COL vs VEN betting tips and prediction

Colombia is looking like a better side of the two, as Venezuela’s squad is severely hit with COVID they have fewer options to pick the squad from. If anybody from their squad gets injured then it is even worse for them. Colombia can easily beat Venezuela in this fixture.
