Venezuela is the National Brazilian Team’s next Qualifiers challenge

The National Brazilian team has already left Natal to face their next challenge! The team travelled to Mérida, where they will play against Venezuela, this Tuesday (11), by 21h30, at the Estadio Metropolitano, for Russia’s 2018 World Cup Qualifiers.

Tite’s team arrives the the duel’s stage with a few new things. Neymar Jr. won’t play the match against Venezuela. The player, who did a great job on the 5-0 rout against Bolivia, received his second yellow card and can’t play the game, only returning in the classic between Brazil and Argentina, at Maracanã.

In NJr’s place, Willian will step inside the pitch, partnering up with Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus. Paulinho also returns to the team, in Giuliano’s place and Oscar will be the new number 10, while Neymar Jr. is away.

With five victories, three draws and one defeat, the National Brazilian team goes for their 10th round seeking another victory. With 18 points, Brazil remains in second, behind Uruguay, who leads with 19. This round’s adversary, Venezuela, is in tenth place, with two points.
