Neymar Jr.’s Brazilian team has got pretty decent group or we can say that it would be a walk on cake for yellow team as Selecao to play Venezuela, Bolivia and Peru teams which are not as stronger as Brazil. Hosts Brazil won last Copa America in 2007 and team would look to win all three games in the pool stage to enter in knockouts where they may face top teams like Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.
Peru, Bolivia and Venezuela will have heavy competition and three teams will be in the race to get second position in the group. However Peru will be favorite to secure 2nd place in the Group-A.
Top two teams from Group-A will through to quarter-finals of 2019 Copa America. From this group, it is predicted that Brazil and Peru will qualify directly for the knockout stage. Meanwhile third place team can make it cut to quarterfinal on the basis of rankings of other teams. Venezuela may attain third position in Pool-A.
