After host nation Brazil officially opened the 2019 Copa America by cruising past Bolivia 3-0 — despite a “lackluster” showing that drew jeers from their own fans, according to the BBC — the tournament is kicking into high gear with another Group A match. Two teams that qualified for the quarterfinals in the special 2016 Centenario edition of the Copa America — Venezuela and Peru — will face off, looking to keep pace with the host country who sits comfortably atop the group. Venezuela comes in with momentum on their side after they trounced the United States 3-0 in a friendly match on June 9. Peru, on the other hand, suffered a 3-0 drubbing by Colombia on that same day, and have lost four of their last six matches, all friendlies. Los Incas will try to turn their fortunes around in the match that will live stream from Brazil.
