Venezuela v Canada Odds: Salomon Rondon 11/5 to score in third successive Copa America game

There's little to split Venezuela and Canada ahead of what should be an enthralling quarter-final showdown this weekend, with Venezuela the ever so slight 17/10 pre-match favourites.

Canada were fancied to impress at this year's staging of the Copa America, and whilst they have secured themselves a spot in the quarter-finals of the competition, the manner in which they have done so has been far from glamorous.

Les Rouges scored just a solitary goal throughout the group stages - in a 1-0 victory over 10 man Peru - but still managed to advance through to the knockout stages behind table-topping Argentina thanks to a goalless draw with Chile on matchday three.

By contrast, Venezuela's passage to the last eight couldn't have been any smoother, having overcome Mexico, Jamaica and Ecuador to clean up in Group B, scoring five goals, and conceding just one, in the process.

Former West Bromwich Albion man Salomon Rondon has been a key performer for the South Americans, notching in each of his country's last two outings, and appears to have been priced up handsomely at 11/5 to score against Canada.

In fact, Rondon, who is renowned for his aerial prowess, has been BOOSTED to 10/1 to score a header in the forthcoming encounter, another option that will carry appeal with Venezuela likely to count on their set-piece qualities as they seek to crack the Canadian's resolve.

In terms of the outcome of the match, well, it's too difficult to call, as proven by the 10/11 odds on either nation to progress in the competition.

The expectation is that there will be little to separate the teams come the full-time whistle, highlighting potential value in the match ending in a draw - and going to penalties - at 21/10.

From there, the outcome would be anyone's guess... hence, the 9/2 on offer to both countries to secure their qualification via spot kicks.
