Meanwhile, world champions France meet Bolivia while Colombia lock horns with Panama
With all major European domestic league seasons now over for the summer break, attention is once again turning to the international scene and in particular the CONMEBOL Copa America, set to be held from 14 June until 7 July. And this coming Sunday (2 June) some of the participating teams will be in warm-up action, with Venezuela and Ecuador set to face off while World Cup winners France will meet Bolivia. On the Monday evening, Colombia take on Panama.
First things first

As a new customer and with the Copa America just a few short weeks away, there should be a wide range of promotions and special offers available to you.
Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the all-South American clash between Venezuela and Ecuador. Venezuela can come into this match confident after a run of impressive performances over the last few months, including a hugely impressive 3-1 win over Argentina in their most recent friendly outing.
Ecuador, by way of comparison, lost their most recent friendly outing, a 1-0 loss against the USA and will be looking to put together some confidence before the Copa America starts. With that in mind, they desperately need a positive result in this outing despite it only being a friendly match.
And while the betting is tight, it is indeed Ecuador who come into this match as the slight favourites to triumph. You can more than double your money by backing Ecuador to win at 2.20, while Venezuela come in slightly higher at 2.87 – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.20, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting Venezuela’s more impressive recent displays to give them the edge here. A narrow, 2-1 win for Venezuela is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can also more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.15.
France take on Bolivia
On the same day, reigning world champions France meet Bolivia prior to their Euro 2020 qualifiers. The Blues have won their last two matches, scoring eight goals in the process and can come into this latest fixture absolutely brimming with confidence.
Bolivia, in stark contrast, have lost their last two matches without finding the back of the net. They can hardly be relishing the prospect of taking on arguably the strongest team on the planet right now who have been finding the goal with ease.
And it is of no surprise to see that it is France who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to pick up the victory. You can back the world champions to win at just 1.10, while Bolivia are all the way out at 13.00 to record what would be a shock victory – a draw is priced in the middle at 9.00.
This could well end up being a rout. A 4-0 win for the French comes in at 7.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$37.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of over 2.5 goals in the game and a “No” to both teams scoring at 2.30.
Colombia look to record win over Panama
And finally, Colombia take on Panama on Monday evening looking for an encouraging performance prior to their Copa America campaign. Having beaten Japan in the last round of friendly games, the Colombians will be confident of another win here.
Panama, meanwhile, held Brazil to a 1-1 draw in their most recent outing. They will feel confident of doing the same, and perhaps going one better, this time around.
However it is Colombia who come into this match as the clear favourites to pick up the win. You can back Colombia to triumph at just 1.16, while Panama are out at 10.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 6.50.
This should be a fairly comfortable win for the Colombians. A 3-1 victory in their favour comes in at 13.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$65 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing both teams to score at 2.62.
