Copa America: Brazil goals ruled out in Venezuela draw

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) rescued Venezuela on Tuesday after denying two Brazil goals in a goalless draw in Group A in Copa America 2019 on Tuesday.

Hosts Brazil had a third goal by striker Roberto Firmino ruled out by the referee in the first half, this time without VAR assistance.

Brazil is leading Group A with four points from two matches while Venezuela has two points from two games.

Bolivia was defeated by Peru 3-1 to have their second straight loss on Tuesday.

Brazil and Peru have 4 points each while Venezuela have 2 points and Bolivia have no points before the last matches in the group.

The 2019 Copa America football tournament kicked off in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Friday.

The top two nations from each group and the two best third-place nations will qualify for the quarterfinals.
