Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 1:30am BST (on Tuesday). Premier Sports will provide live coverage in the United Kingdom.


From Group C, Mexico and Venezuela have already qualified for the quarter-final of the 2016 Copa America. After beating Uruguay and Panama, both teams have sealed six points from two matches so far.

Mexico are leading the group table due to their better goal difference, while Venezuela are behind them. Rafael Dudamel can see his men overtake Mexico and lead the table, only if they manage to beat them.

A draw is sufficient for Mexico to finish Group C on top as a win would see them clinch the first spot. ‎Juan Carlos Osorio's men have an impressive defensive record and he will be hoping his side could extend that run when they face Venezuela on Monday.
