There were no matches at the Mané Garrincha stadium in Brasilia, the scene of the opening match of this controversial Copa América. Brazil, with all its stars and with players who fall from the substitute bench - Vinicius and Gabigol started there, among others - beat Venezuela 3-0, who played with an emergency team after the coronavirus outbreak and with just five players between the relays. Marquinhos, with a heel, Neymar, with a penalty, and Gabigol, with his chest, scored the goals of Tite's team who did nothing more than the obvious: ratify his candidacy against a much weaker and totally decimated rival.

The first minutes were all for the homeowner.

Richarlison had it first, who could not define before the good exit of Joel Graterol.

And later it was Paquetá, who headed alone, but deflected when he only had to hit the rival goal.

Far from feeling the casualties caused by the coronavirus, Vinotinto managed to level the process of the match a bit and even dared to step on Alisson's area with balls for the restless Aristeguieta.

We had to wait for the clock to reach 20 minutes for those in green and yellow to disturb Graterol again, who flew to the right and grabbed the ball after a nice volley shot from Danilo after a corner rebound.

However, that approach ended up being the prelude to the first goal of the afternoon in Brasilia.

A corner came from the left executed by Neymar.

Richarlison anticipated and the loose ball was left to Marquinhos, who defined with some difficulty, half a cue and half as he could, to establish the difference.

Richarlison quickly increased, but the Everton man was clearly offside and had to choke on the goal cry.

However, Brazil did not take their foot off the gas.

Neymar had it first, after a great loan from Marquinho.

Messi's ex-partner controlled and was hooking inwards until he decided to finish off against the near post.

The ball hit the stick.

Fred had it, but Luis Adrián Martínez rejected the head when Graterol seemed beaten.

And then the VAR came on the scene, which had already shown the referee's success in the goal annulled to Richarlison, to check that a ball had not hit the hand of Martínez himself.

At the start of the second half, Brazil flirted again with the goal.

Neymar had it, at 9, after an overflow of Gabriel Jesús, who reached the bottom on the right and sent a hunt that the PSG crack could not connect.

The 2-0 came at 19 minutes of the complement after Neymar hit a penalty.

He defined soft to the left of Graterol who had flung himself the other way.

Had it been a fault?

Yes, Cumaná displaced Danilo and the referee did not hesitate beyond waiting for the VAR's verdict.

Brazil kept hitting the goal door, but failed in the final stitch.

An approach from Gabriel Barbosa, a bitten shot from Casemiro and a good play from Neymar that deflected into a defender and left again stuck to a post.

Gabigol appeared about the hour to sentence the story.

He did it with a goal from the chest, like Messi against Estudiantes, after a great maneuver by Neymar.

Brazil rules in Group B. On Thursday, at 9 pm, they will see them with Peru.

And he will surely go for another step that will take him smoothly to the quarterfinals.
