Even with nearly nine changes, mostly in the last 10 minutes, the match concluded with a point for each team, leaving Venezuela with 8 points and Ecuador with 5.
Venezuela, exhibiting fewer arguments than La Tri, faced 50,000 spectators at the Monumental Stadium in Maturín.
Yeferson Soteldo, from Venezuela, was the most incisive in the attack but struggled to find partners to bolster his creative efforts.
VAR denied a goal by José Cifuentes for La Tri due to a millimetric offside.
On Tuesday, Ecuador will host the Chilean national team, while Venezuela will visit the new bottom-placed team in the qualifiers, Peru.
