Mexico vs Brazil: only one step away from the gold
We offer a prediction for the Summer Olympics match, in which Mexico will play against Brazil on August 3. Who will advance into the final of the tournament? The answer is down below.
For the most recent time Mexico won the golden medals in London, where they easily got past the group stage and then beat their today opponent in the final. At the 2016 Olympic Games Mayas were eliminated in the group stage.
In Tokyo Tricolors started with a victory over France (4:1), then were defeated by Japan (1:2) and clinched a play-off berth with a win over South Africa (3:0). In the quarter-final nominal hosts took part in the goal fest with South Korea team and recorded a 6:3 victory.
Brazil national team arrived to Tokyo as the current holders of Olympic gold medal. Yellow-Blues won the title in the final match against Germany, Brazilians were more fortunate in the penalty shoot-out.
In Tokyo Selecao started with a victory over Germany (4:2), then suddenly dropped points in the match against Cote d'Ivoire (0:0) and in the last round recorded another win over Saudi Arabia (3:1). In the quarter-final South American team secured a win in a close match against Egypt (1:0).
In 4 out of last 5 matches of Brazil goals were scored in both halves
In 2 out of 4 most recent matches of Mexico a draw was recorded in one of the halves
Brazil won 5 matches in a row
In our opinion, we should expect a contested match. Both teams deserved to play in the final, but Brazil's squad is stronger. It will not be easy for the current champion of Olympic Games in Rio, but we believe that they will succeed.
Our prediction - Brazil to win
We are not expecting a number of goals here, everything will probably be decided by one or two goals. We are expecting a struggle in the middle of the pitch.
Our second bet is on total under 2,5 goals
