Brazil vs Spain Mens Olympic Final Tips


A mouthwatering gold medal match is in store at Tokyo 2020, and I'm tipping this one goes to extra time in Yokohama.

Both sides needed extra time or penalties to win through from the semi-finals. It was a fifth draw in Spain's last six matches at the Olympics Games, and the value is on the final being level after 90 minutes.

  • Brazil have drawn 2 of their last 4 matches (Olympic Games).
  • Brazil have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches (Olympic Games).
  • Spain have drawn 5 of their 6 matches (Olympic Games).
  • Brazil have seen under 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 matches (Olympic Games).

Head to Head


Spain and Brazil have met twice before at the Olympic Games. In 1968, Spain were 1-0 winners before Brazil levelled the ledger with a 2-1 win at the 1976 Games.

Brazil Form


Brazil kept their nerve in a penalty shootout as they defeated Mexico 4-1 on spot kicks in the semi-final.

The semi-final had ended 0-0 as Brazil kept a third clean sheet in their last four games in Tokyo.

Having won their opening group game against Germany 4-2, Brazil qualified on the back of a 0-0 draw with Ivory Coast and a 3-1 victory over Saudi Arabia.

Andre Jardine's side were 1-0 winners over Egypt in a hard-fought quarter-final, before getting the better of Mexico on penalties.

Brazil Team News & Squad


Goalkeepers: Santos, Brenno, Lucão
Defenders: Gabriel Menino, Diego Carlos, Ricardo Graça, Guilherme Arana, Dani Alves (captain), Bruno Fuchs, Nino, Abner
Midfielders: Douglas Luiz, Bruno Guimarães, Matheus Henrique, Reinier, Claudinho
Forwards: Paulinho, Matheus Cunha, Richarlison, Antony, Malcom, Gabriel Martinelli

Brazil are expected to be unchanged from the side which started the semi-final. That means substitute roles for Gabriel Martinelli and Malcom once again.

Richarlison is the top scorer in the competition with five goals.

Spain Form


Aside from the 5-2 extra-time win over Ivory Coast in the quarter-finals, Spain have struggled for goals in Tokyo.

That was again the case in the semi-finals as they drew 0-0 with hosts Japan. Marco Asensio settled the last four match with a winner in the 115th minute.

In the group stages, drew 0-0 with Egypt, beat Australia 1-0 and finished level with Argentina after a 1-1 stalemate.

Spain Team News & Squad


Goalkeepers: Unai Simón, Álvaro Fernández, Iván Villar
Defenders: Óscar Mingueza, Marc Cucurella, Pau Torres, Jesús Vallejo, Eric García, Óscar Gil, Juan Miranda
Midfielders: Martín Zubimendi, Mikel Merino, Dani Ceballos (captain), Carlos Soler, Jon Moncayola, Pedri, Javi Puado
Forwards: Marco Asensio, Rafa Mir, Mikel Oyarzabal, Dani Olmo, Bryan Gil

Marco Asensio's extra-time winner in the semi-final could earn him a start at the expense of Rafa Mir.

Otherwise, Spain are predicted to field the same team that saw off hosts Japan.

Verdict

Spain have been the draw specialists in Tokyo. I'm backing another stalemate in the final and it to be decided in extra-time or on penalties.
