Brazil u23 vs Spain u23: Prediction and Betting Tips
Brazil u23 not taking chances offensively
Despite not being very impressive in their last two matches, Brazil made their way to the final of the Tokyo Olympic Games after beating Mexico on penalties. They now have the chance to become the fourth nation to win back-to-back Gold Medals. Against European teams in Olympic finals, Brazil have a 1-2 win/loss record having lost to France and the Soviet Union in 1984 and 1988 and beat Germany in 2016.
Coach Jardine’s team faced some difficulties in scoring in the knockout stages. The Selecao scored once against Egypt in the quarter-final, while their match against Mexico finished goalless. The Gold medal holders from Rio 2020 played more cautiously in the knockout stages not taking risks going forward which led to their last two matches see under 1.5 goals.
Brazil Key points
- Brazil are undefeated in 18 matches.
- The number of clean sheets by Brazil in the last ten matches is four
- BTTS happened in Brazil’s six of ten matches
Spain u23 need to be more clinical early on
Spain struggled in the offensive third of the field in their semi-final match against Japan. But the goal by Asensio against Japan in the dying minutes of extra time will be coach De la Fuentes’s team’s most precious one having sent them to the Gold Medal match and a chance to win it for the second time after 1992. El Roja will now play in their fourth Olympic final.
It wasn’t the best start for Spain in the group stages after drawing with Egypt in their opening match. They then beat Australia by one goal again scoring late and drew with Argentina in their third match. In the quarter-final against Ivory Coast, Spain’s Rafael Mir equalized in the 91st minute to send the game to extra time in which Spain rallied to a 5-2 win.
Spain Key Points
- Spain are undefeated in six matches
- BTTS happened in 25% of Spain’s last eight matches
- Spain had five clean sheets in eight matches
Brazil u23 vs Spain u23 Prediction
We can say two of the best teams reached the final of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games men’s football Gold medal match. This is the third meeting between these two having each won a match in 1968 and 1976.
This will be a very tactical match between two coaches who love to keep possession of the ball. All the pressure will be on the midfield players of both teams as they will try to control the game by dominating the center of the field.
We think both coaches, Jardine and De la Fuente will take a cautious approach to the game which might limit goalscoring-chances and consequently, we could see few goals.
The bookies are offering almost equal chances for both teams for a win with high odds. In the combos section at Vbet, double chance and total goals scored combined bet has a very good value.
