Brazil vs Egypt Predictions
Brazil have a fearsome attack but come up against an organised Egypt side whose matches are often tight and low-scoring. I am tipping Brazil to win a cagey affair as they just have too much going forward.
- Brazil vs Egypt Predictions
- Brazil have won 3 of their last 4 matches (all competitions).
- Brazil have scored 12 goals in their last 3 matches (Olympics).
- Egypt have seen BTTS No in their last 4 matches (all competitions).
- Egypt have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 3 matches (Olympics).
Head to Head
The sides sit a 1-1 across their two previous meetings with no draws.
They met in the 2012 Olympics as Brazil won 3-2. Their last meeting was in November 2020 as Egypt won 2-1 in a friendly.
Brazil qualified for the Olympics through the CONMEBOL Pre-Olympic Tournament.
After beating UAE 5-2 in a pre-tournament friendly, they began their Olympics group stage with a 4-2 win against Germany with Richarlison scoring a hattrick.
Brazil then drew 0-0 with Ivory Coast after an early red card for Douglas Luiz. Their last match was a 3-1 win against Saudi Arabia with Richarlison scoring twice.
Brazil Injuries & Team News
Goalkeepers: Santos, Brenno, Lucão
Defenders: Diego Carlos, Ricardo Graça, Guilherme Arana, Dani Alves, Bruno Fuchs, Nino, Abner
Midfielders: Gabriel Menino, Douglas Luiz, Bruno Guimarães, Matheus Henrique, Reinier, Claudinho
Forwards: Paulinho, Matheus Cunha, Richarlison, Antony, Malcom, Gabriel Martinelli
Brazil have a settled side with winger Gabriel Martinelli of Arsenal and Malcolm both only on the bench.
Douglas Luiz is suspended after his red card against Ivory Coast. Matheus Henrique should take his place in the engine room.
Egypt came into the Olympics after a 3-0 friendly victory against South Africa in June.
They started the group stages with a fine 0-0 draw against Spain in a very disciplined display. A 1-0 defeat to Argentina followed meaning their final match was a must-win.
Egypt qualified for the quarter-finals with a 2-0 win against Australia. Ahmed Yasser Rayan and Ammar Hamdi scored the goals.
Egypt Injuries & Team News
Goalkeepers: Mohamed El Shenawy, Mahmoud Gad, Mohamed Sobhy
Defenders: Osama Galal, Mohamed Abdel Salam, Ahmed Hegazi, Ahmed Ramadan, Mahmoud Hamdy
Midfielders: Ammar Hamdi, Karim Fouad, Nasser Maher, Akram Tawfik, Karim El Eraki, Emam Ashour Ahmed Abou El Fotouh
Forwards: Salah Mohsen, Taher Mohamed, Ramadan Sobhi, Ibrahim Adel, Ahmed Yasser Rayyan, Abdel Rahman Magdy, Nasser Mansi
Coach Shawky Garib has a big choice to make up front. Ammar Hamdi was dropped against Australia but scored as a substitute and could start here.
The rest of the side has been unchanged in the last two matches. Egypt have a settled backline led by captain Mohamed El Shenawy in goal.
We are backing BTTS No in this encounter with Brazil coming out victorious. A 2-0 scoreline is tipped.
