As part of one of the quarterfinal matches of the Olympic football tournament among women's teams, the players of the national teams of Canada and Brazil will come face to face. Which of the competitors will get the victory in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
The 2-time bronze medalist of the Olympic Games last won medals in Rio, after which the team performs very well. At the current championship, the Canadian women's national team started with a draw in a duel with Japan (1: 1), after which it snatched a victory from Chile (2:1) in a dramatic match. In the third round, the representatives of North America were able to share points with Great Britain, which eventually brought five points and the second place in Group E.
The Brazilian women's national team has twice won silver medals at the Olympic Games. At the home tournament, Selesao managed to make it to the playoffs, but the team lost to today's opponents for the third place. At the group stage, the "yellow-greens" started with the defeat of the Chinese women's national team (5: 0), after which they shared points with the Netherlands (3:3), and with great difficulty beat Zambia (1:0), which few sports analysts could have guessed.
Statistics and figures:
- Brazil is the favorite of the meeting;
- Canada has not lost for 6 matches;
- Brazil has a 6-match unbeaten streak;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 0: 0;
- Brazil won 2 of the previous 5 meetings against Canada, once losing to the Maple Leafs.
In this match, I believe in the Canadians, who looked very good at the group stage, showing good results. North American women will impose a fight on their opponents and will be able to pass to the semifinals of the tournament.
