As part of one of the semifinal matches of the Olympic tournament in Tokyo, the players of the national teams of Mexico and Brazil will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in the upcoming confrontation?
The last time the Mexican national team won gold medals in London, where they easily passed the group stage, after which they beat their opponent in the final today. At the OI-2016, the Aztecs could not even reach the playoffs, but they look very cool in Tokyo. They started the tournament with a victory (4: 1), after which they failed to cope with Japan (1: 2) and closed all questions in the confrontation with South Africa (3:0). In the quarterfinals of the tournament, the nominal hosts staged an enchanting duel with South Korea, which they won with a hockey score of 6: 3.
The Brazilian national team came to Tokyo as the champion of the Olympic Games. The yellow-greens were able to get this title in the final of the match with Germany, which they defeated in a series of 11-meter strikes. In Japan, Selesao started with a victory over Germany (4: 2), after which they lost points with Ivory Coast (0:0), and in the last round they dealt with Saudi Arabia (3:1). In the quarterfinals of South America, they could not easily beat Egypt with a minimum score of 1: 0.
Statistics and figures:
- Brazil is the favorite of the meeting;
- Mexico has 2 wins in 5 meetings;
- Brazil has not lost in the last 10 games;
- The rivals have met only once in their history at the OI;
- That fight took place in London in 2012. Mexico defeated Brazil 2-1.
I don't know about you, but in this match I believe in the Mexican national team, which shows a great game and is able to beat any opponent it meets. We bet on the "Aztecs" for a good quote.
