The most important of those came five years ago in the final of the men’s football tournament at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The two sides could not be separated after 120 minutes but Brazil triumphed 5-4 on penalties to get some measure of revenge for their humiliating defeat two years earlier.
Brazil U23 won two and lost one of their three preparatory friendlies. Germany’s only friendly came in the 1-1 draw with Honduras U23.
Brazil predicted lineup vs Germany: Prediction
Brazil are heavy favorites to successfully defend their Olympic crown and will be keen to start their tournament on a winning note. Despite naming an Under-23 side, the Selecao still have enough quality to give mainstream national teams a run for their money.
The two sides are traditional attacking teams and their historic rivalry means that this could be an exciting game with plenty of goalmouth action. Germany have what it takes to get the job done against Brazil but we are predicting a victory for Jardine’s side.
