Olympic Soccer Women’s Gold Medal Game
Canada Vs Sweden
- When: Thursday, August 5 at 10:00 pm ET
Canada versus Sweden should be a dynamite match. Let’s start with the Canadians, who pulled off a shocker when they beat the U.S. in the semifinals.
But although many were surprised at how easily Canada beat the United States, the Canadians have played great throughout the tournament. The Canadians show 3 victories and 2 draws in their 5 matches at the Olympics.
The wins, 2-1 against Chile, via penalty kicks versus Brazil, and 1-0 against USA, impress big time. But so do the draws against Japan and Great Britain. Canada has a shot win.
Sweden deserves to be favored, though. The Swedes have won all 5 of their Olympic matches: 3-0 versus the U.S., 4-2 against Australia, 2-0 in a match against New Zealand, 3-1 against Japan, and 1-0 versus Australia again, this time in the semifinals.
The best soccer team in the Olympic Women’s Tournament shouldn’t lose out on the gold medal. Getting by Canada won’t be easy, but the Swedes should continue their magical run to the top spot on the podium.
Soccer Pick: Sweden
Olympic Soccer Men’s Gold Medal Game
Spain Vs Brazil
- When: Saturday, August 7 at 7:30 am ET
Both semifinals in the Olympic Men’s Tournament played true to form. Brazil required a penalty shootout to get past Mexico. But the Brazilians, one of the tournament favorites, did get the victory.
The Brazilians now tackle the Spanish, who beat host Japan 1-0. Spain is loaded with European Soccer club players. Brazil has the awesome Richarlison.
Which team will get ahead? It’s tough to go against Spain. The Spanish dominated the Ivory Coast 5-2 to win their quarterfinals match. Leipzig forward Danny Olmo scored a couple of goals. Mikal Oyarzabal, a Real Sociedad player, scored another goal.
But although Spain played great to get past the Ivory Coast, they struggled against Japan. The Spanish knocked out the host nation via a single goal.
Brazil had a tough match against Mexico. However, Richarlison and his mates faced a team that decided to play defense first. The gambit worked for El Tri, who almost pulled off the upset win via penalties.
Spain will play like a club team, which means Brazil could thrive. Richarlison will be the best player on the pitch. The Everton forward will either dominate or set up his teammates for awesome looks. Either way, Brazil is worth backing to repeat their 2016 Rio Olympic gold medal win.
Soccer Pick: Brazil
