The last time Brazil met Egypt was also in the Olympic Games. Neymar and Co. overcame their Pharaohs in a close 3-2 win and would go on to claim the gold medal. The odds favour the Canaries in this meeting given Egypt’s inconsistent displays in the group stage fixtures. Expect the all-conquering Brazil to make little work of their rivals and progress to the semi-finals.
And now they take on an experienced Egypt side as they look to book a semi-final against South Korea or Mexico.
The Egyptians have built from the back and qualified second while conceding just one goal in the group of death featuring Argentina, Spain and Australia.
The Pharaohs under Gharib Shawky are conservative. They do enough to get past the line and are content to keep their rivals at bay. This goes against the samba principles that Brazil adopt in the lower age groups. While Egypt has made this far on the back of three-goal contributions, the Seleacao has been involved with 10 goals. It will be the latter who will dictate the proceedings and we should see an Over 2.5 goals scoreline.
Douglas Luiz has served his one-match ban after the red card he received against Ivory Coast last week.
Jardine Andre would like his side to secure a second clean sheet to give their rivals something to be concerned with. Against Egypt, they have their best chance as they have been shut out twice in three outings. However, it looks unlikely that this feat will be accomplished given their own tendency to concede and Egypt’s attacking prowess. Expect both teams to get on the scoreboard and give a good account of their abilities.
Richarlison will likely continue up top for the Brazilians.
Ammar Hamdi will be looking to play a part from the off for Egypt, having come off the bench to notch in his side’s 2-0 win over Australia.
