Mexico’s stock could not be higher after their thorough 6-3 dismantling of South Korea in the quarterfinals but Brazil seem destined for the Gold Medal.

Richarlison has done an admirable job leading the line and looms as a key figure here. The Brazilians advanced to the medal round after edging Egypt 1-0 in the quarterfinals with Cunha scoring the lone goal in the first half. 

Mexico might be scoring for fun but the fact they were caught out three times by South Korea does not bode well against a team with this level of attacking talent.

If Brazil want to play Mexico tight and turn this game into an arm wrestle, they can do that and still win it 2-0.

Should Mexico control the tempo and turn it into a shootout, Brazil can match them and then some. The winner of this match will face either host Japan or Spain in the gold medal match while the loser will fight for the bronze. 

Verdict

Take Brazil to advance to the final.
