Both Teams to Score – No
For Brazil, three of the last five games they played this year ended without both teams scoring goals, and for Spain, three of the last five matches also ended that way. Only one of the two head-to-head games between the teams ended with a clean sheet.
1X2 Full Time – Brazil to Win
Spain drew two of the last five matches they played (four out of five, if you don't count the extra time goals that lead them to the gold medal match against Japan and Ivory Coast). Brazil drew only one of the last five games they played at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics while winning the rest.
Total Match Goals – Under 2.5 Goals
Four of the last five matches that Spain's national team played this year ended with under 2.5 total goals scored, and three of the last five fixtures for Brazil also ended the same way. 50% of the head-to-head games between Spain and Brazil played at past Olympic games ended with under 2.5 total goals scored.

Brazil vs Spain: Fixture Preview & Latest News
Brazil and Spain have each traded a win against each other at previous Olympic games in 1968 and 1972. Now, we believe that Brazil will win again for a consecutive year, which will be a first for them at the Olympics. In general, Brazil has more medals than Spain, as well so it makes sense they win on Friday.
We don't think there will be many goals scored because both teams tend to win low-scoring games at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, so far.
Brazil starting XI (4-2-3-1):
Santos, Alves, Nino, Carlos, Arana, Guimaraes, Luiz, Antony, Claudinho, Paulinho, Richarlison
Spain Line-up (4-3-3)
Simon, Cucurella, Torres, Garcia, Gil, Pedri, Zubimendi, Merino, Olmo, Oyarzabal, Asensio
