Germany U23 to Win with Handicap (-1)

In fact, they are a much better team and our prediction is for Germany to win this game by at least two goals.

Saudi Arabia U23 vs Germany U23 preview: An easy job for Germany?
Germany U23 team came to this Olympic Games as the losing team in the 2016 final against Brazil. Germany lost that game on penalties after the game was tied after the regular and extra time. However, the two teams met in the first round in these Olympics as well, and Brazil dominated that game and won 4-2. Germany now has to beat Saudi Arabia to remain in the race for the next round.
This is the first time that Saudi Arabia is participating in the football tournament at the Olympics since 1996, which tells you enough of the quality of their team. Furthermore, the last five matches that the Saudi Arabia U23 team played in the Olympics have all been losses, so the team doesn't really have high expectations here either, especially after they've lost the game to Ivory Coast in the first round.
