🥇 Mexico vs Brazil
Heading into the semifinals of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, no side has scored more goals than Mexico’s 14 in four fixtures (W3, L1), with El Tri putting six past South Korea in the quarterfinals in a nine-goal thriller. Three of Mexico’s four games have seen both teams score, with their matches now averaging five goals per game. Brazil's medal credentials are about to face an almighty examination.
🥇 Japan vs Spain
Japan needed penalties to overcome New Zealand in the quarterfinal. With just one of their last seven Olympic matches (W5, D1, L1) decided by more than a one-goal margin, another close and tense affair is expected. Spain only scored two goals during the group stage, which saw them draw two of their three games (W1). For much of their quarter-final against Ivory Coast, goal-scoring continued to be a problem too. Japan can keep it tight.
