BR U23 vs GE U23 Dream11 Prediction: Brazil and Germany, who were the finalists in the 2016 Olympics football games, face each other in the group D. The game will take place at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama. Brazil always need to be taken seriously when it comes to the Olympics and they have rightly held this status with gold, silver, and bronze medals. Germany have had little action in 2021 after playing just one match – a draw with Honduras – so far.
The draw has been somewhat unkind for two of the strongest teams in the tournament as Brazil face off against Germany in what is a re-run of the 2016 Final which saw Brazil win gold after a penalty shootout. They meet once again and it is the South Americans who are fancied by many given the quality they have named in their squad for Tokyo. Led by veteran skipper Dani Alves, they have Everton’s Richarlison, Zenit’s Malcom, Sevilla’s Diego Carlos, Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes, Hertha’s Matheus Cunha and Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz to count on in a strong squad.

Recent international tournaments have taught us that greater individual quality does not always trump collective spirit and in-game cohesion, but Brazil’s Olympic Selecao certainly has the edge when it comes to talent. They can, therefore, get their quest for back-to-back golds underway with a win in Yokohama – the city where the senior side lifted the 2002 World Cup with a final victory against Germany. In our BR U23 vs GE U23 Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 3-1 win for Brazil in this match.
