Mens Olympic Football - Brazil U23 v Egypt U23
The team everyone wants to watch joins the fray in the 2nd match of Group C. The only major trophy to elude the Brazilians is Olympic Gold. The squad brought over to London is top class. Egypt are struggling after the disaster in Port Said. The domestic game was postponed so they will be looking to bring some cheer back home.

Brazil are hot favourites to win the tournament and should get some sort of medal, They have an easy group and should play a fairly easy tie in quarterfinals. Egypt have played a lot of matches in 2012 with no league matches the youth sides have been busy.
Key Points - Brazil have selected a side that would go far in senior tournaments. Every position is filled by a top class player. They have attacking options all over the pitch and should score plenty of goals. In Hulk and Neymar they have forwards who will be looking to top the goalscorer charts. With Lucas Moura,Ganso and Oscar there will be plenty of creativity. Thiago Silva will bring some needed experience to the back line and Marcelo will be up and down the left flank. Egypt have selected three of their best players to fill the overage spots but they may not be able to help stem the tide. Aboutreika will lead the team and is the creative hub, I dont expect him to able to do much in this match however.
Betting Analysis - Brazil have too much for Egypt and its simply a matter of how many goals they can score. With attacking intent all over the park Brazil will overwhelm the Africans. Asian Handicaps are the market we will focus on and -2 goals is the selection. If Brazil win by 2 we get money back, win by more than 2 and the bet is won.
