The first semi-final of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics men’s football sees champions Brazil take on Mexico on Tuesday afternoon.

This match is a repeat of the London 2012 Gold medal match where the Mexicans triumphed 2-1 courtesy of an Oribe Peralta brace.

Mexico made it to the last four in Tokyo after an extraordinary display saw them hammer South Korea 6-3, whilst Brazil were 1-0 winners against Egypt.

Mexico will get another shot at a second Olympic medal in either the gold or bronze medal match, but their astonishing record of 14 goals in four games gives them the edge.
