BRAZIL vs SPAIN BETTING TIPS AND PREDICTIONS
These two sides have had a somewhat challenging trip to the Gold medal match. They have been tested, and they have weathered the storm to book their respective places in the final. Goals have been difficult to come by on a consistent basis for both sides.
In some games, Brazil have show that they can rake in goals and in some other games, they have struggled to get going in front of goal. Spain have been a lot less illustrious and going by this, goals will come at a premium in the final. Therefore, we are predicting that there will be more goals in the second 45 minutes than in the first half at 2.21 on Melbet.
Given what is at stake, the game is expected to be closely fought and taking into consideration their last results, the first half is likely to end in a draw. So, we are backing a first half draw at 1.84 on Melbet. You can also have access to more betting predictions and they are available for free.
