Had you just stopped Brazil’s opening match against Egypt 30 minutes in, there would have been no doubt which team would have been issuing the stomping. The Brazilians were clearly the better side, and they logged a trio of goals without answer in that first half hour. However, it’s almost as if the team went to sleep when it went into the locker room. The very talented side really didn’t look good at the back, save for the fact that Rafael scored the opening goal of the match 16 minutes in. But of course, the best highlight of the match was the Neymar goal, which is going to be the first of many here in this tournament, and along the way for the Brazilian national team. Hulk has to be particularly careful in this fixture, knowing that he picked up a yellow card in the opening match against Egypt, and another yellow will see him left on the bench for the third and final match in the group stage. Of course, three points here, and that match is going to prove to be elementary.

This is the first time that Belarus is going to be playing in the Olympics for this nation that is just 20 years old as its own team. Belarus has never been beaten by more than two goals, and it has never won by more than four, but unfortunately, this might be the first time that the former happens. This is likely to be a heck of a lot different match than an opening fixture against a New Zealand team that has never really been all that great in its history at the U-23 or the national level either. Dmitry Baga, just 22 years old, scored a goal out of the midfield in a very important fixture to start this tournament, but he and the rest of his offense know that it has to put a few more balls in the back of nets to be able to get into the second round of this tournament.

Brazil vs. Belarus Match Preview & Analysis: Normally speaking, getting two goals is a whole heck of a lot, but in the end, we just don’t know if Belarus is going to be able to hang around with the mighty Brazilians. There are just too many talented players on this team, regardless of whether they are over or under the age of 23. Brazil was able to go up 3-0 on a much better Egyptian side after just a half hour. This could be a 3-0 match at halftime and a 10-0 match by the time it is all said and done with if the Brazilians want it to be. It won’t be there bad, but it should be a heck of a lot bad enough to make this a cover for the South Americans.
