On the final matchday of Group E in the women's Olympic tourament, the mighty Brazilians will face a tough and inspired Great Britain side that will be lifted by a loud crowd.Both teams are tied on points after their first two matches, but Brazil sits ahead on goal difference with six scored and none conceded while Britain has scored four while also shutting out its opposition.
Both squads were able to defeat a surprisingly tough New Zealand side 1-0 but made little work of Cameroon, with Brazil blitzing the Africans by five while Britain notched three.
Advancement to the knockout stage has already been secured for both sides, but they will obviously wish to clinch first place in order to avoid a quarterfinal match with high-finishing opposition.
Brazil is paying a good offer of 2.00 to withstand the tough crowd in London and should win this match, though expect a close result, likely by only a goal.
The draw result is at 3.25 at Ladbrokes.com and could be a savvy bet.
The Brits are being given minimal chance by bookies to win outright and as such as being offered at 4.00, and though they are certainly capable of pulling it off, it is unlikely to happen against this highly skilled Brazil squad.
There are close to 100 bets to look at in Olympic betting at Ladbrokes and one bet I like here is for either Cristiane or Marta to open the scoring, as they’ve produced four of Brazil’s six goals. The former is offered at 5.50, while Marta is at 6.00, and you can simply wager on both to hedge it.
If you fancy Britain to open up the scoring then Kelly Smith is your best bet with a payout of 8.00.
The Asian Handciap lines see Britain issued a half goal lead and a payout of 1.86, while down a half goal are still offered at evens. The over 2.0/2.5 is at 1.83 while the under is at 2.03.
One bet to very much consider is for both teams not to score in the game which can be had at evens.
