Spain U23 faces Ivory Coast U23 in the Olympic Games quarterfinals. The match will be played on Saturday, July 31st at Miyagi Stadium (Miyagi)
The Spaniards have not lost at the Olympics yet. The Red Fury took first place in the group with Egypt, Argentina, and Australia. Spain started the tournament with a goalless draw against Egypt. Then the Red Fury beat Australia with a minimum score (1-0) and tied against Argentina (1-1). Before the start of the Olympics, the Spaniards held a friendly match against Japan (1-1). No more than two goals have been scored in any of the last four matches. The Spaniards scored all three goals in four games after the break. Bookmakers give the coefficient of 1.43 on the fact that Spain will aggrieve the opponent’s goalkeeper in the second half.

Like Spain, Ivory Coast has not lost a single match in the group. The Elephants started with a victory over Saudi Arabia, played a goalless draw against Brazil, and failed to determine the winner in the game against Germany (1-1). Both sides have scored in two of three games of Cote d'Ivoire at the Olympics. Bookmakers give the coefficient of 2.11 that both teams will score in the upcoming quarterfinals. I will note that three out of five goals in the Elephants’ matches at the Olympic Games were scored in the second half. Beyond that, three players were sent off, and two of them were the Ivorians.
African teams know how to deliver surprises at the Olympics. Nigeria and Cameroon even were the winners of the Olympic Games. In addition, the Nigerians took silver and bronze medals. Ghana also took third place on the pedestal. Ivory Coast has a strong team. In the group, the Elephants did not lose to Brazil and Germany. And it cannot be said unequivocally that Spain is the clear favorite of the upcoming match. However, the Spaniards know how to shut out. They conceded only one goal in the group. None of the matches of Spain pleased the viewers with more than two goals. I will expect the same from the quarterfinals against Ivory Coast.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
