Reigning Olympic champions Brazil will go head-to-head with the Ivory Coast at the International Stadium Yokohama on Sunday in their second group stage match of the Tokyo 2020 men's football tournament.
The Brazilians served notice of their intent and ability to retain the Olympic Gold medal in men's football with an impressive and entertaining 4-2 triumph over Germany on Thursday.
Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Brazil vs Ivory Coast to get your teeth stuck into.
Brazil are 1/4 to win, with the Ivory Coast priced at 10/1 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 9/2.
Prediction: 5-0 (18/1)
Half-Time/Full-Time: Brazil/Brazil (3/4)
Last time out against Germany, Richarlison became the first Brazilian to score a hat-trick at an Olympic Games since Bebeto in 1996.
Even more impressively, the 24-year-old did it in just 30 minutes.
Anyway, for that sole reason, we're backing Brazil to lead from the first to last whistle against the Ivory Coast. It sounds like a banker given their recent form, too, doesn't it?
First Goalscorer: Richarlison (3/1)
Brazil have made a strong start to their tournament, having beaten Germany in a six-goal thriller last time out.
Richarlison was their star man in that game and the Toffees forward will be keen to make an impression at the Olympics after a fairly decent display at the Copa America this summer.
For that sole reason, we're backing the 24-year-old to draw first blood against an Ivory Coast side known for being shaky at the back. Odds of 3/1 seem far too juicy to miss on this one - fill your boots.
