Brazil U23 vs Germany U23: times, TV and how to watch online
All the information you need on how and where to watch Brazil U23 take on Germany U23 in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games soccer tournament on Thursday.
The finalists of the 2016 Olympic Games, Brazil Under-23s and Germany Under 23-s, will go head-to-head in one of the most anticipated games on Thursday in the opening match of their respective Group D campaigns.

Two giants collide in the opener
Germany will also be looking at the medals, although they haven’t been able to make a lot of noise in the Olympic tournament over the years. East Germany won the gold in 1976, while the West secured the bronze medal 12 years later in Seoul.
Now current coach Stefan Kuntz, under whom Germany have reached three successive Under-21 Euros, will try to guide the European squad to Olympic glory with a roster with plenty of Bundesliga experience.
Paulinho, Richarlison and Cunha are expected to be in the forward line for Brazil, while Germany will try to counterattack with the trio of Richter, Kruse and Amiri up front.
