Mexico vs Brazil: times, TV and how to watch online

Mexico and Brazil will go head-to-head in a repeat of the London 2012 final match, this time in the semi-finals of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics men's football tournament on Tuesday.

Jaime Lozano's Mexico gave an amazing display of attacking strength in beating South Korea 3-6 to reach the final four, while reigning champions Brazil defeated Egypt thanks to a Matheus Cunha goal.

Mexico v Brazil: a goal fest on the cards?

Brazil will probably be aware they need to be solid in defence against Mexico, who have scored 14 goals in four games. Now El Tri will have the chance of competing for a second Olympic medal in either the gold or bronze medal match.

Even if Brazil’s players were only able to advance by a one-goal margin, André Jardine's side won seven points from a possible nine in the group stage.

One of the reasons for those good numbers is Richarlison, who has bounced back from Copa America heartbreak to become the Canarinha's undisputed No.10 in Tokyo. In doing so, he has sparked rumours that he could be reunited with Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

The winner of this match will face either Japan or Spain. Jardine will likely try to keep it a low scoring affair with a solid defence, especially knowing the firepower the Mexicans possess up front.
