Brazil will try to defend and retain their gold medal which they won at their home tournament five years ago, while it will be Spain's first appearance in an Olympic final since 2000.
The current champions, looking for glory in Tokyo
Brazil topped Group D by two points after the first week of fixtures in Japan, recording two wins and one draw.
The South American squad faced Egypt in the quarter-final and secured their tickets for the next round thanks to a successful strike from Matheus Cunha.
The semi-final against Mexico ended as a goalless draw after extra time, despite a total of 10 shots on target between the two teams, but the Brazilians emerged victorious after winning the penalty shootout 4-1.
Spain, inspired by the gold at the Barcelona Olympics
Meanwhile, Spain only scored twice in their first three games in Japan. However, Luis de la Fuente's side scored five goals against Ivory Coast in the quarterfinals, with Rafa Mir registering a hat-trick.

Hosts Japan were the opponents for Spain in the semi-final and the young Spaniards needed the extra time to defeat the Asian team thanks to Marco Asensio's strike five minutes from the end.
Spain's Olympic campaign this year has been a successful one already having reached the final and guaranteed themselves at least a silver medal, considering since the nation's last medal in 2000.
