The first men’s semifinals match in Rio Olympics football will happen between Brazil and Honduras. This Rio Olympics football live stream is scheduled for August 17 at 1 PM Rio local time.
These two countries are expected to give their best in order to advance to the final round of the competition.
Brazil started their two games in the opening round with draws against South Africa and Iraq respectively. But they recovered in their preliminary round when they scored four goals over a goalless Denmark team.
The Brazilians entered the semifinals round by beating Colombia. Neymar led the way for his country as he delivered his first goal in Rio Olympics.
Meanwhile, Honduras had a much harder time as compared to Brazil in the first round. The Hondurans had more goals than Brazil, but they also allowed their opponents to score goals. This country barely won their matches in the group stage.
Honduras still advanced to the semifinals by beating South Korea in a hard-fought win for the country.
This first men’s semifinal match will be shown in the Rio Olympics football live stream sites below.
The Brazilians win the match by scoring two or three goals over Honduras’ one or two goals. The heavy crowd that supports Brazil is really crucial at this stage of the tournament.
Honduras could only defeat Brazil by remaining composed and focused throughout the match. They need to be active on the ball and not allow Neymar dictate the tempo for his team.
