The last game before the ones with medals on the table takes place on the 17th of August, between two teams full of history and tradition within the Olympic Games.
Nigeria will play Germany for a spot in the final, where a much-awaited game against (probably) Brazil awaits the two teams, as well as a chance to go home with a medal.
Regardless, the teams playing here will most probably go home with a medal, Honduras being clearly the weakest side of this stage. But then again, anything is possible in football.

The Africans played quick, direct and efficient against Denmark in the quarter-finals, winning 2-0 without any nervousness. They were clearly the better side, and the Nordics even seemed content with the extent of the loss.
Although they only controlled the ball for 49% of the time, Nigeria showed their great form through quick passes and many shots – the same game which they will try to play against Germany.
Meanwhile, after an already traditional sketchy start, Germany impressed in the last group game against Fiji and continued their great streak beating Portugal 4-0 in the quarter-finals.
Gnabry led the team once again, a team which had 54% possession and no less than 20 shots towards goal, 10 of which found their target. This is the game Germany usually plays – attacking you till you suffocate, regardless of the scoreline.
From a betting perspective, this is undoubtedly the closest of the two semi-finals. Germany to score is a certainty, and we even back them to win during regular time. Their odds (2.00 at most booking agencies) are absolutely great – giving you the chance to double your money.
Other good ideas are going for an over 2,5 goal bet and one revolving around possession – Germany will surely have more, and we even think it will be around 55-56%. Good luck in choosing the option which is best for you!
