Brazil vs Egypt prediction Brazil U-23 in the on Saturday, with Brazil looking to reach the semi-finals for a fourth consecutive Olympics.
Egypt, meanwhile, is trying to reach this stage of the competition for the first time since the 1964 Olympics, which were also held in Tokyo.
Spearheaded by Richarlison, Brazil cruised to the top spot of Group D taking seven points from a possible nine.
The 0-0 draw against Ivory Coast – in which Douglas Luiz was sent off in just 11 minutes – was flanked by 4-2 and 3-1 victories over Germany and Saudi Arabia, with the Everton forward scoring five goals phenomenal. two wins.
Apart from Spain, who named the six players in their squad who also played a major role in helping the senior side reach the semifinals of Euro 2020 in early July, there is little doubt that Brazil have the most talented squad at their disposal this year. Olympic.
As such, head coach Andre Jardine will be expecting nothing less than a comfortable win against Egypt on Saturday as they look to keep any remaining energy in the tank ahead of a potential semi-final clash against Spain.
Indeed, having picked up just one point from their first two games, there may be an element of happiness in reaching the quarter-finals in the Egypt squad.
However, Shawky Gharieb's side have proven they won't give up easily against a more talented Brazilian side on Saturday, having conceded just one goal in their three games at the Olympics so far.
Likewise, though, they scored just two goals after picking up excellent points from a 0-0 draw against Spain in their opening game before losing 1-0 to Argentina. Most importantly, they beat Australia 2-0 last time out to beat Oliroos to second in Group C.
The African outfit will have to maintain their defensive solidity from the group stage while potentially offering more threat in transition to avoid being squeezed inside a third of their own defense for extended periods of time during Saturday's quarter-finals.
Brazil will welcome Luiz back after the Aston Villa midfielder served his suspension for the win against Saudi Arabia.
The 23-year-old is likely to return to Jardine's starting XI, with Matheus Henrique stepping down from the side.
The forced substitution has been Gardine's only tournament change so far, so it would be surprising to see another player at this stage of the competition, especially given their outstanding form.
Egypt, meanwhile, are likely to continue the 3-5-2 system that served them well during the 2-0 win against Australia, with no personnel changes possible given the impressive nature of the win.
Former West Bromwich Albion defender Ahmed Hegazi, who captained his national team as one of the players over their age at the Olympics, will once again lead Gharieb's defensive unit from a three-back midfield.
