Brazil and Kenya will play the final match of the 5th round of the 2020 Olympics. The South Americans are the leaders of the quartet, while the Africans are the complete opposite.
The Brazilians are having a perfect tournament with 4 wins in 4 matches. The national team gave up 3 sets, and the day before managed to defeat their direct rival in the fight for the first place Serbia – 3:1. Only the Dominican Republic could put up a good fight against the South Americans. The meeting lasted all 5 sets, as a result of which Brazil pulled out a 3-2 victory.
Kenya is simply a passerby in the current tournament, the team lost all their matches, and with a dry score. The Dominican Republic, Japan, Serbia and South Korea have all been stronger and more skillful. It was clear from the outset that the Africans would not qualify for anything and were very poor performers.
In private matches
Brazil have won all 6 head-to-head encounters, each time doing so with a minimum number of games. The last match took place at the 2019 World Cup and ended in a convincing win for the South Americans – (25:20, 25:17, 25:14). There is nothing to catch the Kenyans now, as they are clearly inferior in class to their future opponent and will catch up all the time.
Prediction for the match Brazil – Kenya
Most likely, in this match we will see a total destruction on the part of the Brazilians, who are 2-3 heads taller. Their greater skill and class will play a decisive role in allowing them to take a big lead in the match. We can expect a big win for the favourites, with a margin of 28 points or more.
