Saturday's men's football final is set in Rio. Host nation Brazil will take on Germany, and hope to gain a measure of revenge for the 7-1 thrashing they suffered on home soil, in the Last Four of the 2014 World Cup.

The Brazilians advanced to the title match here by crushing Honduras 6-0, while the Germans ousted Nigeria 2-0. That means the Hondurans and Nigerians will battle for bronze in Belo Horizonte.

On the women's side, Sweden will face Germany in the final on Friday. The bronze medal match in Sao Paulo pits the hosts Brazil versus Canada.

Looking at basketball, Friday's semi-finals are set on the men's side, with the two-time defending champions from the USA going up against Spain, while Australia clash with Serbia.

The USA are also the titleholders in the women's bracket, and will be challenged by France in tonight's semi-finals, while the other half of the draw features Spain meeting Serbia.
