The fourth fixture in the Rio 2016 Olympics men's football will see world champions Germany take on Mexico in a Group C clash at the Fonte Nova Arena on Thursday, 4 August. It is going to be one of the high-profile matches of the event.

Mexico will be managed by Raul Gutierrez and they sealed a berth in the Rio Olympics after winning the 2015 CONCACAF Olympic Championship qualification, where they defeated Honduras in the final. They won the clash after scoring two goals and their opponents have made it to Rio.

Germany are making their first appearance in the summer Olympics since the country's unification. They are managed by Horst Hrubesch and he has several star players at his disposal. The 2014 World Cup winners will be looking to start the tournament on a brighter note.
