Neymar's Brazil have booked a place in the final, where they will meet either Germany or Nigeria. Will this be Brazil's year to finally win Olympic gold for football? Despite a shaky start to their tournament, they've found their feet and have been building confidence over the last few games, and are favourites to pick up the gold. Honduras were barely in the game, but they still have a chance of winning the bronze medal for their country.

Neymar scored the first and last goals of the game. His first came after just 16 seconds, which is now a record in Olympic football. Gabriel Jesus also bagged himself a brace with two goals in the 26th and 35th minutes. Two defenders also got their names on the scoresheet. Marquinhos scored just before the hour mark, and Luan found the net ten minutes before time.

...

90+2'  The ref blows his whistle to end the game. 

...

90+1'  Goal! Neymar gets his second of the game by coolly placing it in the bottom left corner. Lopez dived the wrong way. 6-0 to the hosting team.

...

90'  Penalty for Brazil. Luan was brought down inside the box by Palacios.

...

87'  Honduras should've had a goal there. Elis spotted a gap and burst into the Brazilian box. Fortunately for Brazil, Luan was able to recover and made a goal saving tackle at the last second to keep the striker from getting his shot away.

...

85'  Brazil have committed 10 fouls, Honduras 21.

...

82'  Banegas takes a fiery dipping shot from distance, which was on target and Weverton had to be called into action to keep it out. Great effort from Banegas.

...

79'  It's five for Brazil. Neymar found Felipe Anderson on the right of the box. Anderson played a simple ball across the face of goal, and Luan was there on the end of it to score what was probably one of the easiest goals in his career so far.

...

77'  Change for Brazil. Renato Augusto makes way for Alcantara.

...

75'  So close from Neymar! Another direct attempt from a free kick saw the ball narrowly miss the bottom corner, finding only side netting instead.

...

74'  The ref books Garcia for clearly tugging Gabriel's jersey. Espinal also picks up a booking.

...

73'  Substitution for Honduras. Acosta makes way for Banegas.

...

72'  Honduran corner. The ball is floated in, but it falls straight to a defender who promptly clears.

...

68'  The crowd cheers as Felipe Anderson makes his way to the pitch to replace Gabriel Jesus. He won't be getting a hat-trick today.

...

67'  Honduras manage to piece together another attack. Elis clashes with Weverton, who seems to have come off worse and is now on the ground.

...

65'  Honduras build up an attack as Salas shows some tidy feet and a quick turn outside the Brazil box. He twists and turns, but nothing comes out of it.

...

64'  Neymar tries a direct shot from the free kick. He hits it over the wall and it dips to the low left corner of goal, but Lopez is able to get to it with a dive. Great free kick and a good save too.

...

62'  Another Honduran player booked. Palacios picks up a yellow for a body check on Jesus. Free kick in a good position too.

...

62'  Neymar attempted a speculative shot from range, but it went sailing high over the crossbar.

...

59'  Paz picks up a booking for a poorly timed challenge on Gabriel.

...

58'  Change for Brazil. Caio comes off the field and makes way for Garcia.

...

56'  That goal has effectively killed the game. Honduras look like they know this game is already beyond them, and Brazil are playing slow, calm, safe football.

...

51'  Goal! 4-0 to Brazil. Marquinhos receives the ball inside the box from a corner, where he is completely unmarked. He had all the time in the world to compose himself and take a shot from so close. He was never going to miss. Terrible defending from the Hondurans.

...

50'  Honduras appear a little more positive early in the second half. They look re-energised and are looking to attack with intent.

...

48'  It should've been four for Brazil. Luan charged into the box and took a shot, but it went straight to Lopez.
