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.

...

45'  We pick up where we left off as the ref starts the second half. Brazil get us underway from kick-off. Two changes for Honduras as Benavidez and Salas come on for Lozano and Vargas.

...

45+2'  The ref blows the whistle to bring the first half to a close. Brazil are clearly in the driving seat as they take a comfortable three goal lead into the break. Their manager will be delighted with the professional display they've put on so far. Honduras are barely in the game, and they rarely look threatening. They have to change something to get back in the game. They'll also have to be wary of any of their players picking up a second booking. They have to be more careful in the second half.

...

45'  The fourth official indicates that there will be two minutes of added time to play in this first half.

...

44'  Brazil still have the ball. They're dominating possession with safe, no-risk passes. Far from exciting to watch, but they're not taking any chances. One goal for Honduras is enough to get the back into the game.

...

40'  Brazil are content to keep the ball among themselves as they pass it back and forth across the back line, waiting for a clearing to play a forward pass.

...

37'  Yellow card for Caio after he took both of Pereira's legs out from under him.

...

35'  Jesus gets his second to make it 3-0. It's Neymar's through ball again that sets the striker free. He beats his man and runs into the box before smashing the ball into the roof of the net.

...

34'  The Honduran players haven't made it to Brazil's box in a long time. They rarely come out of their own half with possession.

...

30'  Honduras have conceded 10 fouls, while Brazil have given away 2 so far.

...

28'  Vargas, who has already been booked, receives a final warning from the ref for another foul on Neymar. He's on thin ice.

...

26'  Goal for Gabriel Jesus to make it 2-0 to Brazil. Neymar played a great ball through to Jesus who finished calmly with the outside of his foot. He looked like he may have been slightly offside, but the goal stands.

...

25'  This time it's Vargas who picks up a yellow for a foul on - you guessed it - Neymar.

...

23'  Neymar is drawing fouls like sugar draws ants.

...

21'  Acosta finds his name being taken down in the ref's book as he picks up a yellow card for a foul on Neymar.

...

18'  Honduras are committing a lot of fouls. The players find themselves being drawn in by Neymar's quick feet and conceding unnecessary free kicks.

...

14'  The corner is wasted. The ball was whipped into the box, but found only a defender, who cleared the danger immediately.

...

13'  Corner to Brazil. Neymar took a direct shot from the set piece, but only found the wall of defenders.

...

12'  Free kick to Brazil in a great position, as Luan is brought down just outside the box.

...

9'  Brazil are already mounting huge pressure on the Honduras defence with wave after wave of attack.

...

6'  Brazil look relieved. Neymar is back in play. He seems to have decided to play through his discomfort. Maybe it wasn't as bad as it appeared initially.

...

5'  The game is underway again as Honduras kick off.

...

4'  This looks bad for Brazil. Their captain and Talisman Neymar is being stretchered off.

...

2'  Neymar is writhing on the ground in agony. That clash with Lopez looks to have seriously hurt him.

...

1'  Goal already for Brazil! Neymar takes the ball off Palacios and gets a shot off. Lopez gets a touch on it with a tackle on Neymar, but it goes in off the Brazilian anyway.

...

1'  We're off as Honduras get the game underway from the centre.
