Brazil are on the brink of elimination after second goalless draw at the Olympics

Brazil have played 180 minutes at the Rio Olympics so far and still haven't scored a goal. As a result, the host nation is in real danger of spectacularly missing out on the quarterfinals.

Neymar & Co. were stymied by Iraq on Sunday, three days after starting with a goalless draw against South Africa. Again, that's Iraq and South Africa.

Brazil put up 40 total shots over the two games, and still couldn't score.

Brazil had 77 percent of the possession against Iraq on Sunday, and still couldn't score.

Brazil were up a man for most of the second half against South Africa, and still couldn't score.

Brazil called in Neymar for these Olympics, to play against Under-23 teams, and still haven't scored.

The host nation remain favorites to go through to the quarterfinals but now they're facing some serious pressure. They sit on two points and trail Denmark by two going into their final match Wednesday. Only a win against the group leaders will guarantee them a spot in the knockout stage, while a draw could be enough only if Iraq and South Africa settle for a lower-scoring draw. If both games end in 0-0 ties, a drawing of lots would determine who goes through between Brazil and Iraq, as both teams would have three points and no goals scored.

A loss, meanwhile, would seal the Selecao's exit and probably cause a nationwide meltdown. Given that Brazil prioritized winning their first Olympic gold over the Copa America Centenario this summer, a group-stage exit might be more embarrassing than the infamous 1-7 against Germany two years ago. Because at least Brazil was in a semifinal then, and they didn't have Neymar.

Not making it out of a group with Iraq, South Africa and Denmark, with Neymar, in Brazil, at your home Olympics? Yeah, that might be worse.
