Brazil v Costa Rica Preview
5 time World Cup champions, Brazil, take on Costa Rica this Friday in their 2nd game of the tournament, and after a disappointing draw against Switzerland in their Group E opener, Brazil desperately need a win from this clash.
Costa Rica may have lost their opening game to Serbia, but they could prove to be a tough challenge for the tournament favourites.
Without a doubt, sportsbooks offer Brazil as the firm favourites to win, and you’ll find some fantastic enhanced odds and betting offers up for grabs on this crucial game.
The South American’s may not have achieved the result they hoped for from their opening game, but Tite’s men will be determined not to lose Friday’s key game against one of the rank outsiders.
Brazil have a solid record against their Central American opponents, having played them on 10 occasions, and only losing one game way back in 1960.
The biggest issue for Brazil heading into the Costa Rica game is whether Neymar will be fit after he struggled with his ankle following continuous tackles in the Switzerland game.
Although he is back in training, Tite’s campaign hopes could take a bash if Neymar is ruled out, and more pressure will be put on Philippe Coutinho.
Brazil have lost their last 3 World Cup games, and while they have the ability to easily beat Costa Rica, Tite’s men can’t risk another loss at this stage of the competition, or they may not make it through to the next round.
Costa Rica were the only Group E team not to take any points from their opening game, and the rank outsiders will really need to up their game ahead when they take on Brazil.
Óscar Ramírez biggest concern against Brazil is up front, as Costa Rica have only managed to score 1 goal from 31 shots in their World Cup games.
Brazil should walk away with a full 3 points against Costa Rica, but given how some of the top teams have been performing so far in the tournament, we shouldn’t rule anything out.
If you think they can beat the favourites, sportsbooks offer some good odds on a Costa Rica win.
