Previous World Cups
The first fixture that fans will see in World Cup Group E takes place at the Cosmos Arena on June the 17th, when Costa Rica take on Serbia...
Sportsbooks offer Serbia as the favourites to win this match, and if they win in their first outing, it would give them a much needed confidence boost before they face Switzerland and Brazil.
Costa Rica and Serbia have never actually played each other, and on the back of an unconvincing run, a victory for Costa Rica may be too much of an ask.
It’s going to be difficult for either team to make it through to the next stages, and even if they do, they'll most likely face World Cup favourites Germany, or Mexico in the knockout stages.
Costa Rica may have qualified early for the World Cup, but they haven’t been as successful in their recent fixtures, winning just 1 of their last 6 matches.
After a win against Scotland in March, Óscar Ramírez’s men struggled to make an impact against Tunisia, and succumbed to a 1-0 defeat.
Costa Rica caused quite the upset in the 2014 World Cup that took place in Brazil, but it’s highly unlikely they will have the same success.
If they can beat Serbia in their opening match, they’ll have a much better chance, but it’s not going to be an easy competition for Ramírez’s men.
The Costa Ricans have the experience, with some solid attacking players and a strong defence, but Serbia looks the stronger team coming into this match.
Serbia had an impressive qualifying run for the World Cup, and they’ve continued to show their strength and skill in recent pre-tournament friendlies.
Although they lost to Morocco in March, Serbia have only lost 1 of their last 5 matches, and had a great 2-0 victory against Nigeria in their last outing.
They have a rookie manager in charge, with former player Mladen Krstajic leading Serbia to the tournament, but there are some promising rising stars, and solid experienced players in the line-up.
Beating Costa Rica should be relatively straight-forward, but then having to tackle Brazil and Switzerland for a place in the knockout stages is another thing altogether.
You won’t find many sportsbooks offering amazing odds on either team progressing, but there are some great odds available on Serbia wining this match.
