Brazil vs Costa Rica Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Brazil’s draw with Switzerland may not be the end of the world, as the five-time champions who would have been aware of Switzerland’s dogged defensive nature. The game against Costa Rica is of a different nature, as Brazil have a 100% record when it comes to games against Costa Rica. Oscar Ramirez’ team created a few good opportunities against Serbia but they may struggle to come up with the same against Brazil. Tite’s men have kept four clean sheets in the last five games and I would go with more of the same.

Neymar was a target for Switzerland’s defence in Brazil’s opening game and this may be the case once again in this encounter. Philippe Coutinho, though, has enjoyed a good run for the national team by scoring in back-to-back games and he came up with a screamer against Switzerland. I would go with Coutinho to score anytime in the match.

Brazil clean sheet – 8/15

Philippe Coutinho to score anytime – 21/20
