Costa Rica vs N.Ireland Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Costa Rica have been quite disappointing in the run-up to the World Cup. Four defeats in the last five games place intense pressure on manager Oscar Ramirez coming into the tie. Meanwhile, Northern Ireland have had a strong defensive run, which has helped Michael O’Neill’s team go through a three-game unbeaten run. Yet, the failure to beat Panama and the lack of World Cup action is likely to demotivate Northern Ireland ahead of this encounter. Costa Rica have also lost only once in 17 home matches. I would go with a victory for Costa Rica.

The strength of Costa Rica when it comes to the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica is a strong defensive run – even if they have kept only two clean sheets in the last seven. Meanwhile, Northern Ireland have been short on goals – only one in the last five. I would go with a clean sheet for the hosts.

Costa Rica win – 10/11

Costa Rica clean sheet – 10/11
