Costa Rica vs Serbia Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Costa Rica begin their World Cup campaign with a game against Serbia. Both teams are likely to see this match as a great opportunity to put themselves in a frame for qualification to the knockout stages. Costa Rica are up against Brazil and Switzerland in the remaining two group matches. Oscar Ramirez’ men have had a tough set of results in the friendlies leading up to the World Cup while Serbia have played some decent football. I would go with a surprise win for Serbia.

Apart from the three-goal haul against Northern Ireland, Costa Rica have struggled for goals. Serbia’s strong defence has managed to hold their own on a number of occasions in 2018. Both nations are likely to focus on avoiding a defeat and this may result in a tight game. I would go with under 2.5 goals in the match.

Serbia win – 17/20

Total goals under 2.5 – 1/2
