Switzerland vs Costa Rica Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Costa Rica have bowed out of the World Cup and the team will only be playing for pride in this match. The team’s crucial target will be to get their first World Cup 2018 goal after failing to score in both games against Serbia and Brazil. Switzerland entered into the competition with a strong defensive run in the qualification campaign, but they have been unable to keep a clean sheet in both of their group matches. The national team have been lucky enough to avoid a ban for crucial players like Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri. I would go with a win for Switzerland.

Even though Switzerland have been unable to keep a clean sheet in both group matches, they are in a great position to end this run when they host Costa Rica. Oscar Ramirez’ men are likely to show more ambition than in the first two games, but they may struggle to get past Switzerland’s strong defence, which does not provide much joy to the opposition. I would go with a Switzerland clean sheet.

Switzerland win – 8/11

Switzerland clean sheet – 10/11
