Brazil vs Costa Rica World Cup Prediction 22nd June 2018 – 1.00 p.m

Brazil couldn’t find their rhythm in their opening Group E game at the 2018 World Cup as they were held to 1-1 draw by Switzerland. That snapped a great run of wins that they were on, but they are likely to get back to winning ways in this one as they face weaker opposition in the form of Costa Rica. The Central Americans are well out of form and they suffered a 1-0 loss against Serbia in their opening fixture.

Who will win Brazil vs Costa Rica?

It is hard to see anything but a win for Brazil occurring in this Group E fixture. This was always going to be the easiest game of the group that the Selecao were going to be faced with. Their opponents are not carrying any form and the Brazilians will be better for having got any nerves out of their system in that opening tussle with Switzerland. It should be three points for the South Americans.

Better to come from Brazil

As with many of the major players at the 2018 World Cup, Brazil failed to get off to an impressive start. They managed just the 1-1 draw in their opener against Switzerland and really there was none of the great fluency and flair that was expected from the South Americans in the game. Even Neymar let the whole thing down by being incredibly selfish and looking to showboat more than anything. Philippe Coutinho did produce a moment of magic though in giving Brazil the lead. While it was a surprise that they didn’t win there has been no damage done to their chances of winning the tournament and they will likely respond in a positive fashion here.

The goal that Brazil conceded in the draw with Switzerland is the only goal that they have shipped in their last six games so they are likely to win to nil which is an 8/13 odds option* (Betting Odds were taken from June 19th, 2018 at 7:54 p.m.) in Brazil vs Costa Rica predictions. Neymar and Gabriel Jesus are the joint 13/5 first goalscorer favourites for the game and there has to be a lot better to come from Brazil than what they produced against Switzerland where they looked pretty flat at times. Brazil have won four of their last five matches though and have won ten of their last twelve World Cup group stage games. In the bet365 correct score market a solid Brazil 2-0 option is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 19th, 2018 at 7:54 p.m.).

Costa Rica ready to pack their bags

There was a 1-0 loss that the Central Americans suffered in their opening game against Serbia which on paper was actually their easiest game of the campaign. So already facing a deficit in the group points, they are likely to not get anything out of this game. Costa Rica are on a three-match losing streak having conceded seven goals in that sequence and they have scored in just two of their last five games as well. They aren’t likely to threaten the Brazilian goal very often in this one in a game which they technically need to win. It is hard to see them doing that and an obvious Both Teams Not To Score option is at 4/9 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 19th, 2018 at 7:54 p.m.) which is not fantastic odds to look at but still, it’s a decent option if you are building an acca for the day’s action. Against Serbia, Costa Rica produced two shots on target in the first three minutes, they did not manage their third until deep into stoppage time.

Brazil vs Costa Rica Prediction

There doesn’t appear to be any hint of an upset happening here as it would be spectacular if it happened. Brazil will have learned from that slow start and they will get much more space in this one than they did against Switzerland. Our Brazil v Costa Rica predictions can’t see past a Brazil/Brazil half-time/ full-time option.
