Costa Rica have slight chances to advance for the playoffs before this match. Costa Rica drew their first match at the tournament against Paraguay, 0-0 and failed to show any resistance to the hosts USA, 0-4. Such results put the team on the last place in the group and they need to thrash today’s opponents by five goals and wait for Paraguay to defeat USA in other match.
Colombia and Costa Rica faced one another five times and all of these matches ended with wins of Colombia with 10-2 aggregate score. Considering the level of football and results at the tournaments, there is a big chance for this series to extend with another win of the South Americans.
Prediction for the match: Colombia to win.
