Costa Rica takes on the visitors Serbia at “Cosmos Arena” in the gameweek one of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group stage. The match will be played in Samara on Sunday, June 17th.
Many football fans familiarized with Costa Rica’s A-team after its successful performance on the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil when the side had been knocked out by Netherlands at the quarter-final stage. And at this moment it is quite difficult to predict the team’s results on the upcoming Mundial as “Los Ticos” have no high-class players in the squad, sill, they are ruled by the terrific head-coach who is able to make miracles happen. In the previous tackles Costa Rica has smashed Northern Ireland 3:0 as well as collected two draws against Honduras and Mexico with the same 1:1 scoreline.
Meanwhile, Serbia doesn’t appear on the World Cups that often, however, the side is a constant participant of the European championships. It is not so easy to foresee how one of the sleepers of the forthcoming tournament will show off, but their roster allows “Орлови” to promote from the group and compete on equal with many notable rivals. In the latest battles Serbia has thrashed Bolivia 5:1, lost to Chile 0:1 and broke Nigeria 2:0.
Costa Rica has never faced Serbia in its history. The football fans are likely to see and equal fight, nevertheless, “Орлови” have a bit stronger squad with a wider experience, thus, “Los Ticos” will probably fail the Sunday clash.
Prediction for the match: Serbia to win.
