Spain vs Costa Rica

  • 2 - 1
  • Played

Costa Rica

Spain and Costa Rica face at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Madrid, in a friendly match.
There is almost no record of head to head matches between these teams. They have met only once, in 2011, in a match that ended with a 2-2 score.

Analysis of Spain

After a disappointing World Cup, Spain has not been able to play at the same high level of previous years. In the last 8 matches after the World Cup, they have lost 4, against Holland, Germany, Slovakia and France.
Their biggest problem has been their defence. In the last 8 matches, both friendly and for the Euro 2016 qualifiers, they have suffered 7 goals. Offensively, they are doing better and scored a total of 14 goals.
In both away and home matches, more than half have ended with Over 2,5 goals. However, none of the last 3 matches have ended with Over 2 goals.
Probable Line-up: David de Gea; Dani Carvajal, Gérard Piqué, Sergio Ramos, Jordi Alba; Sergio Busquets, Cesc Fábregas, Isco; David Silva, Pedro, Álvaro Morata.  
Coach: Vicente del Bosque

Confirmed Lineup: De Gea, Bartra, Sergio Ramos, Daniel Carvajal, San José, Juan Bernat, Koke, Aleix Vidal, Fàbregas, Nolito, Paco Alcácer.
Coach: Del Bosque.

Analysis of Costa Rica

Costa Rica arrives at this match after a 1-0 defeat against Colombia: with this defeat they now register 4 consecutive matches with no wins.
Although they haven’t won in quite a while, Costa Rica has an interesting record in the last 9 matches. They have won against Nicaragua, South Korea, Oman and Guatemala and tied against Panama, Uruguay and Paraguay.   
They have scored a total of 18 goals and suffered 13 in the last 9 matches.
Probable Line-up: Keylor Navas; Cristian Gamboa, Júnior Díaz, Michael Umaña, Keyner Brown; Celso Borges, José Cubero, Deyver Vega, Bryan Ruiz; Joel Campbell, Jonathan McDonald.
Coach: Paulo Wanchope

Confirmed Lineup: K. Navas, G. González, M. Umaña, C. Gamboa, J. Díaz, R. Miller, C. Borges, D. Guzmán, J. Venegas, B. Ruiz, J. Campbell.
Coach: Ó. Ramírez.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is that there will be a few goals. Analysing Costa Rica’s last match against Colombia, we believe Spain will score more than one goal. On the other hand, the offensive quality of Costa Rica will also allow them to create problems to the Spanish defence.
