Costa Rica vs Germany Prediction

Costa RicaCosta Rica
2 - 4
(HT 0-1)

The game between Costa Rica and Germany will be the final Group E match for both. Believe it or not, both teams have a chance to qualify further, and it is Los Ticos who are in a favourable position entering this matchup. But they are going up against a very tough challenge in Germany, a team which is in desperation mode.

We are in for a very amusing matchup, so stay with us and take a look at Costa Rica vs Germany prediction that we’ve prepared for you.

Costa Rica vs Germany – Form and Team News

Things are taking a rather interesting turn in Group E. Costa Rica had two completely opposite games. First, they were dismantled against Spain, where they lost 7:0. Then, they managed to outwit Japan and get a 1:0 victory thanks to a goal that came from Keysher Fuller in the 81st minute of the game.

The win against Japan helps Costa Rica out tremendously. But to qualify for the next round, they need some points against Germany, which is at this moment not easy to do.

On the other hand, Germany is facing their second in a row group stage elimination at the World Cup. It is something that they have never experienced before, so they are going to be giving their all to grab all three points here. Not only that, they aim to do it decisively and make a statement.

After a surprise loss to Japan (2:1), Hansi Flick’s men showed resolve and earned a point versus Spain. Things did not start well for them against La Furia Roya as they went down in the 62nd minute of the match when Alvaro Morata scored. But Die Mannschaft adjusted well as the substitutes gave them new life and new hope when Niclas Fullkrug scored an equalizer.

Germany is still very much in this World Cup. Their favourites status may have shifted, but they should get things back on track with a statement victory here.

Costa Rica vs Germany – Starting Lineups

We don’t expect many significant changes in the starting lineups of the two teams.

  • Costa Rica: (GK) Keylor Navas; (DEF) Oscar Duarte, Keysher Fuller, Daniel Chacon, Kendall Waston, Bryan Oviedo; (MID) Yeltsin Tejeda, Gerson Torres, Celso Borges, Joel Campbell (ATC) Anthony Contreras.
  • Germany: (GK) Manuel Neuer; (DEF) Thilo Kehrer, Niklas Sule, Antonio Rudiger, David Raum; (MID) Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich; (ATC) Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane, Niclas Fullkrug.

Costa Rica vs Germany – Betting Tips

Germany is a massive favourite here at odds of 1.12. Even though Los Ticos won against Japan, the team that beat Germany, we don’t see Costa Rica having the strength to stage another upset at the tournament. Plus, Germany is not going to slip two times in a row.

For that reason, we suggest going for total goals for Germany of over 3.5 at 2.35 odds. More so, you can try out Asian Lines of -2.5 on Germany at 1.92 odds as well.
