By on June 28, 2014
Costa Rica will face Greece Sunday night from 09:00 pm in the unexpected game of this round. The central american side starts with the first chance in bookmakers offers, but the game will probable be very tight.
Costa Rica made the biggest surprise so far winning Group D. They qualified with Uruguay, while Italy and England are already home. Costa Rica won 3-1 against Uruguay, 1-0 against Italy and draw 0-0 with England in the last game. They conceded only one goal, from a controversial penalty. Costa Rica will keep the same formations, 5-4-1, Joel Campbell as main striker.
Greece is defensive team too and at the moment the european side has the second chance if we take a look at odds. Greece managed to win its ticket for this round after they victory against Ivory Coast, 2-1 in the last game. Samaras & Co failed to score a goal in the first two games, 0-3 against Colombia and 0-0 against Japan. Probably we’ll see a 4-5-1 formation from greeks, with Samara as the main striker again.
Costa Rica probable lineup:
Gamboa – Duarte – Gonzalez – Umana – Diaz
Ruiz – Borges – Tejeda – Bolanos
Greece probable lineup:
Torosidis – Manolas – Sokratis – Holebas
Maniatis – Karagounis
Salpingidis – Samaris – Christodoulopoulos
Prediction: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.44
As we said, there is a big chance to see a very tight game between two defensive teams, so it’s something normal to try a bet like this on maximum two goals. Both teams rely on defensive play.
The best odds for Costa Rica vs Greece: 2.50 – 3.20 – 3.20
