Spain win

This is the most likely outcome. Luis Enrique’s side are huge favourites in this game. With their superiority, they should end up winning this game against a team which is far inferior to them. 2-0 and 1-0 seem to be the most appropriate results.

Draw

This is a possible scenario. This will be the first game in this World Cup for Spain, which could therefore put pressure on them. Costa Rica will be looking to defend well and if La Roja is not on a good day, it could end in a draw. Final scores of 1-1 or 0-0 are possible.

πŸ“„ Analysis of Spain vs Costa Rica

Pre-betting Analysis

Spain finished top of their 2022 World Cup qualification group. Facing Sweden, Greece, Georgia, and Kosovo, La Roja easily qualified with six wins and one draw in eight games played.

Costa Rica are capable of the best and the worst. Capable of defeating the great nations of the North American continent and usually solid defensively, the Costa Ricans are on the other hand clumsier offensively, even against supposedly weaker nations.

Current Form

Finalists in the 2021 Nations League, Spain are in great shape, leading their group in this new edition of the Nations League after four games (two draws and two wins). The only flaw is the defeat against the French team in the final of the Nations League. Other than that, whether in friendlies or high-stakes games, this is a very solid team.

Costa Rica are confident. Keylor Navas’ side beat Canada and the USA in their final qualifier before defeating New Zealand 1-0 in the play-off final to book their spot at the 2022 World Cup.
