Spain v Costa Rica Match Preview
Under 2.5 Goals
We kick off the bet builder on this game with a look at the goals market. Costa Rica are outsiders here, but will be defending for their lives, and what makes this pick really appealing is the fact that Spain have no top end striker in the tournament with them.
It is expected that Alvaro Morata will lead the line, a player who doesn’t have a great record, and even if you fancy Spain to win this one, their potential to be low scoring in the tournament is there for all to see.
Personally, I’m not comfortable backing Spain to win, but whether they do or not, I can’t see them dominating this and scoring plenty, so the way to go here is with goals, and under 2.5 is my first pick in the bet builder.
Under 9.5 Corners
I’m not convinced that Spain will have too much to deal with from Costa Rica, and expect the Spanish to have the ball a lot, and slowly try to build something and break down the Costa Rican defence.
All of Spain’s attacking talent is in the middle of the park, I expect their play to come from there, while I also think they’ll be patient in their approach. With that in mind, I’m going with under 9.5 corners as my second pick, for a game that should see a lot of the ball in the middle of the park.
Kendall Watson to receive a card
A bet on Kendall Watson to receive a card is the final tip in this one. The veteran centre back currently plays in the Costa Rican top flight, though the Spanish attacking players that he faces here will be far quicker than anything he’s used to.
This season, he’s played 17 games, receiving 10 yellow cards and three red cards. He was also in double figures for yellow cards last season, so him to get a booking is how we round off the bet builder.
