Brazil v Costa Rica preview: Samba Boys to turn on the style
Brazil might be 4/1 favourites to win the World Cup, but they’ll need to be better than they were against Switzerland to go all the way.
Their 1-1 draw against the Swiss means Tite’s team can’t afford to drop any more points in this afternoon’s game against Costa Rica.
Costa Rica may be outsiders, but they’ll be encouraged by Switzerland’s display against Brazil. They’ll look to sit deep, crowd players around Neymar and break with speed.
But they don’t have as much quality as Switzerland. And Neymar will be determined to make his mark.
Philippe Coutinho will also be full of confidence after netting against Switzerland. He’s 7/5 to get on the scoresheet again.
Marco Urena got four goals for Costa Rica in qualifying. He’s 9/2 to get a goal here.
