Switzerland vs Costa Rica Predictions

Switzerland were many peoples tips to be the dark horses in this years World Cup and two impressive displays so far have only enhanced those claims. They don’t have the superstars that other sides have, but their team ethic and the fact they are so well drilled defensively, means they will be a real challenge for anyone that comes up against them. They kept six clean sheets in qualifying and had one of the best records when it came to goals conceded. Costa Rica have looked toothless in their first two games and its hard to see how they will pose any real attacking threat against the Swiss. A win will see the European side progress through to the last 16 and we can see them doing just that. That’s why our first Switzerland vs Costa Rica predictions is for Switzerland to win to nil.

Switzerland vs Costa Rica Correct Score Prediction

The final tip is going to be a correct score tip which obviously links with the first two as above. We don’t believe the Swiss will concede, so it’s a matter of how many we think they will score. They averaged two goals a game in qualifying against teams of about the same caliber as today’s opposition, so that seems the way to go. They notched against a Brazil side who rarely concede in the first game, before putting two past Serbia last time out. Any form of victory is enough for them here, so the final Switzerland vs Costa Rica betting tips, is for Switzerland to win the game 2-0 and the odds for this are 27/4 with Sportingbet.
