Brazil – Costa Rica : Preview & Prediction
Brazil has disappointed us, to say the least. Considered one of the big favorites for the final consecration, the team led by Titus only took one point against Switzerland in opening (1-1). While the Nati remains a complicated nation to handle, but it is more in the game where we can reproach the Auriverdes. Dominating until the goal scored by Coutinho, Marcelo and company stopped playing then to manage their lead. An attitude that finally paid off, the Swiss having equalized at the return of the locker room. In the second match against Costa Rica, Brazil will have the pressure because it will have to take the three points for a qualification for the round of 16. A mission well within the reach of the five-time world champions, but still far from being acquired. Defeated by Serbia without losing (0-1), the South Americans should indeed cause problems to Brazilians. The first period promises to be tight.

The odds of a draw at the break are very good, so our World Cup experts are going over there.
