Costa Rica vs Panamá: Preview & Prediction
Although still in a prominent position in these qualifiers, the last appearances of Ticos in Hexogonal were not of happiness for those involved with him – Costa Rica managed to add only one point in six possible, seeing many teams come closer to him.
In this way, returning to your most competitive standard, asserting the field command tonight, will make a couple of quiet days back to your daily feelings, as it could open up inside the qualifying zone at the end of the shift. Making the game reckless and determined again on the offensive part, above all, is the key point to make your collective game in confidence evolve, again giving you more ability in the field. The dominant form in his home – entitled to a whopping 4 × 0 over the United States – serves as a stimulus.
The coach Óscar Ramírez will have his maximum strength at disposal.
The dedication to salvage a point at home against the United States in a 1 × 1 draw was enough to keep Panama within the qualifying zone for the next World Cup. If you want to close the turn seeing your confidence increase even more, showing strength against a direct competitor – above you on the leaderboard – would have a great deal of weight, regardless if the sequence of unbeaten matches increased.
Panama, with less talent, in fact, remembers the way of playing of Costa Rica in the last years – prioritizing the defensive consistency, avoiding silly expositions, being very dedicated in the field. When your front line works, your hopes for the field usually increase, but it has not been as regular as it could be, say. In games as a visitor, their biggest difficulties tend to be.
Coach Hernán Darío Gómez will have the best training for this duel.
Costa Rica vs Panamá: Direct Matches
The odd indicated will be low, I agree, but with the visiting team, most of the time, it plays only to try to be as safe as possible, as Costa Rica has not been a prime cause for the recent clashes – despite being very Strong in his home – if Costa Rica has any difficulty in breaking through the rival’s block, he may see his favoritism compromised. However, it is still worth believing that there has been an adjustment of the Ticos because of their greater experience, but DNB protection is necessary.
