At one point, Costa Rica seemed out of the race for the World Cup in Qatar, but Los Ticos corrected their form at the right time, achieving six triumphs from the last seven qualifying matches. With that impressive series of results, Costa Rica finished in fourth place, so they will fight New Zealand for a ticket to Qatar, but the team warmed up well, beating Martinique 2-0 in the CONCACAF Nations League. New Zealand, meanwhile, reached this stage without any difficulty, beating Tahiti 1-0 in the semi-finals of the play-offs, and then they demonstrated their strength in the final, crushing the Solomon Islands 5-0. However, New Zealand did not leave a positive impression on their fans, as Danny Hay's team suffered a minimal 0-1 defeat by Peru and drew 0-0 without a goal with Oman in the last two friendly matches.

Costa Rica vs New Zealand Betting Tips

Costa Rica and New Zealand have met only once in their history, and that was in a friendly clash in 2007, where Los Ticos achieved a convincing 4-0 victory, but now a much closer result is expected. When we talk about the success of these national teams at the World Cup, Costa Rica is a much better team, because Los Ticos is looking for their third consecutive participation on the World Stage. Unlike Costa Rica, New Zealand is without success in this segment, as it has participated only once in the previous eight editions, which means that they lack quality and experience in the team. Overall, New Zealand has proven to be too powerful for teams from Oceania, while they have been quite weak against teams from the rest of the world, which means they will have a big mountain to climb. Given that both nations teams have quality in attack, we predict goals at both ends of the field, but we also expect Costa Rica to qualify for the World Cup.
