Costa Rica

  • Competition: World Cup
  • Date: Wednesday, 23rd November 2022
  • Kickoff: 16:00 UK/17:00 CET
  • Venue: Al Thumama Stadium

Spain didn't have too many problems qualifying for Qatar. That will be the 12th straight appearance at the World Cup for the ex-champions. Spain are playing well as they recorded six wins and two draws in the previous eight matches. In the last match, Spain won 2-0 at home against Czech Republic. 

Spain usually have a very good defense. They allowed only three goals in the last four matches. Also, three of those four games went under 2.5 goals. 

Costa Rica didn't impress during CONCACAF zone qualifications, but they finished fourth on the table, which gave them a chance to win a ticket for Qatar via a win in a playoff game against New Zealand. 

The strongest part of Costa Rica's squad is their strong defense. They allowed only three goals in the last nine matches. Eight of those nine games went under 2.5 goals. 

This game should see two or fewer goals.

Spain Team News

Spain should be among the main candidates to finish in the top four teams at the World Cup. Still, there is a feeling that World Cup is coming probably two or three years too early for this Spanish team as their most talented players are still too young. Ansu Fati and Gavi are probably the most talented in the squad, but they are still only 19 and 18 years old.

Costa Rica Team News

Costa Rica should be the weakest team in this group, with Germany, Spain, and Japan, so it is hard to expect them to come out of this group. The best Costarican player is for sure goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Center-backs Juan Pablo Vargas and Francisco Calvo are also very good. The rest of the team is just mediocre.
