Colombia vs Costa Rica Betting Tips

  • Bet on a draw- 4.50 at Betway (correct as of 25 June).
  • Bet on the game to end 1-1- 8 at Betfred (correct as of 25 June).
  • Bet on both teams to score- 2.29 at Betway (correct as of 25 June).

Bet on a draw

Costa Rica opened their campaign by holding Brazil to a 0-0 draw. That result will give the North American side confidence ahead of their game against Colombia especially given that Colombia are not as strong as Brazil. 

If Costa Rica can win a point against Brazil, they will have strong confidence that they can also do well against Colombia. Colombia will find the goings tough in this game against a very hungry and competitive Costa Rican side. While Colombia may dominate possession, this game has the makings of a draw. 

Bet on the game to end 1-1 

The teams have played four times before with Colombia winning three times and Costa Rica once. While Colombia would have outplayed Costa Rica in their earlier games, the gulf in class between the two teams has decreased over recent years. Costa Rica are perfectly capable of being competitive against Colombia and may find a goal against the run of play. There is a good chance that this game will end in a 1-1 draw. It will be an open and competitive game. 

Bet on both teams to score

Both teams play open and attacking football. Costa Rica have scored in two out of their last three games. Colombia have scored in their last nine games and opened their tournament with a victory over Paraguay. 

What the coaches say? 

Colombia coach Nestor Lorenzo is looking to take things one game at a time. 

“We are taking it one game at a time and not thinking about the unbeaten record. The processes are different, comparisons are disgusting,” he said. 

“I hope we bring joy to the people, we see them excited, that motivates us. It makes us happy to know that we are transmitting something good from the pitch.”
