Costa Rica vs Germany Predictions & Betting Tips (World Cup)

 by Ioannis |

Costa Rica take on Germany at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. In what has been a thrilling group to follow, all four teams still have a chance to qualify for the Round of 16. Costa Rica claimed a shock win against Japan on Sunday after losing their first game to Spain 7-0. They can reach the last 16 by defeating Germany and win the group if Spain draw with Japan. A draw for Luis Fernando Suarez’s side would also guarantee a spot in the next phase if Spain overcome Japan, but if the current group leaders are beaten then goal difference comes into play. With regards to Germany, Niclas Fullkrug’s strike late on could prove pivotal for their chances of making it through. They must now pick up three points to stay in contention. Victory over Costa Rica coupled with a win for Spain against Japan will see them qualify. A draw between Luis Enrique’s side and the Samurai Blue, or a win for Japan, would take the equation to goal difference.

Form Analysis

What an important win could that prove to be for Costa Rica. Keysher Fuller’s glorious strike cut down Japan’s hopes of qualification with a game to spare, putting the Central American side right into contention. Costa Rica might have been second best in the first half of their encounter, yet they managed to expertly stop the majority of Japanese attacks, then finding the perfect moment to strike when the Samurai Blue were looking for the winner. They have now won five of their last seven games, losing just two in fifteen. They have also faced Germany once in 2006, losing that game 4-2. As far as Hansi Flick’s side is concerned, things looked precarious after Alvaro Morata broke the deadlock after coming on in the competition of the hour mark. However, Germany fought back, and after some missed chances by Sane and Musiala, broke the deadlock, courtesy of a clinical finish by Fullkrug. While the Germans are still in it with a shout, their form was not the best possible before entering the tournament, and they starkly confirmed this in their opening two games. They have now won just two of their last ten international games, astoundingly failing to score more than once in eight of those.

Squad analysis

For Costa Rica, fans in Santiago were most likely waking up on Sunday morning to Keysher Fuller’s heroics, which kept their World Cup dream very much alive. Besides his match winning moment and the quality of players such as winger Benette, experience was also a key reason why Costa Rica managed to hold their own against an in form Japan side, with stalwart Joel Campbell in particular showcasing this. Niclas Fullkrug was the man of the hour for Germany, after salvaging his side’s qualification chances and giving them an invaluable lifeline late on. The German forward’s journey to the elite is even more incredible, having played in the Bundesliga 2. division last year yet topping the Bundesliga charts this season and making his international debut just days before the World Cup. Jamal Musiala was also impressive throughout, being the key orchestrator of German attacks, and the future ahead of him looks bright.

Our Costa Rica vs Germany prediction

In what should be a hugely entertaining last round in Group E, both teams can still qualify, which will make them push for a qualification defining win. Germany are fair favourites and can claim a victory to rescue their World Cup hopes. However, they have been unreliable at the back of late, and backing the Over 3.5 goals line is the best way into this encounter, especially taking into account that goal difference scenarios can enter the permutations at various stages of the game.

Other interesting tips

Germany -1 First Half Asian Handicap - odds : 1.79 at William Hill

Despite their win against Japan, Costa Rica were shocking in their opener against Spain, proving their inability to respond when continuously pressed by a high quality attacking line. Spain were 3-0 up at the break and backing Germany to be more than a goal up by half time is a value side bet.

Niklas Fullkrug to score anytime - odds : 1.8 at William Hill

The presence of an old school prolific centre forward might just be what Germany need, if one goes back to the golden days of Miroslav Klose. Fullkrug seems to embody that role, while he has scored Germany’s only tournament goal in open play. Backing him to score once again is a great alternative pick.
