Can Switzerland continue their fine form against Costa Rica?

A point is enough to secure second place for Switzerland assuming Brazil defeats Serbia. Furthermore, Switzerland can still qualify if they lose and Serbia also lose. Given such favourable permutation, the Swiss might be happy to sit back and let Costa Rica do the running.

Costa Rica had their best World Cup run in 2014 when they reached the quarter-finals, but two straight defeats have led to an early exit this time around. However, they will want to pick a consolation win from this encounter and take something home for the fans.

Key facts

  • Costa Rica is yet to score a goal in this tournament.
  • Switzerland and Costa Rica meet for the first time in a major tournament.
  • I’m tipping the Central Americans to find the net in this one.

Top Tip: Both teams to score, and a narrow win for Switzerland
