Costa Rica News and Form – Los Ticos to pick up all three points in Frisco?

Costa Rica were superb in their opener, thumping Nicaragua 4-0 at the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose. The familiar face of Bryan Oviedo, who is still at Sunderland, got Los Ticos up and running early on, with Celso Borges, Elias Aguilar and Allan Cruz getting the others.

It’s been a torrid past year for the Costa Ricans, who have lost a staggering 11 of their last 16 fixtures across all competitions. However, their results have improved of late, winning four of their last seven.

In USA two years ago, Costa Rica won Group A ahead of Canada, Honduras and French Guiana, picking up two wins and a draw along the way. After beating Panama 1-0 in Philadelphia in the last eight, they then lost 2-0 to tournament hosts USA in Arlington in the semi-final. How far can they go this time around?

Gustavo Matosas’ men are the strong favourites in this clash, and a win on Friday will put them through to the knockout stages.

Costa Rica v Bermuda Head to Head

This will be the first ever Gold Cup matchup between the two nations. However, they did square off in a Pan American Games fixture way back in July 1979, which Costa Rica won 3-1.

 

Key-Facts – Costa Rica v Bermuda

  • Costa Rica kicked off their tournament with a big 4-0 win
  • This is Bermuda’s first ever Gold Cup campaign
  • The Bermudans had won two in a row before losing to Haiti

 

Bermuda News and Form – Bermudans to struggle in Texas?

Bermuda are Gold Cup debutants, but they gave a good account of themselves against Haiti in Costa Rica in their opening game of the competition. Dante Leverock, who plies his trade in Ireland for Sligo Rovers, put Kyle Lightbourne’s boys 1-0 up just before the break.

Unfortunately for the Gombey Warriors, Haiti turned the game on its head in the second half thanks to two goals by Frantzdy Pierrot. Nevertheless, it was a brave and positive performance by the Bermudans in Costa Rica.

Bermuda warmed up for this tournament with back-to-back wins over Dominican Republic and Guyana. Although the loss to Haiti was a setback, Lightbourne and his troops would have learned an awful lot. Can the Gombey Warriors cause an almighty Gold Cup upset on Friday?

Costa Rica v Bermuda Predictions

Costa Rica win: The Costa Ricans have vast Gold Cup experience, which should see them over the line in this one. Bermuda showed positive signs in their first game a few days back, but this will be a far tougher assignment for Lightbourne’s team. Because of that, have a punt on Costa Rica to win -2 at 2/5. I also fancy Los Ticos to win to nil (3/10).
