Costa Rica vs Bermuda Match Preview
Costa Rica have justified their role of heavy favourites to top Group B on Matchday 1, as they outclassed Nicaragua in a 4-0 win in San Jose with goals from Bryan Oviedo, Celso Borges, Elias Aguilar, and Allan Cruz. They now meet Bermuda in Texas and hope to build on the success despite more troubles to turn clashes their way on the road.
Ticos have been very solid at the back and prove themselves a tough nut to crack despite struggles for consistency tainting recent records, as Gustavo Matosas’ men bagged four wins and suffered three losses in seven outing since November. They will want to build on the tally at an important time for them and we do see them doing so.
Indeed, Bermuda don’t have the same sort of firepower and while they came into the competition in good spirits with wins over Dominican Republic (1-3) and Guyana (1-0) behind them, failing to build on the streak on Matchday 1 will be far more worrying.
Hogges have thus seen Haiti complete a second-half comeback after taking the lead late in the first half, where Dante Leverock found the opener but Frantzdy Pierrot replied with a brace. We now feel Kyle Lightbourne’s men will struggle to bounce, especially with such a task looming.
We will thus back Costa Rica to secure the points and do so with confidence in a comfortable win, where Asian Handicap and Ticos to win -2.5 comes at 11/20 with bet365 and really looks like buying money for old rope.
With that in mind, we do expect a one-sided contest and Bermuda should have troubles getting themselves in real chances to score. We will thus stick with fewer goals than some would suggest and back Under 4.5 goals FT at 1/2 with bet365 as just as safe an approach on the day.
