Japan vs Costa Rica Betting Odds & Predictions

It goes without saying that Japan qualified for this World Cup in a resounding way during the first stage of qualification, having score a total of 46 goals while conceding only 2 and winning 100% of their qualifying games. The Japanese ultimately qualified second in their group lagging Saudi Arabia by a mere point. Costa Rica’s road to the World Cup was far from easy. They squeezed by New Zealand 1-0 to make the final cut.

Both Japan and Costa Rica face very tough odds and competition in a Group that includes former World Cup winners Germany and Spain. So these teams will be under extreme pressure to win this game and secure the crucial 3 points synonymous with a win.

Japan has the Slight Edge

Top scorers, Takumi Minamino and Yuya Osako, could be the tie-breakers in this encounter. And Costa Rica has never beaten Japan in three encounters to date.

CXSports‘ Prediction for Japan vs Costa Rica: Japan wins by 2-1.
