2018 FIFA World Cup Switzerland vs. Costa Rica Betting Recap

Image licensed from USA Today Sports

Switzerland was a strong favorite to beat Costa Rica at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod on Wednesday, June 27, and they didn’t record a win as the Ticos snatched a late 2-2 draw. The Red Crosses failed to cover the -1 spread, while the game went over 2.5 goals. Vladimir Petkovic’s side finished in the second place in the Group E and will face Sweden in the Round of 16.

Game Recap

Costa Rica showed intent to score an early goal as they were the only team at the World Cup who didn’t score yet, and in the 6th minute, Celso Borges leaped high to meet a lofted pass near the penalty spot, but his header rattled the left post. Only three minutes later, Daniel Colindres tried his luck with a shot from the edge of the box, but the ball crashed against the crossbar, another unlucky moment for the Ticos. Switzerland’s first serious chance produced the opening goal as Breel Embolo got to the ball and headed it over the defense to Blerim Dzemaili who met it nicely and fired it into the back of the net to make it 1-0.

Costa Rica scored the first goal at the tournament after Joel Campbell’s corner that Kendall Jamaal Waston Manley converted into a goal and helped the punters who bet on BTTS at +114 to make the profit. In the 88th minute, Josip Drmic met Denis Zakaria’s cross and sent the ball to the far post from inside the box to restore the Red Crosses’ lead. Costa Rica wanted to win a point at the World Cup and they forced a penalty in the 93rd win, which Bryan Ruiz converted with big help from the goalkeeper Yann Sommer to set the final score, 2-2, just what the Swiss and the punters who bet on a draw at +280 needed.

Switzerland’s chances to win the World Cup are +4000, which means that they are still considered as the outsiders to lift the trophy, while the Red Crosses are +450 to make it to the semi-finals. Switzerland will face Sweden in the Round of 16 and they are the slight favorites at +160.
