Tip Reasoning

  • Costa Rica found the net in each of their last five World Cup home qualifiers.
  • USA failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last five away qualifiers.
  • The all-time H2H meetings between these nations average 2.3 goals per-match.

A tight encounter expected in San Jose

Currently sitting on 22 points, Costa Rica are guaranteed a place in the inter-continental play-off place to reach the World Cup finals for the third consecutive time for the first time in their history.

However, there is still a very slim chance that they can seal automatic progression, that would require a sizeable win over the USA while also banking on a poor El Salvador side to beat Mexico, so that seems unrealistic at best.

Even so, Costa Rica will want to throw the kitchen sink at this one and at least do their bit, which could yield success as they come into this on the back of a home win over the already-qualified Canada.

USA should soar into the finals

It is unthinkable that the USA would fail to progress at this point, though they can eliminate all variables simply by avoiding defeat in this clash. They come into this having swept Panama aside by a 5-1 scoreline and look like a side full of goals.

With the likes of Christian Pulisic in the side – who bagged a hat-trick last time out – you know that the USA will have at least a few chances to put some goals away in this final day encounter.

We are going for both teams to score in this game, as for all of the permutations, the standings look like they are set to finish as they are. For smaller stakes, we think this could peter out into a lacklustre 1-1 draw when all is said and done.
