Competition: World Cup

Market: Switzerland win

Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365

Swiss grabbed a late goal against Serbia to give them an advantage to progress while the Central Americans have yet to record any goals or points so far.

For Switzerland, although Vladimir Petković’s side were trailing Serbia 1-0 at half-time, The Swiss valiantly battled back and thanks to a late goal from Xherdan Shaqiri goal, The Reds secured a 2-1 win and now remain in pole position to secure a spot in the last 16. Carrying on their remarkable record in all competitions, Switzerland have remarkably only lost one match since June 2016 and on paper, it appears they should come through a Costa Rica side well and truly out of form with relative ease.

As for Óscar Ramírez’s Costa Rica side, coming off the back of conceding two late goals to Brazil, they are now without a win in their last five World Cup appearances and their form in the final third will be a huge cause for concern. Yet to find the net in this summers tournament, Costa Rica only recorded three shots against Brazil and will struggle to break down a Swiss side who have kept a clean sheet in five of their last eight.
