Playfantasy – 1st paragraph

An international friendly between Belgium and Costa Rica is lined-up for the next 24 hours. So, let’s have a brief discussion over their predictions and betting odds.

Belgium vs Cost Rica

With just 2 days remaining for the FIFA World Cup to commence this is going to be the last friendly match where a western European team Belgium will lock horns against a Central American team Costa Rica.

Eden Hazard’s side Belgium is one of the strongest to feature in the last 4 of the tournament and they have shown their mettle by a win against Egypt in their last friendly game. Prior to the match against Egypt, they were up against the Euro Cup champions Portugal which was a much better side on the paper but they still managed to play a goalless draw against them. Their preparation looks perfect and they would be tantalizing themselves to put up a great show in the mega event.

Costa Rica have a different story though, they have been penalizing themselves of late with their recent performances. In their last six games they have administered only two wins which came against the football World Cup absentees Northern Ireland (3-0) and Scotland (1-0). Their last match was against the daunting English side which they lost 2-0 after the end of 90 minutes.

So, who has the upper hand going into the match, here are the betting odds,

Bet365: Belgium: 2/9, Draw: 5, Costa Rica: 14/1

Skybet: Belgium: 2/9, Draw: 19/4, Costa Rica: 14/1

BoyleSports: Belgium: 2/9, Draw: 9/2, Costa Rica: 12/1
