SUR vs CRC Dream11 Prediction: Costa Rica will look to maintain their 100% record at the 2021 Gold Cup when they take on Suriname at Exploria Stadium in Orlando on Friday. The Costa Ricans got an early goal in their opening match with Guadeloupe before cruising to a comfortable 3-1 victory, while Suriname were blanked 2-0 by Jamaica.
A hard fought 1-0 victory for United States over Haiti saw them begin their CONCACAF Gold Cup journey positively, although they have plenty to work on following the win. Despite boasting over 60% possession, they could not turn that domination into goals and will look to rectify that against a vastly inferior Martinique side beating 4-1 by Canada in their opening match. Winning this match is the minimum expectation for United States, as head coach Gregg Berhalter will expect his team to show more potency going forward, especially when considering that goal difference could prove the decisive factor in terms of who ultimately finishes top of Group B.

Suriname proved in their last match that they could stick with some of the stronger sides in CONCACAF and, with a little more precision in the final third, they could have earned their first result at this competition. After a challenging year for Los Ticos, they had quite the response in their opener, and that should give them a significant confidence boost moving forward that they can recapture the magic of years past. In our SUR vs CRC Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 2-0 win for Costa Rica in this match.
