brazil Team News:

Fred is a doubt for Brazil coming into this game, but the main concern is with their star player. Neymar limped out of training with a suspected ankle problem earlier this week and is a doubt for the game, an absence that could push Phillipe Coutinho into a wider position in the attack.

costa-rica Team News:

Christian Bolanos is hoping to push his way into the starting lineup after impressing from the bench against Serbia, but apart from that Costa Rica are expected to field an identical starting eleven.

Brazil have won nine of their last ten games against Costa Rica, with their only loss coming back in 1960 in a friendly. In the World Cup the two nations have met twice before, with Brazil winning both.

brazil vs costa-rica Tip Reason:

Costa Rica’s only previous World Cup victory against South American opposition came in the 2014 tournament (3-1 vs Uruguay). They’d lost their previous three against CONMEBOL sides beforehand. Philippe Coutinho’s goal against Switzerland was his 11th for Brazil – five of those have come from outside the box. Costa Rica lost their first match against Serbia, ending a five-game unbeaten run at the World Cup finals – they haven’t lost back to back World Cup games since June 2006, when they lost four in a row. Brazil are winless in three World Cup matches (D1 L2), their worst run since June 1978, when they went four matches without a win. Against Serbia, striker Marco Ureña had just 14 touches in 67 minutes for Costa Rica, with three of those in the opposition box – his replacement, Joel Campbell, had 24 touches and four in the opposition box. Brazil conceded from the first shot on target they faced at the 2018 World Cup – from their last 13 shots on target faced at the World Cup, they have conceded 10 goals. Costa Rica have scored with just one of their last 31 shots at the World Cup. Brazil’s Neymar was fouled 10 times in their opening match against Switzerland – it was the most a player has been fouled in a World Cup match since 1998, when England striker Alan Shearer was fouled 11 times against Tunisia.
