One of the surprises of the first week of action was that Switzerland managed to earn a 1-1 draw with Brazil last week. That’s left the second ranked team in the world behind Serbia who managed to escape with a 1-0 win over Costa Rica last week.

What’s more, Neymar, Brazil’s best player left practice on Tuesday with ankle soreness. He’s been cleared to start this game, but it remains to be seen how effective he’ll be.

The Brazilians managed to get 20 shots towards the net, but only four hit the target against the Swiss. Phillippe Coutinho open the scoring for the favorites in the 20th minute, but the Swiss fought back to tie on a goal by Steven Zuber.

Costa Rica may be able to offer similar levels of frustration at the Brazilians with Keylor Navas in nets. The Real Madrid keeper is one of the best in the world and should be able to rise to the occasion. It took a brilliant freekick by Aleksandar Kolarov to beat him in the last game.

The teams were otherwise rather even with both teams controlling the ball 50% of the time and putting ten shots towards the goal and three hitting the target.

Bovada Sportsbook currently have the Brazil listed as -475 ML Favorites versus the Costa Rica, at +1500 ML Undergod while the Draw is at +500.

The Bottom Line:
The Bottom Line: Brazil is -475 favorites and Costa Rica +1500 underdogs. The draw is at +500. Some surprising results have already come our way in this tournament, including Argentina’s shocking loss yesterday. I think Brazil won’t fall to the same fate, but Costa Rica has enough to earn a tie. The Pick Draw 1-1.
