The second Friday of Mundial will open up at Saint Petersburg Stadium. Here two losers of the first round in the quartet E will meet each other. Brazil welcomes Costa Rica and has the opportunity to get their first win of the competition, as they take on one of the surprise packages of the 2014 World Cup. Will the teams exceed over 2,5 in total?

After scoring 41 goals in qualification, Brazil are expected to be one of the most entertaining teams in Russia. However, Tite’s side come into this one on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Switzerland, despite Philippe Coutinho's incredible strike. 

There was always the chance of meeting the expectations superbly raised by Costa Rica’s run to the quarter-finals in Brazil. Serbia only edged them thanks to a sensational free-kick by Aleksandar Kolarov but they need to discover a cutting edge that was absent in their opener.

Possible line-ups
Brazil: Alisson; Danilo, Thiago Silva, Miranda, Marcelo; Casemiro, Paulinho; Willian, Philippe Coutinho, Neymar; Gabriel Jesus.

Costa Rica: Keylor Navas, Francisco Calvo, Oscar Duarte, Johnny Acosta, Giancarlo González, Cristian Gamboa, Celso Borges, David Guzman, Bryan Ruíz, Johan Venegas, Marco Urena.

In ten previous H2H meetings with Costa Rica in all competitions, Brazil have a great record that currently stands at: nine wins and one defeat, and have a positive goal difference of plus 23 (32-9).

Brazil became author of one of multiple sensations in the first round. A win is crucial if Brazil are to avoid undue pressure against Serbia in their final game of the group. We believe Celecao’s best strikers can demonstrate their brilliant skills as well as someone from the Costa Rican side. We expect to see the first game in this group with over 2,5 in total. Thus, our betting option is over 2,5 with a good coefficient of 1.82.
