Costa Rica vs Serbia Prediction & Betting tips
Meanwhile, three years have passed since Serbia won the title at the first edition of a U20 World Cup. Nemanja Maksimovic scored the golden goal in stoppage time against Brazil. Since that day, hope in the nation for a new golden generation is great. Some of the great talents have now made the leap into the senior team and compete at the World Cup in Russia for their country. The youngsters have to prove early how good they really are. In the opening match of Serbia against Costa Rica a victory of the Europeans is a duty to maintain the chances to reach the knockout stages. However, betting on a pure victory of Serbia against Costa Rica does not have the best odds so we are looking for a more lucrative alternative. We are looking for the ninth game of this World Cup 2018 at the tip of the half-time / final stand (short HT / FT or HZ / ES). Mid-double-digit quotas will be offered if Serbia defeat Costa Rica 45 minutes behind. Whether this will succeed the young team of coach Mladen Krstajic, will show on Sunday at 14:00 clock German time.
If you want to believe defender Cristian Gamboa, then Costa Rica is perfectly prepared for Serbia’s first opponent. Since the beginning of the training camp, the first opponent has been closely analyzed, videos have been viewed, the strengths and weaknesses are filtered out. Be prepared to deliver a good show. From the outside, “Los Ticos” are not really ready for the World Cup. Coach Oscar Ramirez caused a stir at a press conference when he did not know the two world stars Eden Hazard and Harry Kane.
The results in the test games also left something to be desired. Against England, the Central Americans conceded a 0-2, against Belgium at 1: 4 was also nothing to get. Six defeats from the past eight games do not really give hope. But in a World Cup everything is basically possible and so you should not place bets flat against Costa Rica, but each game, even against Serbia, individually look. The experience in finals is also not to be underestimated and in this point have “Los Ticos” advantages.
For the first time since 2010 Serbia has again qualified for a big tournament. Whether the final round for the young troop comes too early, will show. The fact is, some stars are either way past their zenith or very young. Sergei Milinkovic-Savic, who has become one of the best midfielders of Serie A at Lazio this season, is one such example. In the national team, the 23-year-old has yet to establish itself.
Also included is a Bundesliga Legionnaire from Werder Bremen. Milos Vejlkovic, who has recently extended his contract on the Weser long term, is already a fixture in the highest German league. Nemanja Matic is the big leader. The star of Manchester United has a great responsibility and it will be interesting to see him and his young teammates compete in the World Cup finals. Overall, the Serbia are very unpredictable and the kick-off match against Costa Rica will give a first glimpse into Krstajic’s performance.
