Costa Rica 15/4 to beat USA

Copa America Centenario hosts USA welcome Costa Rica to the Soldier Field stadium, home of NFL outfit Chicago Bears, for their second Group A game, with both sides chasing their first win of the tournament.

It is from this fixture that Coral have picked our Tuesday bet of the day, with odds of 15/4 for La Tricolor to triumph.

So, read on to find out why you should back this tasty price…

USA come in this encounter on the back of a disappointing 2-0 loss to Colombia in the opening match of the tournament, while Costa Rica managed a draw with Paraguay.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s Stars and Stripes will certainly now not relish a duel with their fellow North American nation, especially as they have been defeated their last two meetings.

Costa Rica tend to get the better over USA

The most recent was only last October, when Arsenal attacker Joel Campbell bagged the winner in a 1-0 victory, while La Tricolor were more convincing in a 3-1 triumph in a World Cup qualifier in 2013.

On top of that, the Costa Ricans have lost just twice in their last nine head-to-heads against USA, while are leading in overall meetings from 33 battles.

The likes of Campbell and other familiar names to the Premier League such as former Fulham forward Bryan Ruiz, Everton full back Bryan Oviedo, West Bromwich Albion’s Cristian Gamboa will all be present for the upcoming battle.

Costa Rica are on a decent run of four matches undefeated too, while have lost just once in nine, meaning they are in high confidence.

So, what are you waiting for? Take these terrific odds of 15/4 for a Costa Rica win to reap rewards!
