Costa Rica vs. Canada: Gold Cup 2021 Quarterfinals. Prediction, Live Stream & Odds

Since 1989, the last time when they won the Gold Cup trophy, Costa Rica has reached the semifinals five more times. Their last win against Jamaica gave them 1st place in Group C, avoiding USA at this phase. Tonight they will face Canada that lost against USA 1-0 after eight consecutive wins. But, Even though Los Ticos won all three group games, it looks to be a difficult mission for Guzmán’s team, as their form lately is only three wins in the last 14 games (D5, L6). On the other hand, Canada has done impressive performance so far, scoring eight goals in three group games. They lost their last match on group stage against USA, where the only difference between the two teams was the goal scored by USA. Canada hasn’t been in the semifinals since 2007, and this could be their best moment to advance further. But can they do it?  

Head to head matches

History has shown that Costa Rica is more superior to Canada. In 21 games played between two sides, Costa Rica counts eight wins against four wins of Canada. Nine matches have finished in a draw. Both teams have faced each other for the last time on Gold Cup group stages in 2015 and 2017, where both games ended in a draw (0-0, 1-1). Will we have another draw tonight?

Injury updates

Both teams have no injuries reported for this match, but the only player missing tonight will be Costa Ricans’ goalkeeper Leonel Moreira. He was sent off with a red card in the match against Jamaica, and now, Los Ticos will suffer his miss. Esteban Alvarado is expected to start this match as 2nd goalkeeper. Headache for Luis Suarez (Costa Rica head coach), as he knows well how important is Leonel Moreira’s miss at this stage. But the good news is that central defenders F. Calvo and K. Waston returned from their suspensions and will be ready for tonight.

Costa Rica has done perfectly in their group by winning all three games. But tonight, they will face an opponent far stronger than Suriname or Guadeloupe. We can say the same thing for Canada, as they got two wins in their group stage against Haiti and Martinique. It is expected to be a tight match, where both teams will prefer to defend more than attack. A slight disadvantage for Costa Ricans is that they will play without their main goalkeeper. Bookmakers see both teams with the same chances to advance further. 2.75 odds for Costa Rica to win this match, and 2.70 for Canada. A possible draw has 3.00 odds and both teams to score has 2.00 odds.
