FIFA World Cup 2022
Costa Rica vs Germany
Al Bayt Stadium, Qatar
In the upcoming fixture of the FIFA World Cup 2022, Costa Rica will be up against Germany at the Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar. With Germany at the bottom of the points table with just a single point, we couldn’t have expected much more upset in the ongoing World Cup. Costa Rica’s chances, on the other hand, are hanging by a thread as they have three points so far. The upcoming fixture will be a decider between the two sides; however, the qualification scenario will also depend on Japan and Spain’s fixture. The last time these two sides played against each other, Germany won 4-2.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Costa Rica - Managed a Close Win Against Japan (WLWDW)
Going in the upcoming contest, Costa Rica will be missing out Francisco Calvo due to suspension. Apart from that, Costa Rica will be playing with a 3-5-2 formation, targeting to win, with the likes of Borges, Contreras, and Campbell leading the attack. In the game against Japan, Keysher Fuller scored the only goal of the match, and that even in the 81st minute of play. Although Costa Rican manager Suarez would have preferred to start with the same squad for their final group match, center-back Francisco Calvo received a second caution of the competition against Japan and will now serve a ban. In the closing minutes of that game, 21-year-old Daniel Chacon strengthened the backline, but in a five-man backline against the Germans, Juan Pablo Vargas’ experience may be favored from the start. Jewison Bennette, a youngster from Sunderland, was benched over the weekend, but the 18-year-old might feel reasonably optimistic about fighting his way back in because neither Gerson Torres nor Anthony Contreras impressed.
Expected Opening Lineup for Costa Rica
Navas; Fuller, Duarte, Vargas, Watson, Oviedo; Torres, Borges, Tejeda, Campbell; Contreras
Germany - Managed a Draw Against Spain (DLWDL)
Going in the contest, Germany is coming off a fighting draw against Spain, in which Nicolas Fullkrug scored the equalizer in the 83rd minute of play. Jamal Musiala was spot-on with the assist, which led to the ultimate goal. For the upcoming match, the presence of Thilo Kehrer and Leon Goretzka is doubtful due to injuries. Lukas Klostermann and Nico Schlotterbeck compete to replace Thilo Kehrer on the right, a possible recall for Sane would likely cause Ilkay Gundogan to take on a deeper role, forcing Leon Goretzka to leave the club. At the most crucial stage of the contest, Germany lacks team spirit and determination due to uneven team balance.
Expected Opening Lineup for Germany
Neuer; Klostermann, Sule, Rudiger, Raum; Kimmich, Gundogan; Gnabry, Musiala, Sane; Fullkrug
