Costa Rica vs Venezuela prediction. On Wednesday, September 15, 2021, the group stage matches of the FIFA FIFA World Cup will take place. We would like to draw your attention to our variant of the optimal choice of a bet on the game between the national teams of Costa Rica and Venezuela.
In 2009, these teams met in the match for 9th place in the Grand Prix - Venezuela then won 3: 2.
At the 2016 World Cup, Costa Rica took second place in the group, advanced to the playoffs, where it lost 0: 4 to Portugal in the first round. But it is worth noting one point - the Costa Ricans at that championship were the only team that did not lose to the future world champion, playing 2: 2 with Argentina. Costa Rica got to the current championship thanks to the victory in the CONCACAF CHAMPIONSHIP 2021 tournament, in the final of which the Costa Ricans won 3: 2 against the USA. In the first round of the championship, Costa Rica lost to Kazakhstan 1: 6.
The Venezuelan national team did not make it to the 2016 World Cup, having failed to pass the sieve of the South American qualification. But in the qualifying tournament in 2020, the Venezuelans were more successful, finishing second in the group with rivals Argentina (1: 2 defeat), Bolivia (3: 0 win), Uruguay (5: 1) and Chile (3: 2). And the fact that in the prize playoffs the Venezuelans lost both to Brazil (0: 3) and Paraguay (2: 6) did not in any way overshadow their common joy from completing the main task - reaching the World Cup. In the first round of the championship, Venezuela won 2: 1 against Lithuania.
