Costa Rica vs Uruguay – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 07.09.2019

Costa Rica (Fifa Rank: #44) return to friendly action after penalty heartache against Mexico in the Gold Cup quarter-final. Their recent record in front of their own fans is a good one, winning their last three matches ‘to nil’. This run of games also saw them take the lead within the opening 30 minutes.
Their overall home record is formidable as they are unbeaten on home soil in 13 matches (W10, D3, L0). Yet defensively, they have only kept a clean sheet in just two (10.53%) of their last 19 international matches overall.
Uruguay (Fifa Rank: #5) are unbeaten over 90 minutes in the seven matches they have played this calendar year (W5, D2), with all five victories secured ‘to nil’. Indeed, eight of their last nine games have seen just one side, or neither side score (excluding ET).
Goals haven’t been a problem for the Uruguyans in 2019, with their three goals or more scored in four of their seven matches (57.14%) resulting in a healthy goals per game average of 2.43. What’s more, five of the seventeen goals they have scored in 2019 (35.71%) have arrived in the final 15 minutes of their matches.
Players to watch: In the last five matches in which Joel Campbell (CRC) has found the net, his side have scored at least two goals (W4, L1).
Cristhian Stuani (URU) has already scored three goals for Uruguay in 2019, and hasn’t been on the losing side when doing so.
Stat attack: A penalty has been awarded in each of Costa Rica’s last three matches.
Both teams have scored in four of the last five (80%) H2H meetings.
Despite their great recent run, Uruguay have failed to lead at half-time in their last three outings.
