Bosnia-Herzegovina Win

The recent form would suggest Bosnia may struggle in this game as the Balkan nation haven’t won a game since 2019. However, they also tend to face higher-quality opposition in Europe. Bosnia have world-class players such as Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic who can change games at a moment’s notice. Costa Rica, on the other hand, are still reliant on a 35-year old Bryan Ruiz. With Costa Rica also without a win since 2019, Keylor Navas will likely not be enough to stop the Bosnians.

Clean Sheet: Bosnia-Herzegovina

Costa Rica haven’t kept a clean sheet in 6 games (and 2 years), whilst Bosnia’s last shutout came against the Netherlands in late 2020. Bosnia’s team has played together more frequently in the past year, with 8 games played between March 2020 – present. This aids team chemistry and builds recognition of player tendencies by teammates. Costa Rica have played 3 games in the same period, whilst the team haven’t played together in 2021.

Both Teams to Score- No

Costa Rica have scored 2 goals in their last 5 games, whilst Bosnia have scored 3 in the same period. Bosnia will be encouraged by their last game, as the Balkan side came from behind to rescue a point against Finland in a 2-2 draw. Their last goal prior to this was against the Netherlands. Costa Rica’s last 2 goals came against Qatar and Haiti. Simply put, Bosnia converted chances against better teams ranked higher by FIFA.

Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Costa Rica: Preview and Team News

Bosnia-Herzegovina

Coached by Ivaylo Petev, a Bulgarian with 10+ years of managerial experience in Eastern Europe. Bosnia’s squad lacks experience, with only 5 of the 26-man squad having garnered over 30 international caps each. Captain Dzeko and Vice-Captain Pjanic both played 90 minutes against Finland 3 days ago so may not play the full game vs Costa Rica. Sead Kolasinac came off the bench vs Finland and will likely start this game.

Costa Rica

Rónald González Brenes leads the helm of the Central American team, with the Costa Rican native boasting experience coaching clubs in Costa Rica and Guatemala, as well as two stints as caretaker boss of the Costa Rica senior team. Brenes took charge permanently in 2019. The squad is one hardened with experience, with 11players from the 23-man squad boasting over 30 caps each, and 4 with over 90 caps each.
