First Team to Score Prediction: Costa Rica

We don’t expect much from the Nigerian side in this fixture against Costa Rica ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Super Eagles will be without important players like Iwobi and Osimhen.

First Half Result Prediction: Draw

The second possible outcome in Costa Rica vs Nigeria is a draw at the break. The teams meet against and for the second time after more than 11 years. The previous match ended 1-0 in favour of the Costa Ricans who hosted the duel. The first half of that game ended 0-0, a result we expect in this second meeting too.
