Match Winner – Handicap (-2.5) for Germany
Die Mannschaft will be beyond desperate for their first win of the tournament which will be the most decisive one for the European giants as they can’t risk another World Cup fail. With only two victories in nine games in 2022, Flick’s team hasn’t exactly wowed anyone with their performances so far. Looking ahead to the game against Costa Rica, Germany will be seeking three points against Luis Fernando Suárez’s side to live their Mundial revival. DFB will advance to the knockout rounds only with a victory, however, if the match between Spain and Japan ends up in a tie, Germany must need to win by two goals or more to have a bigger goal difference over the East Asian side.
Anytime Goalscorer – Serge Gnabry
The shortest odds stand for Serge Gnabry to find the back of the net for Germany. The Bayern Munich star has arrived at the World Cup in magnificent form, scoring six and assisting two in his last six Bundesliga matches.
Costa Rica vs Germany: Key Numbers & Markets
Preliminary review and match prediction for Costa Rica vs Germany
The Germans faced a shocking 2 – 1 defeat to Japan in their opening World Cup match. A draw against Spain, meanwhile, has saved Flick’s side from getting knocked out in the group stage for the second consecutive tournament. This means, that Thursday’s clash with Costa Rica will be a ride or die for the European giants as a failure could cost them a ticket back to Germany earlier than expected.
In their first two matches, the Bundes team managed to score twice and conceded three, Costa Rica, meanwhile, managed to find the back of the net once only with a total of seven conceded goals and a clean sheet.
Despite their beggarly recent form with two victories out of eight games, Germany is heading to Al Bayt Stadium as favourites.

The tournament opener felt like a nightmare for Costa Rica as they struggled with an embarrassing seven-goal defeat to Spain. Meanwhile, the taste of the victory over Japan on the second game day of the group stages quite saved Luis Fernando Suarez’s World Cup dream. Therefore, Los Ticos know that victory over Germany will guarantee their spot in the round of 16. Nevertheless, the South Americans have had only one shot on target all tournament, which was enough to secure their three points against Hajime Moriyasu’s side.
