Uruguay vs Costa Rica (International Friendly, 14.11.2014)

Another high profile friendly is set to take place between Uruguay and Costa Rica. In Montevideo the headlines are made not by the match itself but by the return of Luis Suarez to the squad, since you know, he is allowed to play in friendly games, but not official games with Uruguay. The hosts are out for revenge after the 3-1 win Costa Rica had in Brazil, and hope that the Suarez/Cavani duo will double the number of goals.

Costa Rica gained momentum and the respect of every country in the world during the Brazil tournament after qualifying for the next stage from the first place leaving behind such power houses as Italy, England and their current opponents, Uruguay. The hosts don’t tend to lose when playing at home, yet Los Ticos plan to end their unbeaten run of four friendly games.
Oscar Tabares has called up just two players from their domestic competition; the other players are stars who made resounding overseas names. And while everyone is focusing on Cavani and Suarez they tend to forget the players who worked the most in Brazil like Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin and Cristian Rodriguez. Costa Rica have a new coach, albeit interim, and Real Madrid’s reserve, Keylor Navas in goal.

Considering the plethora of stars in both teams, it would be a shame not to concentrate on the goalscorer market. Suarez has 2.07 odds to score anytime, Cavani 2.33 and Godin 8.00. For Costa Rica Campbell is the main choice with 4.70 odds, Bryan Ruiz with 5.30 and their leading goalscorer, Borges has 7.00 odds from 888sports to score anytime, which is the exact market we’re betting 7 units on. Both teams spoke of respect for each other, but everybody knows the gloves will be off once they hear the whistle.

If you’d like to go for more traditional betting markets then a Uruguay win has 1.60 odds, Costa Rica 5.75 and a draw has 3.80 odds. Both teams to score with bigger odds than an Uruguay win at 2.12 and both teams to score in the first half 5.40 odds.
