Quite a bright poster for the quarterfinals at the Gold Cup. The rivals have not met since July 2017 – then, at the group stage of the tournament, the game between them ended in a draw with a score of 1: 1. The Canadians cannot beat their closest rival for five meetings – four draws and a defeat. But now the Reds are in great shape and have a great chance of taking over the Costa Ricans.
Costa Rica won all three group stage matches, but the two rivals were the modest teams of Guadeloupe and Suriname. In the final round, “Los Tikos” outplayed the Jamaicans with a minimum score in a meaningless match. Costa Rica is now far from the brightest generation, but former leaders, and now veterans, are still in the ranks – we are talking about Campbell and Brian Ruiz. In addition, the national team changed its head coach before the tournament – this helped to improve the results. Remember, before the start of the final part of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, “Los Tikos” could not win for 11 matches.
Canada, on the other hand, is going through glorious times – it has a great generation, a good team and a very high-quality game. “Reds” willingly run forward, act brightly in front and are always focused on the result and a beautiful and memorable game. The national team made the exit from the group after two rounds due to victories with the same 4: 1 score over the teams of Martinique and Haiti. But in the last round, the Canadians lost to their principal rival in the person of the United States, and went to the playoffs from the second line.

Forecast for the match between Costa Rica and Canada
Bookmakers consider the chances of a counterpart to win almost equal and it is difficult to argue with them. Although, Canadians now have a brighter generation, and the game is built very well. The Costa Ricans won all three group meetings, but even with such modest opponents, defensive problems were visible. “Reds” miraculously did not score against the Americans, but now the opponent is much more vulnerable from behind.
In general, the game will most likely turn out to be very open and productive, but the individual successes of the Canadians’ attack look preferable. We offer to place a bet on IT2B (1.5) on download 1xbet app with a coefficient of 2.85.
