Predictions for Brazil vs Costa Rica in Copa America

  • Rodrygo scores at any time.
  • Brazil scores the first goal.
  • There will be more than 2.5 goals in the match.
  • Brazil wins the first half.

Rodrygo scores at any time One of the key offensive players for the Brazilian national team in this Copa America 2024 match is striker Rodrygo. He shone in the last friendly, scoring a goal, and could repeat the feat today. As an undisputed starter and wearing the number 10 shirt, he has the ability to score again, especially against Costa Rica’s defensive vulnerabilities.

Brazil scores the first goal Brazil is the clear favorite for this match despite undergoing a restructuring process under coach Dorival Jr. Therefore, Brazil promises to dominate the game and may score the first goal.

More than 2.5 goals in the match In addition to Rodrygo, the Brazilian team also boasts decisive players like Vini Jr. and Lucas Paquetá (with Endrick likely on the bench). Therefore, it’s possible that Canarinho will score more than two goals in this match.

Brazil wins the first half Considering Brazil’s favoritism, it’s highly likely that Canarinho will be effective early on, winning the first half. Given their offensive capability, a good halftime prediction is for Brazil to lead at halftime.

Historical matchups between the teams Between Copa America, World Cup, friendlies, and the now-defunct Pan American Championship, Brazil and Costa Rica have faced each other 11 times. The numbers heavily favor the Brazilian team with 10 wins against Costa Rica’s one. Canarinho has scored a total of 34 goals and conceded only 9.
