In the group stage Costa Rica didn't play against a team like Canada. They were fortunate to beat Jamaica, while Canada was looking better than USA on the pitch, but eventually got a disappointing defeat. Northerners put up an excellent performance in the previous matches, they scored eight goals, so their balanced line-up has a great chance for success in the quarter-final match.

Both opponents managed to score goals in almost every match of the group stage. Both teams have a great offensive line, which lets them to create and convert many goal opportunities. But teams also conceded in every match, but one, so teams have too many defensive mistakes. In our opinion, we will see another game with goals from both teams.
Our second bet will be on both teams to score
