Costa Rica v USA Betting Tips Explained

We have reached the business end of the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, with the four remaining nations battling it out for glory in the States.

For USA, it is pretty much business as usual after continuing their record of having appeared at this stage in every edition of this event since its inception in 1991.

The 2-0 victory over El Salvador in the quarter-finals – thanks to goals from Omar Gonzalez and Eric Lichaj – means that the Stars and Stripes are now unbeaten in 12 matches and now have experience to call upon in the shape of Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey.

Dempsey, who is one goal away from equalling Landon Donovan’s national record, has scored in three of the last four matches that his country have found the net against Costa Rica and, with history in his sights, here would be the perfect time to achieve it.

Therefore, it is worth a punt on the evergreen forward opening the scoring at the AT&T Stadium on Sunday.

However, one of the stats not favouring the Americans is that they have lost three of their four most recent encounters with the Costa Ricans.

La Sele are appearing in the semis for the first time since 2009 after Anibal Godoy’s own-goal was enough to secure a 1-0 victory over Panama in the Last Eight and stretch their unbeaten run to seven games.

Oscar Ramirez’s men undoubtedly have the experience to perform on this stage but, given the added increase in quality, USA may just have the edge required to advance.

As a result, it is worth backing a victory in favour of the hosts with both teams finding the net.


Costa Rica v USA Stats

  • Costa Rica have won three of the last four meetings between the nations
  • The last two showdowns have ended in a 4-0 scoreline

  • USA have now gone 12 matches without tasting defeat
  • The Stars and Stripes have continued their record of appearing in the semi-finals of each edition of the Gold Cup
