HT/FT, 1/1

Argentina vs Costa Rica prediction

International football will continue for a few more days this week before club football returns at the weekend, and many national teams will be in action. Argentina like many other South and North American countries are preparing for the 2024 Copa America, and this friendly provides Luis Scaloni to work on the chemistry of his team and also test those on the fringes of his team.

Costa Rica has not done a lot in terms of international football in the last few years, but they have a chance to prove themselves against the South American and World Champions.

For Argentina, they will miss the excellent Lionel Messi who is out with injury.The Inter Miami star was called up, but he picked up a muscle injury which effectively rules him out of the match. However, Scaloni and his charges have more than enough in his arsenal to record a second straight win in March.

The World Champions were dominant in their last outing against El Salvador winning with a scoreline of 3-0, effectively winning both halves. We expect the same outcome here, and we are backing the Albiceleste to win both the first and second halves of this encounter as our main Argentina vs Costa Rica prediction.

A we head into the International week, you can maximize your chances of winning with our extensive friendly matches betting tips.

Main tip: HT/FT, Argentina/Argentina

Our Argentina vs Costa Rica predictions

According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:

Prediction 1: HT/FT, Argentina/Argentina

On Paper, this match gives the outlook of a David vs Goliath bout, but the difference is that Costa Rica having any form of positive outcome from this match is a long shot. Argentina and South American and World Champions, and they have several world class players. The Argentines have been really good over the last few years and they are most likely to brush aside the Costa Ricans even without Messi. Argentina won both halves in their last match against El Salvador and it should be no different with Costa Rica. Therefore, we recommend that you bet on Argentina to win both the first and the second halves of this encounter.

Prediction 2: Over 2.5 Goals

Lionel Scaloni’s charges are not only playing well, they are also very clinical in front of goal. In their last match, they put three past El Salvador and going up against a Costa Rican team that has conceded an average of 2.2 goals per game considering their last five matches, the Over 2.5 market seems a plausible choice. In addition, the attackers within the Argentina ranks are quite good and they will be looking to lock in their place in the squad ahead of the Copa America. Therefore, we should expect a goal fest. Thus, we predict that there will be no less than three total goals scored in this match.

Prediction 3: Goal in Both Halves

Another sure fire bet option is the Goal in Both Halves market. The match up between these two teams have goals written on it, and it is surely going to rain goals. Argentina were rampant in their last match scoring three goals across two halves, and that is a testament to their attacking threat. Similarly, there have been goals scored in each of the last five Costa Rica matches and we are quite confident that the match against Argentina will be the sixth match featuring Costa Rica with goals in both halves. Therefore, we suggest that you bet on at least one goal to be scored in each half of the match as our final Argentina vs Costa Rica prediction.
