          COPA AMERICA: BRAZIL VS COSTA RICA PREVIEW, PREDICTION & BETTING PICKS

          Brazil and Costa Rica have to wait all the way until Tuesday to kick off their Copa America campaign at SoFi Stadium. Brazil are undoubtedly favourites to win this group and will look to assert their dominance early.

          Date: 25/06/2024

          Kick-off time: 09:00 (EST)

          Location: SoFi StadiumIn

          Group D Brazil and Costa Rica are joined by Colombia and Paraguay and with the uncertainty of tournament football, an early win is an important one.Brazil automatically qualified for the Copa America as a CONMEBOL nation, but they are among the most successful sides in the competition’s history. Since their debut in the competition in its first rendition in 1916, Brazil have made 38 appearances.In that time Brazil have won nine titles and have made a further 12 Finals. The most recent title for Brazil came back in 2019 where they beat Peru 3 - 1 in the Final to win the title on home soil. Brazil did make the Final in 2021 but lost 1 - 0 to Argentina.

          Costa Rica, as a CONCACAF member, had to win their spot in the Copa America. In the Play-in round Costa Rica took on Honduras and after winning 3 - 1 they booked their spot in the final tournament.This will be Costa Rica’s sixth appearance at the Copa America since their debut in the competition in 1997. Costa Rica will be looking to return to the Quarter-finals like in 2001 and 2004, rather than their Group stage exits in more recent years.Brazil and Costa Rica have met 11 times in their histories, with their first meeting coming back in the 1956 Pan American Championships. Brazil have the better record in the fixture with ten wins in comparison to Costa Rica’s one win, with there yet to be a draw in the fixture.The last five games in this fixture have seen five wins for Brazil with three of the last four games having just one side on the scoresheet.
