The record five-time champions neglected to secure a three-pointer in the competition blind raiser out of the blue since 1978. 

Such situation was not really unsurprising after Paulinho missed from short proximity only minutes previously his kindred Barcelona colleague Philippe Coutinho packed away a remarkable shocker from fresh to drive Tite's side ahead.

Brazil vs Costa Rica Prediction 

Brazil head into this as enormous top picks and anything other than a far reaching triumph for Selecao would speak to a gigantic stun for us. 

Tite's troops are in an absolute necessity win position after a goof against and goal distinction may likewise assume part in the fight for the best spot in the gathering following the specified draw with Switzerland. 

This is the reason we expect the ritzy Brazilian side to go solid from the specific first moment and attempt and pick up the preferred standpoint as ahead of schedule in the amusement as conceivable on the day. 

The HT/FT win for Brazil is paid at the 1.57 chances and it appears to be a broker wager given the conspicuous inlet in quality between the two.

The surrendered dubious equalizer against the Swiss was from a set-piece which saw Zuber push his marker to free the space and send the header directly behind Alisson. 

Other than that, Brazil were in no peril of yielding in the opening amusement and we immovably trust they will keep their net immaculate here against Costa Rica also.
