In a continually changing game, Spain are one of the few constants in world football. The perennial big-hitters remain one of the strongest footballing nations on the globe and their results record is a testament to that. Julen Lopetegui’s side haven’t tasted defeat in fourteen matches even though they have faced strong sides like Belgium, Italy, England and France during within that time frame.

In the months leading up to today’s free Spain vs Costa Rica preview, The Spaniards are on a five-game winning streak, keeping four clean sheets in the most recent four of those contests in wins against Italy, Liechtenstein, Albania and Israel. As is the case with every incarnation of that team, their highly technical, tactically intelligent style proves difficult for any opponent to counter.
Costa Rica head into Saturday’s Int. Friendly Game in markedly different shape. Óscar Ramírez’s men have only won one of their last five as we approach today’s Spain vs Costa Rica betting tips. That solitary victory came against a floundering USA team who sacked their manager shortly after. The South Americans surprised everyone in October by beating Russia 4-3 in a friendly and that was their first foray into Europe since 2015. That year they also travelled to the Iberian Peninsula to take on the Spaniards. The hosts won that match 2-1 thanks to goals from Paco Alcácer and Cesc Fabregas.
The standard outright results markets don’t offer much in the way of value for this week’s Spain vs Costa Rica bets, but upon analysing the statistics, we found a better way to enhance your odds on the home team winning. The Spanish defence has been rock solid in recent months, keeping clean sheets in 100% of their latest quartet of fixtures. At home they are imperious at the back, allowing the opposition to score just seven times in sixteen clashes in front of their own fans.
With David de Gea between the sticks and the likes of Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique in front of him, Julen Lopetegui has one of the strongest defensive units in the world available to him. Their performances have been key in the Spaniard’s amazing home record in general, where they have lost just four times in fifty-one internationals on home soil. We discovered that Coral’s Int. Friendly Games football betting odds for our opening selection were priced the most competitively when compared to their rivals.
Real Madrid schemer Isco has arguably developed into the Spanish team’s most important attacking player over the past year. His record of four goals in his last four appearances on Spanish ground for his national team makes him a sound inclusion in any Spain vs Costa Rica predictions we make. Isco has seven goals for his country in total.
The intelligent playmaker, famed for his close control and dribbling skills has also netted twice in as many games in his recent La Liga appearances, meaning that he is in red-hot form as we approach the weekend’s duel at the Estadio La Rosaleda. With Isco returning to the stadium where he forged his reputation for Malaga, he will be keen to put on a show for the supporters there. Following extensive research, we discovered that the odds supplied by William Hill are the most lucrative way to take advantage of the second part of our international football predictions today.
