COSTA RICA v GREECE BETTING PREVIEWCosta Rica has been the biggest surprise of the tournament winning the Group of Champions which comprised Uruguay, England and Italy. Los Ticos have played stellar defense so far in the World Cup, allowing a single goal and keeping a clean sheet in their last two matches facing Italy (1:0) and England (0:0).
Costa Rica head into this game with no fresh injury concerns and no suspended players to worry about. Michael Umana and Cristian Bolanos both return to the starting line-up, meaning that Luis Suarez is going to field the best possible side against Greece.
Greece finished runners-up in Group C and sealed their progress in a dramatic manner at the expense of Ivory Coast last Tuesday when Samaras converted a last second penalty to put Greece into the knockout stage for the first time in their history. An historic result despite their campaign got off to a bad start when they were beaten 3-0 by Colombia and improved only marginally when they played out a 0-0 draw with Japan.
Greece will receive a boost with captain Kostas Katsouranis back and available for selection after serving out his suspension. Goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis faces a late fitness test, whereas Panagiotis Kone is definitely out of contention with injury.
Costa Rica are undefeated in 10 of their last 11 matches and conceded just seven goals in 10 games during CONCACAF qualifying. Much like Costa Rica, the strength of the squad is their defense. They have conceded 3 goals to Colombia in their first match and only one in their last two.
