Group E continues play on Friday in St Petersburgh between Brazil and Costa Rica in a must win for both teams. Brazil comes into the game as big favorites, but anything can happen in thiese games.
Brazil disapointed a lot of people only coming away with one point against Switzerland after playing to a 1-1 draw, but there is a lot more questions and they all involve Neymar.
He was fouled 11 times against Switzerland, and he was seen limping out of the stadium, which leaves a lot of doubt if he will be able to play against Costa Rica in this one.
They are the heavy favorites in this game, and even if Neymar isn’t able to go that really shouldn’t change the expectations in this game.
This Brazilian team has a lot more stars, not just Neymar and their gameplan really shouldn’t play even if they decide to rest him.
Brazil should have a lot more of the possession in this game, and they need to use that to their advantage. They can push guys forward in this game, and hopefully, that will put a lot more pressure on Costa Rica.
The earlier they score that first goal the better the chance they win. They need to try and not let Costa Rica stick around in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Costa Rica who knows they don’t have a ton of talent on their roster so they play a pretty simple style, pack as many guys in the box as possible and don’t let their back line behind them, but that doesn’t help much in attack.
In their first game against Serbia they lost 1-0, and they really didn’t even try to counter attack, so there wasn’t much offense at all.
If they are going to attack they usually just have one guy push foward and hope that somehow they can get a goal that way.
In this game it’s going to be good to have the defense back to helped defend, but one point isn’t going to be enough, so at some point they are going to have to try and attack on the counter.
They need to try and get Brazil frustrated early, and if Neymar is sitting out that would be a big boost to their chances.
