Spain vs Costa Rica preview & prediction 

Match preview

Spain and Costa Rica’s match at the Sky Stadium on Thursday will serve as the first match of Group C of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The Spaniards enter the competition fresh off a convincing 9-0 hammering of Vietnam in a recent friendly. Esther Rodriguez and Jennifer Hermoso each scored a second-half hat trick to spark the blowout.

While this was happening, Costa Rica lost to South Africa 2-0. Thembi Kgtlana and Hildah Magaia each scored a goal in the first and second halves to help the African champions win.

Spain successfully qualified for the World Cup. They won all eight of their games for a total of eight points, scoring 54 goals while giving up none, and they finished first in Group B of the qualifying rounds.

Costa Rica’s third-place finish in the 2022 CONCACAF W Championship guaranteed them a spot in Australia/New Zealand.

Zambia and Japan round up the group’s quartet of teams.

Spain vs Costa Rica prediction

Spain was among the most dominant teams during the qualification process, and they have kept up their great record going into the competition. La Rojita’s goals for this event were made clear by their 2-0 victory over the tournament favourites USA.

Back-to-Back Awarded the Ballon d’Or At the proper time, Alexia Putellas maintained her physical shape, and she will guide her country in its effort to realise its full potential. With more modest goals, Costa Rica can take encouragement from their 1–1 draw with Spain in 2015.

Spain still has a deep roster despite 15 players’ widespread boycott of the national team. We predict an easy win for the Iberians with a big margin of victory.
