Competition: Costa Rica First Division
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365
Turning our attention to the first division games of Costa Rica last week, on Wednesday night, a U.C.R with the bottom of the well will receive the Santos DG fighters in what must be a competition full of goals on both sides.
Starting with the hosts, absolutely woefully unhappy last weekend and hit with a 6-1 draw at Alajuelense, it was another terrible campaign for the U.C.R. Ending the last season 10 points apart at the table and on pole position to lift the wooden spoon again this year, the Blues lost their last three clashes in the round and, unsurprisingly, continued to show some glaring back problems. Together with once again it was dismantled in what was a 4-0 blow at home against Municipal Greece earlier this month, the UCR scored 10 goals in a row and neither side in Costa Rica's top division dispatched more than their opponents. . 36 goals since the opening of the new campaign. Hit with a 3-0 loss when they faced Santos earlier this year, Wednesday should be another lively encounter in San José.
As for the visitors, although DG Santos managed to finish in the middle of the table last season, they are also in the middle of a real crisis this time. Also surprised last time and scoring six times against Jicaral, the Reds and Whites know that the midweek defeat would put them in a spiral at the table. Having failed to win any of the last 10 Premier League games, coach Johnny Chávez will be very concerned about his team's continuing problems at the back. Also with 10 goals in consecutive defeats, including a 4-3 defeat at home against Guadalupe, Santos DG has now conceded at least a trio of goals in four of their last five matches. With each of the last seven meetings between the two sides seeing more than 2.5 goals in the final whistle, we supported a similar result on Wednesday night.
Bet: More than 2.5 goals in U.C.R vs Santos DG 5/6 for Wednesday's Costa Rica Premier Division match @ Bet 365
