Belgium vs Costa Rica Preview

Belgium vs Costa Rica

Competition – International Friendly

Stadium – King Baudouin Stadium

Date: 11th June 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Belgium take on Costa Rica who are coming into this game having lost their last game 2-0 to England and it will be interesting to see how this game turns out.

The Central Americans have played every team in Belgium’s group and the Belgians will be hoping they can learn a thing or two in this game.

All the teams in group G have won against Costa Rica so far and Roberto Martinez’s men should complete the victories here.

The Belgians drew against Portugal in their first warm up game before beating Egypt 3-0 last time out.

The Belgians have an abundance of attacking talent and their defence is also solid.

Belgium have kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 home games and they have not conceded a goal in their last four.

They conceded just twice at home in the qualifiers, so it looks like Costa Rica are in for a tough night.

Costa Rica have lost four of their last five away games without scoring a goal and they lost without scoring against Tunisia and England.

Belgium claimed a 1-0 win over Costa Rica 16 years ago and that clash is their most recent encounter.
