World Cup 2014 – The Netherlands v Costa Rica ,The Costa Rica Conundrum ?

Today’s second World Cup 2014 Quarter Final game takes place in Salvador at 2100 BST between The Netherlands and Costa Rica where the two sides meet for the first time ever.

The World Cup nearly always has a surprise Quarter Finalist and this year’s tournament is no different with surprise Group D winners Costa Rica reaching the 2014 Quarter Final stage.

Costa Rica go into tonight’s game with a couple of defensive headaches with defenders Oscar Duarte being suspended and Roy Miller suffering a foot injury , The Netherlands are also missing a key player with midfield enforcer Nigel De Jong being absent with a groin injury.

Whilst The Netherlands will start as clear favourites for this game it is worth noting that they had a gruelling last 16 game against Mexico thus the result of this game may well depend on how quickly they have recovered from the Mexico game and how Van Gaal sets up his team , will  we see the all out attacking team we saw against Spain or a more cagey team waiting to hit opponents on the break as we saw against Chile ?

The Live Football Scores team think that the Netherlands quality will just see them through this game , a view shared by most bookies but is there any value out there for punters today ?

Thankfully the team at Coral have come up with some more enhanced World Cup betting offers for today’s game , all of which look worthy of consideration if you agree with the general bookies views.
