Analysis & Previews

Back Ecuador @ 200/1  to win the World Cup......7/2 to win Group A......  bet with BLUESQUARE

Back Costa Rica @ 500/1  to win the World Cup......66/1 to win Group A......  bet with BLUESQUARE

Ecuador captain Ivan Hurtado (calf) and strikers Carlos Tenorio (calf) and Agustin Delgado (back) who were all taken off in the second half of their opening 2-0 win over Poland for treatment should recover in time.

Costa Rica right back Gilberto Martinez is out for the tournament after aggravating a knee injury in the 4-2 defeat by hosts Germany in the group opener. Striker Paulo Wanchope is a slight doubt after an ankle knock against Germany but likely to fit in time.

Many critics thought Ecuador will struggle without the lung-bursting 2,800 metre altitude of their capital Quito. They were unbeaten at home and won just once away in the qualifiers. But after beating Poland in their opening game, they have proved otherwise. Would be too strong for the Costa Ricans and should be backed @ just a -1/4 ball handicap. Apart from the 2 goals scored they could be considered hammered by host nation Germany. With Germany winning their 2nd match to top Group A on 6 points after a 1-0 over Poland last night, a draw for Ecuador would see them through to the last 16. But on just a -1/4 ball handicap, maybe a small bet.
