Switzerland VS Costa Rica, Kick off time: 11:30 pm (IST)
While all eyes will be on Brazil’s clash against Serbia, Switzerland will look to seal a place in the round of 16 when they face lowly ranked, Costa Rica. A win or a draw will be enough for the Swiss to seal a birth but a win would mean they will face World Champions Germany in the round of 16. They will, however, look to get the best result today as they will look to maintain their form going into the next round.

The Swiss will be incredibly relieved that their star men Shaqiri and Xhaka were cleared of any match ban after their celebration the last match. There have been no reported injuries and the only change may come in the form of Embolo who made a terrific impact since coming on from the bench the last match.

Costa Rica has no injury concerns and their manager will most likely make no change in their bid to leave the tournament on a high and mustering up with as many points as possible.

Switzerland: W | D | W | D | W
Costa Rica: W | L | L | L | L
Prediction: Switzerland 2 Costa Rica 1: The Swiss in their current form look too strong for Costa Rica to get points from. With Shaqiri and Xhaka in top form, the Swiss are capable of beating anyone on their day. Costa Rica, however, has nothing to lose and will play freely with no pressure. They will manage to score but I don’t think they will be able to outscore the Swiss.
