Costa Rica vs Jamaica – March 26, 2013 CONCACAF Qualifiers


The Costa Rica vs Jamaica CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying match will be this Tuesday, March 26, 2013 (10:00 PM EDT) at the Estadio Nacional in San Jose. Costa Rica has had a poor start to the qualifiers, where after 2 games they tied one and lost one. On the other hand, Jamaica has been a fair competitor with 2 ties in 2 games.

Costa Rica is urged for quick points in the qualifiers, and they have a good opportunity for a win when they host Jamaica this Tuesday. This is a team that is a favorite to fight for the 3rd spot for a direct pass into Brazil 2014. However, after 2 games, the ‘ticos’ have suffered in creating scoring opportunities. A win against Jamaica will put them in a comfortable position in the hexagonal. Unfortunately, anything else will jeopardize their qualification.

Jamaica had a historic tie at the Estadio Azteca last month; last week they could not defeat Panama at home. The Reggae Boyz have an interesting team with a good offense, however, they cannot waist points like they did against Panama. When they visit Costa Rica they will be forced to play for a win because anything else also jeopardizes their World Cup plans.

Costa Rica vs Jamaica Prediction

Costa Rica is on a loose chord; another tie or loss puts their qualification in doubt. There is no room for mistakes and the 3 points at home will be obligatory to be alive in this. Jamaica has demonstrated some quality soccer, especially when they tied in Mexico. Could they force another good result in another away stadium? The Costa Rica vs Jamaica match will end 2-1 in favor of the home team. This will be Costa Rica’s first home match, and they will make sure to get all 3 points off Jamaica.
