It will be only the second official as well as the World Cup meeting between Costa Rica and Germany. During their group stage meeting in the FIFA World Cup 2006, Germany won by 4-2.

Apart from their 7-0 defeat against Spain in their tournament opener in the ongoing World Cup, Costa Rica are in great form this year. Out of 14 games in 2022, this CONCACAF side won 10 times, drew twice and lost twice. Also, in 2022, Los Ticos ended with clean sheets in nine matches.

Germany are really struggling to perform consistently. Out of their 11 matches in 2022, the UEFA giants lost twice but won thrice and drew six games. Currently, Hansi Flick’s boys aren’t clinical enough, as they are under threat of early exit from this tournament.
