Peru v Costa Rica
Wednesday 00:30 (Watch on Betfair Live)
There were only a couple of goals in Spain last night, but Almeria and Deportivo La Coruna split them evenly to give us a winning start to the week. The hosts might've thought they'd won it when they opened the scoring with 75 minutes already gone, but Depor's 84th-minute equaliser meant it was us that went home happy.
Not that we were at home for long. Today we're in Peru for the Incas' international friendly with Costa Rica. Since the start of last month, the visitors have played three friendlies that have finished 2-3, 1-3 and 3-2. Those results have got us excited for another high scorer tonight.
Since losing a World Cup warm-up 0-2 to England at Elland Road, 5/6 of Costa Rica's friendlies have delivered Over 2.5 Goals, as they have conceded at least twice in all six games. At the other end, the Ticos have found the net themselves in 4/6.
Since they got back from Russia 2018, Peru have served up Over 2.5 Goals in 3/5 friendlies. The Incas have scored in 4/5 - including losing trips to the Netherlands and Germany - and conceded in 4/5. We think these two have got enough in the tank to justify an even-money wager on Over 2.5 Goals in Arequipa tonight.
