Group E enters the last fixture of the pool stages for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 on December 2, 2022, at 12:30 a.m. IST. Costa Rica and Germany will face each other for a possible spot in the knockout round.
However, the fixture between the two at the FIFA World Cup 2022 is more complicated than one imagines.

Costa Rica is in the sweet 3rd spot with 3 points to its name, while Germany, which has yet to land a win in the tournament, is in the 4th spot with just one point.
Germany will enter the game with a higher winning percentage of 89% compared to Costa Rica’s 3%. There is an 8% possibility that a drawn result will be given. Germany only qualifies if it defeats Costa Rica with a huge goal difference. In addition, Spain must triumph over Japan in their matchup on the same date. The odds at top FIFA betting sites will be much in the favor of Germany, as they have won the World Cup title 4 times.
A better goal difference will come into play if Japan and Spain draw their match. Germany has had a disappointing trip so far, having lost its opener to Japan with a final tally of 1-2.
Costa Rica looks well-prepared despite losing 0-7 against Spain. Suarez’s side was able to land a win against Japan when Fuller took a successful shot in the 81st minute. The formation of 3-4-2-1 could have worked, but additional assistance to the striker will have to be added while playing against Germany.
Germany, on the other hand, will push Niclas for an early goal. Niclas equalized the board against Spain, which was on the field in a 4-3-3 formation. Germany’s 4-2-3-1 may come in handy if the side lands a goal first.
Predictions favor Germany, with a score of 2-0 in its favor.
