New Zealand to Win
Costa Rica had a winning sequence in the recent outings and lost only once in the previous nine attempts. New Zealand are winless in the last two games but they also had five consecutive victories in the World Qualifiers. The Ticos were the winner in the only H2H between the team but the All Whites will be more optimistic following the neutral location at Doha where they won most of the recent games. Therefore, we back New Zealand to get into the World Cup for the first time since 2010.
