Event Summary and Final Prediction About Thursday's Match 

Costa Rica and Jamaica are at the bottom of the North & Central America World Cup Qualifiers table, so we don't expect them to qualify unless the other teams have an unlucky streak. For this specific match, we believe that Costa Rica has a better chance to win considering they didn't lose both matches before this one, like their opponents Jamaica. 

We also don't think many goals will be scored based on the previous matches between the teams. On Thursday, both teams will face each other at 100% because there are no injuries on either side.
