Costa Rica vs. Panama: Match Preview, Where To Watch Live Concacaf Gold Cup, June 26, 2023

The Costa Rica national team will face the Panama national team in 1st round of the Concacaf Gold Cup on Monday, June 26, 2023. Live streaming of Costa Rica vs Panama, preview, lineup predictions, and how to watch the match live broadcast, can be watched in this article.

Panama and Costa Rica will face each other in the opening match of Group A of the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup on Monday (26/6). Both teams have a long history in this tournament, but who will get the big win in their first game?

Costa Rica is one of the strongest teams in the CONCACAF region, having qualified for the Gold Cup group stages in all editions since the start of the 21st century. They have also impressed in the preliminary rounds of the 2022 World Cup, with a record of seven matches without defeat in the Octagon.

However, Los Ticos’ form has recently declined drastically, with three consecutive defeats in all competitions. They are also struggling to score goals, with only one goal in the last three games. Coach Luis Fernando Suarez will hope his players can bounce back and show their quality in the Gold Cup.

Panama is also one of the dangerous teams in the CONCACAF region, currently ranked 58th in the world according to FIFA. They just reached the last four of the Concacaf Nations League, but lost to Canada and Mexico.

Even so, Panama still has a lot of experience and solidarity in their squad, with seven players who already have more than 70 international caps. Coach Thomas Christiansen will rely on his team’s collective strength and solid defense to overcome Costa Rica’s challenge.

Costa Rica vs Panama is a match that is difficult to predict, because the two teams have balanced qualities and high motivation. However, based on form and recent head-to-head record, Panama has the advantage in terms of experience and team solidarity, and has a sharper forward line than Costa Rica. They also have high confidence after beating Los Ticos twice last year.

However, Costa Rica still has several star players such as Bryan Ruiz and Joel Campbell, although they seem to lack consistency and creativity in attack. They are also prone to conceding quick goals, which Panama can take advantage of.
