Conclusion:

Even as there has been a common trend under Luis Enrique that Spain seemed to have gotten stuck with teams that are low ranked, they have no issues with ball possession and that can ultimately lead them to goals. They should be able to dominate this fixture but Costa Rica will not go down without a fight.
