Portugal lost the opening match at this World Cup to a powerful African side of Zambia. However, they did play well and were the better team and should have not lost that match. They missed just the final touch because have created a lot of clear-cut chances.
Costa Rica on the other hand lost to Iran in the first round of the group stage and did not put too many problems to the Asian side, they were just restricted to some shots from outside the box.
It's a difference of quality between these two sides and Portugal should be able to win it and can cover this handicap of -1.
