Zambia's Copper Queens will take on Costa Rica in the last round of the FIFA Women's World Cup on Monday morning. Which of these teams will emerge victorious at the end of this match?

Prediction 1: Zambia to win

It's fair to point out that Costa Rica and the Zambia Copper Queens have not only lost both of their matches so far, they've also been unable to score any goals. Both teams have not particularly enjoyed their best form in recent months, but Zambia have fared slightly better than their opponents.

On one hand, Costa Rica have lost three matches in a row; they managed just one win in their last 13 games, with two draws and 10 losses. On the other hand, the Copper Queens won four of their last 10 games, with a draw and five losses. Taking everything into account, we are leaning towards the Copper Queens for the victory.

Prediction 2: Both teams to score

This is more of a ‘both teams to concede' pick, rather than both teams to score. We've already established that both teams have not scored in this competition so far. However, they haven't had much trouble when it comes to conceding goals.

As a matter of fact, the Copper Queens have seen their defense breached 10 times in two group games, while Costa Rica conceded six goals in two matches. Furthermore, Costa Rica kept just one clean sheet in their last 20 matches, while the Copper Queens conceded in seven of their last eight games. On that note, our next Ireland vs Zambia Copper Queens prediction is that both teams will concede.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 total goals

Given how these teams have struggled to keep the goals out, it's no surprise that we expect this to be a high-scoring affair. It may interest you to know that all of Zambia's last five matches went above the 4.5 goal mark. Likewise, Costa Rica's last eight matches have seen almost three goals scored per game on average. That said, these teams should be able to score up to three goals between them.
