BTTS tips: Choose Costa Rica for 21/1 weekend acca

It's a busy weekend on the international front with both the Women's World Cup, Copa America and CONCACAF Gold Cup at the quarter-final stage, and the group phase of the African Cup of Nations close to completion.

We're focusing on the first three tournaments for our both teams to score tips today which were just one goal shy of a successful 16/1 four-fold acca in our previous column.

We have chosen four matches for our BTTS tips today which combined as a football acca come to over 21/1 and also qualify for a 7.5% bonus thanks to the BetStars acca bonus.

And if you like the look of our BTTS tips, combining all our BTTS predictions into a four-fold will pay over 21/1.

Both teams to score predictions: June 29-30

Colombia were the only team to reach the Copa America quarter-finals with a perfect record and did not concede a goal in their three matches, making it five successive games since their defence was breached.

Chile went into the tournament on a poor run of form but qualified for the last eight with a game to spare thanks to a 2-1 win against Ecuador having crushed a youthful Japan side 4-0 in their opener.

They were probably the better side in a 1-0 defeat by Uruguay despite the absence of rested midfielder Arturo Vidal and that result ended a run of eight matches in which they scored.

Six of their last eight matches have seen goals at both ends so Saturday's match looks an ideal way to start our BTTS tips.

Germany have won all four matches at the Women's World Cup without conceding and their defence has been breached just three times in eight games this year.

One of those goals came in a 2-1 friendly win against Sweden in April, a 72nd-minute penalty to reduce the arrears.

Sweden enjoyed 2-0 and 5-1 wins against Chile and Thailand, and we should not be too concerned by the 2-0 defeat against the USA as coach Peter Gerhardsson made seven changes having already qualified for the last eight.

Haiti topped their Gold Cup group for the first time with three wins out of three which included a shock 2-1 victory against Costa Rica.

They scored two goals in every game during the group phase, but the 2-0 win against Nicaragua in their second game was their only clean sheet in seven matches this year.

Canada smashed 11 goals past Martinique and Cuba, either side of a 3-1 defeat by tournament favourites Mexico, so both teams to score at 11/10 makes the cut as the third of our BTTS tips.

Mexico vs Costa Rica (Sun, 02:30)

Pre-tournament favourites Mexico may have qualified for the knockout stage by winning all three of their group games to make it seven wins on the bounce but their defence is definitely suspect.

Six of those victories would have paid out as BTTS predictions, with Paraguay and Ecuador both scoring twice just like Martinique in their final group game of the Gold Cup.

Last October, an experimental Mexico team ran out 3-2 winners against Costa Rica, who have scored and conceded in their last two Gold Cup games - ideal for the last of our goals galore tips.
