    could

    1-We could win the match tomorrow.
    2-That could happen.

    Do these sentences imply that the speaker believes that the event he is talking about is unlikely?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: could

    Is this a conversation between two people?

    If so, the second speaker's tone of voice would determine his opinion of the likelihood of the win.

    Your first sentence would have been a better thread title.
