Nigeria V Argentina: Tips and Prediction – 25.06.2014

By on June 25, 2014
Nigeria and Argentina are both already in the next round, the only doubt is when we talk about the first place in Group F. The match will take place Wednesday at 05:00 pm and Argentina is the favorite side.
Nigeria is 99.99% in the last 16 round. Mikel, Moses, Odemwingie and their team-mates have four points after two matches and a goal difference by 1-0, with the best defense at Fifa World Cup 2014. The african side will keep the same formation, 4-2-3-1. Oboabona is doubtful and he could miss this game. Babatunde was back at training and he will be fit to start this match.
Argentina will field a 4-3-3 formation, Mascherano and Gago as DMs, while Di Maria will support the attacking trio. Messi will partner Lavezzi and Palacio in attack, Aguero and Higuain being rested. Argentina won both games until now but their missions were not very easy, proof that they struggled against Bosnia, 2-1 and Iran, 1-0, both times Messi scoring the winner.
In 2011 these two sides met twice. Nigeria won the first friendly, 4-1, while five days later Argentina won the game 3-1.
Nigeria probable lineup:
Ambrose – Omeruo – Yobo – Oshaniwa
Mikel – Onazi
Odemwingie – Babatunde – Musa
Argentina probable lineup:
Zabaleta – Garay – Fernandez – Rojo
Gago – Mascherano – Di Maria
Palacio – Messi – Lavezzi
Prediction: Under 3.0 goals AH @ 1.48
Nigeria has a good defense, while Argentina’s attack was not in its best form. We expect a tight game with less than three goals between this two teams. If we will see exactly three goals, then money will be refunded.
The best odds for Nigeria vs Argentina: 8.50 – 3.90 – 1.53
