Nigeria vs Argentina | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The final round of matches in Group D brings together Nigeria and Argentina, with the duo set to meet for the fifth time in just six World Cup’s. Argentina know that they must win to have any chance of qualifying for the knockout phase of the competition in Russia, while Nigeria currently sit in second place in the standings, potentially making for a hugely entertaining fixture.
Nigeria and Argentina once again meet in the World Cup group stage on Tuesday evening, with the duo both looking for a positive result in order to aid their chances of qualifying from Group D. With three points to their name from their opening two fixtures, Nigeria know that another win will guarantee their place in the Round of 16, while Argentina must recover from a disappointing start to their campaign, with the pressure on Lionel Messi to deliver when it matters the most. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, be sure to check out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Nigeria.
Nigeria News & Form
Following their impressive win over Iceland in their previous Group D outing, Nigeria are likely to name the same starting line-up against Argentina, meaning that Ahmed Musa and Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho should lead the line. It remains to be seen as to how attacking the Super Eagles will be against Argentina however, with a point potentially being enough to send them through as runner’s up in Group D.
Argentina News & Form
Having reached the World Cup final four years ago in Brazil, Argentina have perhaps been the biggest disappointment this time around, with the pressure mounting on manager Jorge Sampaoli ahead of kick-off. It is believed that Sergio Aguero will be dropped for the clash with Nigeria, along with Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero, with Gonzalo Higuain and Franco Armani replacing the duo.
Nigeria vs Argentina Head to Head
The two nations have met eight times in the past, including three matches at the last three World Cup’s. Despite having lost all three of these fixtures, the Super Eagles will take heart from an entertaining friendly victory over Argentina back in November 2017, when they came from two goals down to eventually run out 4-2 winners. However, with five wins to their name from their eight previous meetings, it is certainly Argentina who have the better record between the two.
