Croatia vs Nigeria Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Croatia were able to end the summer list of friendlies on a positive note with the victory over Senegal. The team are up against a Nigerian outfit, which has been struggling for good results in the build-up to the tournament. The victory over Poland back in March is the only success for Nigeria in six games. Croatia have a great chance of reaching the knockout stages – after failures to get beyond the group stage in their previous two appearances – and the team needs to start off with a victory. The Croatians – featuring the likes of Luka Modric – are my pick to win the match.

Despite a strong array of talents, Croatia have been unable to make much of an impact in the goalscoring section. The two goals against Senegal is the first of five matches for Croatia to witness more than 1.5 goals. I would opt for Croatia to score under 1.5 goals.

Croatia win – 8/11

Croatia to score under 1.5 goals – 4/5
