Nigeria vs Argentina Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Argentina’s World Cup campaign took a turn for the worse with the heavy loss against Croatia. The Argentinian defence were in self-destructive mode against Croatia and they may be once again in trouble against Nigeria’s pacey attackers. Argentina have been under constant pressure for the last few months and the upcoming match may be the toughest of them all. There is a serious danger of Argentina missing out on the last 16 and Nigeria can qualify for the last 16 even with a draw. I would go with a draw.

Lionel Messi has struggled to get his first goal of the World Cup 2018, but the 31-year-old has had a remarkable 12 shots without scoring in his two matches. There is hope that Lionel Messi will be able to celebrate his birthday with a goal.

Draw – 12/5

Lionel Messi to score anytime – 8/13
