Nigeria vs Iceland Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Nigeria had a disappointing game against Croatia and things are unlikely to improve for the Africans, who are winless in five games. In fact, the narrow 1-0 win over Poland is the only success for Nigeria in seven games. Iceland’s biggest weapon is their resolute nature and strong fighting spirit. After a dogged defensive display against Argentina, Iceland are expected to be a little more adventurous in the game. Yet, the two teams may cancel out each other due to a lack of significant attacking threat.

This is expected to be a low scoring match since both teams do not have a great offensive threat. Nigeria have come up with a grand total of three goals in the last six matches. Even though Iceland have scored in each of the last four games, they are more likely to be focused on keeping out Nigeria. I would go with under 2.5 goals in the match.

Draw – 11/5

Total goals under 2.5 – 8/15
