Nigeria – Statistics & Current Form
It is very difficult to give a tip between Nigeria and South Korea, as both teams compete with mostly unknown players.

At the African Cup, the Nigerians have already proved that they are a tournament team. At the end of last year they won the title with a narrow final win against South Africa on penalties. With four games in the knockout phase without conceding the defensive strength was the key to success.
In 2019, some friendly matches were held, four of which were won and four lost. Against European teams such as Austria or Belgium, there were usually bankruptcies. This tendency has been confirmed on the first day of the World Cup. Against Norway, the charges of coach Thomas Dennerby had at no time a chance against the playfully superior superior Scandinavians. Already at half time the game was decided at the score of 3: 0. In the second round, the favorite eased a bit and Nigeria got a chance or two. But even best scoring freestanding in front of the case were awarded, which at the same time the problem of the team became obvious.

Whether the pure victory tip, the double chance 1 / X or a handicap is the best option depends on the personal risk perception. The double chance is the “safe” option and of course it does not have that high odds. That’s why we decided on the victory for the pure tip and selected the bet with three units quite low. Nigeria has more confidence on Matchday 1 and more experience in big tournaments.
