After a disappointing performance in their opener against Iran, Nigeria were vastly improved as they took their points tally to four with a victory over Bosnia last time out and they now need just a point from their final fixture to guarantee their place in the next round.
Unfortunately that last match is against Argentina, who are William Hill’s 8/15 jollies to get the better of Stephen Keshi’s side.
Admittedly La Albiceleste struggled to break down Iran but they have that vital extra quality and even though they are through the South Americans also have the incentive of trying to secure a potentially easier last 16 opponent than France.
They’re 13/5 at betway to defeat the Super Eagles in a contest that sees both teams score, it’s 19/20 (888Sport) for the clash to produce more than 2.5 goals and having struck in Argentina’s first two, Lionel Messi is 11/4 via bet365 to break the deadlock in this one.
Argentina to win and both teams to score – 13/5 (betway)
