Nigeria vs Iceland Prediction & Betting tips
At European Championships 2016, Iceland enthralled European football with inspiring performances, and on the first day of the World Cup in Russia against Argentina, the rest of the world! It is even said that the female Argentine fans think that their eyes are more focused on the “beautiful Vikings” during the game rather than on the game of their own team. In any case, the South Americans led by superstar Lionel Messi could not beat the Icelanders, who thus laid the foundation for the KO phase. Now follows against Nigeria a victory, then the knockout stage is not far away. In the game of Nigeria against Iceland, however, the odds are balanced. The bookmakers see no team crucial front.
Nigeria beat Croatia at the start and lost 2-0 at the end. An own goal as well as a penalty by penalty caused the defeat of the Super Eagles, who were satisfied with their game over long distances, but missed it in their own estimation to set pin-pricks. For the Africans, this was the third defeat in an international match in a row after the two defeats in the two tests before the World Cup against England and the Czech Republic. In fact, Nigeria lost five of the last six internationals and also played once again only a draw.
Should there be no countable against Iceland, then Nigeria can already plan the trip home. Even a point would probably be too little, considering that in the last group match Argentina is waiting. In the match between Nigeria and Iceland, bets on the Super Eagles bring slightly higher betting odds. But with differences in the whole range of odds of just 0.2, even the bookmakers are not quite sure. Whether Nigeria – Iceland is worth a tip on the Africans?
With three defeats against Mexico, Peru and the not even qualified Norwegians as well as a draw against the also not participating in the World Cup Ghana Iceland flew to Russia for the World Cup. Hardly anyone had expected that the Vikings would prevail against the championship favorite Argentina. But Iceland should show it all again. In the end, the Icelanders won against the Gauchos 1-1, but admittedly benefited from an unused penalty by Lionel Messi after just over an hour. Certainly, Argentina had much more from the game, which not only 73% ball possession, but also express the odds of 26: 9 in favor of the South Americans.
And yet, one point for Iceland was not undeserved in the end. Thus, the Vikings have mastered the supposedly hardest hurdle in this group. With a win against Nigeria, Iceland could open the door to the round of the last sixteen, let alone Croatia win the day before against Argentina. In the game Iceland against Nigeria, a tip on the Vikings is still dangerous, even if the bookmakers see minimal advantages in Iceland.
