Nigeria – Iceland betting preview and advices
After Messi and Co failed to beat Iceland in the first round, situation in Group D looks confusing and unpredictable. With three points, the Croatians are in the lead, but they are waiting for two difficult matches against direct competitors and it is hard to call them clear favourites in these upcoming clashes. Iceland has completed its primary task in the group stage – to take points against main favourite of the quartet and now they need to defeat Super Eagles to have a chance to reach the playoffs. Northmen never cease to amaze and, although bookmakers still underestimate this team, in today’s game they can be called favourites. The youngest team at this World Cup, Nigeria disappointed in the first game, although the result of that duel is difficult to call fair, because first, Etobe scored an own goal, and then the Croats scored second goal from the penalty spot. On the one hand, Africans has not conceded a single goal from open play, having managed to hold a powerful Croats` attack, on the other hand, they disappointed with their toothless attack again. Nigeria has scored just three goals in the last seven games and the team’s problems in building up are obvious. The Icelanders managed to play successfully in defence against Argentina, forward line of which is represented by world stars, let alone the forwards from Nigeria! We can expect an underish game, outcome of which may decide one goal.

Nigeria – Iceland H2H Statistic
It will be the first teams` meeting
Despite successful statistics of the first game (Super Eagles had more shots on goal than the Croats), Nigeria has not looked dangerous, and all their attacks have not constituted a threat. Undoubtedly, the team’s defence looks safe, but we all know that African teams are far from the most disciplined, and their goalkeepers always make many mistakes, so if we talk about underish game, then Iceland should be preferred. Northmen are probably the most effective team in the world, because in the game against Argentina, they had only 27% of ball possession and inflicted just 3 shots on goal, but anyway were able to score and take one point. At the same time, Nigerian football definitely cannot be called effective… Most likely, we will not see many goals today, and the Icelanders will take three points, 0-1.
