Argentina vs Nigeria – International Friendly : In another round of friendlies between the national teams…
Argentina, managed by Jorge Sampaoli, will meet Nigeria, led by Salisu Yusuf, this Tuesday, in neutral ground,
more specifically in Krasnodar at the Krasnodar stadium, on a match between two teams that managed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The side managed by Jorge Sampaoli, who guided them to the said qualification for the 2018 World Cup, in Russia, goes into this match on the best streak of results of the past few months, getting 2 wins on their last 2 matches,
against two national teams with some power and quality, both individually and collectively, beating Ecuador (1-3) on the final match of the qualification stage for next year’s competition and also beating the hosts of the World Cup, Russia, 1-0 on the past Saturday.
As for Nigeria, they are coming off an excellent qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup on the African qualifiers,
standing isolated in 1st place of their group, once again achieving qualification for a big international competition, getting their 3rd straight qualification for a World Cup, despite having failed on the last editions of the CAN.
The Argentinian team has been going through a lot of difficulties on the past few months, be it in terms of results or in terms of playing quality, struggling to qualify for the 2018 World Cup inclusively.
Argentina vs Nigeria – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Given the delicate state they were on when Sampaoli arrived, the manager has been doing relatively well,
but he quickly needs to start worrying about preparing the South-Americans to a good performance at the World Cup, which means it is important for him to take these friendlies seriously.
This way, I see an Argentinian team focused and looking to be serious when facing the Africans, which leads me to believe on their victory here.
