Nigeria to win

Nigeria has been a perennial favourite to qualify for the FIFA World Cup. The visitors bagged a 2-nil victory at home against Liberia in the first match and we don't this they will struggle for points in this game either. Away win is the best bet here even though Cape Verde is a highly defensive side.

Nigeria to open the scoring

Nigeria is also our favourite side to open the scoring in this fixture. The visitors are 34th on the FIFA list and have enjoyed a great deal of success in international football. On the other hand, Cape Verde is 77th on FIFA lost and expects their toughest match in the qualifier fixtures to be against Nigeria.

Draw at half-time

Our third pick for this game is a draw at the break. Nigeria may be the best side in this fixture and ultimately favourites to top Group C but we don't think it will be a walkover for the super eagles. Cape Verde's formidable defence is why we are backing a draw at half-time.

Match Preview: Cape Verde vs Nigeria

The big question everyone is asking about this fixture is will Cape Verde prevent Nigeria from securing another victory? Find out what we think our team previews below.

Cape Verde

Cape Verde’s boast of a better defence in this fixture and also based on their recent matches. The hosts bagged a 1-1 draw against the Central African Republic in the first game and are arguably the second-best team in Group C. With that, we expect the hosts to put in a shift against Nigeria in the second game, in a fixture that is expected to generate a lot of tension.

Nigeria

Popularly known as ‘Super Eagles', Nigeria's national soccer team is not the outfit to wish away in world cup qualifiers. They have gathered lots of experience at this level over the years. The visitors are undoubtedly the best placed to claim the first spot in Group C. However, this fixture could define or re-define their chances of playing in the next world cup given that Cape Verde is the biggest impediment to Super Eagles in Group C.
