Match result and Both teams to score prediction: Nigeria & BTTS

Each of the previous three H2H meetings between these teams has finished with Nigeria on the winning side. Super Eagles have also gone undefeated in their last four matches while winning three. On the other hand, Mozambique has earned two victories in the last five games. But the Mambas were able to rattle the net in four games during the aforestated period. Defensively, Mozambique claimed just one clean sheet in that course while Nigeria conceded goals in three matches. Therefore, we predict a victory for Nigeria in this fixture with a BTTS outcome.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 Goals

The last two H2Hs of these teams have gone Over 3.5 Goals. Nigeria have found the back of the net 12 times in just their last four fixtures in Friendlies and African Cup of Nations Qualifiers. Meanwhile, Mozambique have also netted the ball five times in their previous three games. The Mambas have also allowed nine goals at the back in the last five fixtures on the road. Following these statistics, we predict the teams to share a total of Over 3.5 Goals.

Mozambique have notched just one goal in three of their previous five fixtures. On the other hand, Nigeria has been excellent by scoring multiple goals in each of their last three matches. Furthermore, the Super Eagles have also rattled the net three or more times in each of their previous two H2Hs against the upcoming rivals. Considering these facts, we predict a 1-3 lead for Nigeria at the end of the ninety minutes of this encounter.
