Nigeria vs Lesotho: top free betting tips

On the back of successive defeats, Lesotho face the challenge of Lesotho in the first round of World Cup Qualifiers on Thursday, 16 November. Super Eagles enter Godswill Akpabio International Stadium after resuming their winning form against Mozambique.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Both of the two H2Hs of these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals and Nigeria scored a total of seven goals. Lesotho have found the back of the net seven times in their last five road fixtures. But Nigeria have been incredible on their scoring end by notching 15 goals in the same number of home and away matches. Defensively, both teams have conceded goals in at least three of their recent four games. Therefore, we can expect a total of Over 2.5 Goals in this fixture. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

One of the two H2Hs of these two sides has concluded with a BTTS outcome. Nigeria has rattled the net in each of their last five matches. However, they have not stood firm on their defensive end by conceding goals in three games in the aforestated period. On the other hand, Lesotho have also slotted the ball home in four of their last five fixtures on the road. Based on these statistics, we predict the teams to share a BTTS outcome in this encounter.

Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Nigeria

Lesotho have managed to score multiple goals in only one of their last five games in all competitions. On the other hand, Nigeria has been incredible by scoring three or more goals in three of their last four fixtures. Moreover, the Super Eagles have also scored three or more goals in each of their two H2H meetings with Crocodiles. Considering these facts, we believe we to see a 3-1 lead in favour of Nigeria at the end of the ninety minutes in this game.
