Nigeria vs Sierra Leone: Top Free Betting Tips

Nigeria and Sierra Leone are two solid national teams that will contest for one of the two top places in this group.

Total Goals – Over 2.5

We base our bet mostly on the past games between these two teams as most of them had incredible results with more than 3,4, and even 7 goals. Siera Leone can score goals and we expect them to find at least one in this match. Nigeria have been struggling lately but they are a top 3 team in Africa and should be able to win this or at least score a couple of goals. They are a high-scoring national team, so we expect a lot.

Match Result – Nigeria

Nigeria failed to qualify for the World Cup after two consecutive draws against Ghana and will be motivated to win their qualifications group here because it is their only remaining chance for a big tournament. The team was in a great form at the end of last year and the start of the new year but had a short run in the Africa Cup of Nations. They are a much stronger side than Sierra Leone overall, and we expect a win at the start of the qualifications.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

Nigeria have a strong attack and a good defense overall but they often make mistakes and allow goals to even much weaker opponents. Sierra Leone had some issues at the start of this year and the last Africa Cup of Nations but we expect more from them in this tournament now. The fight for the top position in this group should be between these two nations and we expect a lot of action in the two matches they will play.

Nigeria vs Sierra Leone: Form, Recent Games, and News

Nigeria Preview

Nigeria have not achieved much in recent years but their current squad is quite impressive and there is a huge amount of talent in their lines. Most of their players are young and still have to prove themselves at the top level. We can mention players like Alex Iwobi from Everton, Moses Simon from Nantes and Troost-Ekong from Watford.

Sierra Leone Preview

Sierra Leone have never been a top team in Africa but they have a lot of talent and potential and in the future, we might even expect them to achieve something. A lot of their young players have spent years in huge academies in Europe like Tottenham while others have already had years of experience in Europe. The team can contest for the second place in this group but we think that Nigeria will win it in the end.
