On the back of a winning streak in the Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers, Nigeria meet Saudi Arabia in Friendlies on Friday, 13 October. The Green make an appearance in this game after a horrid losing streak in Friendlies.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

The only H2H between these teams featured a goalless draw but given the current situation, we expect a total of Over 2.5 Goals in this game.

Despite losing all of their previous five matches, Saudi Arabia has managed to find the back of the net in four of them. On the other hand, Nigeria have rattled the net in each of their previous three fixtures. On the defensive end, Super Eagles have conceded goals in three of their last five fixtures in all competitions. Given these statistics, we predict these teams will share a BTTS outcome in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Nigeria
Saudi Arabia has been limited to scoring just one goal per game in four of their last five matches. But Nigeria have rattled the net multiple goals in each of their previous two fixtures.
