World Cup Prediction Croatia - Nigeria

Croatia – Nigeria World Cup Prediction

Croatia leaves for this 2018 World Cup as one of the outsiders to meddle in the title fight. At least theoretically, given its generation of gold. Players like Mandzukic, Modric, Perisic or Rakitic reconcile talent with high experience. This may be crucial for the Corinthian campaign, starting in this group D. The opponent is the renewed Nigeria, which with an explosive attack promises to be one of the surprises in this world cup. A well-worked team, with strong transitions and great quality, especially in Mikel, Ndidi, Iwobi and Moses. At the Kiliningrad Stadion, Croatia starts with favoritism, but to what extent can Nigeria surprise?


Croatia started the qualifying round in a big way, but it was dropping out of production, something that went on until private matches.

In the last 4 games, two wins and two losses. If the defeat with Brazil (2-0) can be considered normal, already with Peru (2-0) was something difficult to digest, mainly because of the inability of the team to impose their football.

But, Nigeria made it even worse, in the last 5 games, only won 1, drew 1 and lost 3.

Nigeria play in transitions, and yet conceded goals in 4 of their last 5 matches.

Croatia – Nigeria Prediction

It is true that Nigeria has everything to surprise. There is no shortage of quality, strength, speed and even some experience in players who play in the top leagues of Europe. However, it does not seem to arrive with the defensive process tuned, something that Croatia can take advantage of, due to the quality of its attackers. With Nigeria’s most defensive stance, and with Croatia being very pragmatic, at times the game is expected to be a game with few goals. Less than 3 goals, Asian handicap.
