Tip Reasoning

  • Nigeria have won 22 of their last 25 home World Cup qualifiers (Drawn 3).
  • Central African Republic are without star player Geoffrey Kondogbia.
  • Central African Republic lost 1-0 to Liberia in September, a few days after Nigeria had beaten the same opposition 2-0.

Super Eagles set to tame Wild Beasts 

Nigeria will be expecting to take maximum points from their back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Central African Republic this month.

The Super Eagles are almost at full strength, missing only Wilfred Ndidi and Peter Etebo from recent starters, while Central African Republic’s biggest star – Geoffrey Kondogbia – has been omitted by Wild Beasts coach Raoul Savoy.

Gernot Rohr presides over what appears to be a happy Nigerian camp following their twin victories last month over Liberia and Cape Verde Islands.

They came from behind to win the latter game 2-1 with Victor Osimhen on the scoresheet and the in-form Napoli striker has been picked out by Savoy as a player his team must keep in check.

Central African Republic have not won in almost two years, losing seven and drawing two of their last nine matches, so it would be a huge shock if they were to upset the hosts.

Only one goal scored in their last five tells its own story of where their problems lie and we believe Nigeria’s solid defence can keep a clean sheet on Thursday.

Our recommendation of a 2-0 correct score bet is based on this being the most frequent outcome in Nigeria’s home games over their last three World Cup qualifying campaigns.
