PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The third match day in the group D will be held with two simultaneous games. In one of them Nigeria and Argentina will play for life. Will the former World champions enter to play-off stage?

Argentina will be firmly hoping history is on their side in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday. Having been backed into a corner after dropping points in their first two games, their FIFA World Cup record against Nigeria may be their last remaining crumb of comfort. This will be their fifth encounter, having won all four up to now.

Nigeria on the other hand will arrive intent on getting that persistent monkey off their back, as a win would guarantee their spot in the last 16 for a fourth time. They will be buoyed after seeing Croatia’s dominant display against the disjointed two-time winners, while having themselves seen off Iceland 2-0.

Possible line-ups
Nigeria: Francis Uzoho; Kenneth Omeruo, William Ekong, Leon Balogun; Tyronne Ebuehi, Wilfred Ndidi, John Obi Mikel, Oghenekaro Etebo, Victor Moses; Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa

Argentina: Franco Armani; Eduardo Salvio, Gabriel Mercado, Nicolas Otamendi, Nicolas Tagliafico; Ever Banega, Javier Mascherano, Enzo Perez, Angel Di Maria; Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain.

The fallout from Argentina’s defeat potentially promises plenty of changes to their line-up, while Ahmed Musa will be pushing for a starting berth after his two-goal showing against the debutants.

Argentina largely has its future in their own hands, something that seemed unlikely after the painful defeat against Croatia. A heavy win should be enough, though they will still need Croatia to play their part. We believe the Argentinian superstars with Lionel Messi at the head will discover their high playing potential in this crucial clash. We expect the guests being favorites will win the first World Cup’s fixture and be promoted to the play-offs. Our unique betting recommendation is Argentina’s victory with a good coefficient of 1.60.
