PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The second round of the quartet D will close up at Volgograd Arena in the south-west corner of Russia. Here the experienced World Cup’s fighter Nigeria will face the World Cup’s rookie Iceland. Will the Vikings earn some points tonight?

Having pulled off one of the shocks of the opening round of fixtures at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, Iceland will be hoping for all three points against Nigeria on Friday. In their opening match of Group D, the fearless tournament debutants managed to hold Argentina to a 1-1 draw thanks to a compact and hard-working collective performance. When an unnerved Lionel Messi missed a penalty that could have won the game, the Icelanders visibly grew in confidence and now Heimir Hallgrimsson’s side are in with a decent chance of qualifying for the Round of 16.

On the other hand, Nigeria go into this fixture under significant psychological pressure, as defeat would consign them to an early exit from the tournament. Gernot Rohr’s team were unconvincing in their first match in Russia, when they looked predictable in attack and less than assured defending set pieces in a fully deserved 2-0 reverse to Croatia.

Possible line-ups
Nigeria: Francis Uzoho; Abdullahi Shehu, William Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun, Brian Idowu; Wilfred Ndidi, John Obi Mikel, Oghenekaro Etebo; Victor Moses, Odion Ighalo, Alex Iwobi.

Iceland: Hannes Halldorsson; Birkir Saevarsson, Kari Arnason, Ragnar Sigurdsson, Hordor Magnusson; Emil Hallfredsson, Aron Gunnarsson; Gylfi Sigurdsson, Birkir Bjarnason, Rurik Gislason; Alfred Finnbogason.

Despite being overwhelming underdogs, the Icelandic Vikings dug deep and came away with a 1-1 draw against five-time WC finalists Argentina. They are not in Russia just to enjoy being at the World Cup and the team’s official goal is to qualify for the last 16. We believe the guests can continue their successful way to play-off stage by earning some points against Nigeria. We predict their win with an Asian handicap of 0 with a bright coefficient of 1.92.
