Nigeria vs South Africa Prediction

The head-to-head statistics of the fixture between Nigeria and South Africa reveal a tightly contested match. Expert soccer predictions show that both sides have the quality and ability to cause their opponents problems.

In their last five meetings, there have been three draws: two 1-1 stalemates and one 2-2 draw. South Africa has won once (0-2), while Nigeria has also secured one victory (2-1).

Nigeria is the football pick to prevail in this match. They are the hosts, and they will be motivated by the fact that they haven’t won their opening two matches in Group C.

Nigeria vs. South Africa Betting Tip

  • Football Pick: A draw with both sides keeping a clean sheet.

Nigeria’s home record against South Africa is good. Both sides are stacked with clinical attackers but have also shown robust defensive structures.

However, Nigeria showcased a steely defensive setup at the Africa Cup of Nations led by the reliable Troost-Ekong. They are a safe bet to keep a clean sheet.
