Nigeria vs Equatorial Guinea Match Odds

Nigeria’s participation in this competition comes at a time where African football has multiple powerhouses stalking the land. Previous champions Egypt looks hungry and have one of the best wingers in the world at their disposal. Tunisia is looking in amazing shape. Algerian players are choosing Algeria over France, and we are seeing that happen a lot more in recent times.

Nigeria will boost by their newest brightest star Victor Boniface from Bayer Leverkusen. In his 23 appearances this season, he has been able to secure 16 goals and 8 assists making him one of the most prolific forwards in the Bundesliga. He will be one you do not want to overlook. 

The odds on this opening game are set at 43/100 for a Nigeria win, 34/5 Equatorial Guinea and, 3/1 for the Draw

 

Anytime Goal scorer – Victor Osimhen 26/25 

A player that has made waves around Europe has to be Victor Osimhen. The star who plays his football in Italy for Napoli has made a name for himself. Through his pace, fast feet, and partnership with Kvaratskhelia. He is one player from this Nigerian side we will be keeping a close eye on. He is an admirable player to have as part of your bet slip as an anytime goal scorer. The odds on him finding the back of the net on opening day are set at 26/25. 

3 Way & Both Teams to Score – Home & No 21/25 

Equatorial Guinea will have a tough time creating chances against this very experienced and industrious Nigerian side. They will try to manage damage control by keeping the Nigerian Star upfront quite while also trying to catch them on the counter. This kind of football is often considered to be negative or even backwards. The truth is in cup competitions, it sometimes paves the way to progress. By keeping the big team from finding the net you can walk away with a point and hopefully if you can pick up a win against one of the other small teams in your group, you may have enough to progress. However, we doubt they will be able to walk away with a point. That is why we recommend you take combo market of home win and no to both teams to score 21/25
