Brazil vs Nigeria Betting Tips and Match Preview

by AllSportsPredictions

When the 34th ranked team in the world takes on another team ranked 3rd, it always seems a perfect plot for the David versus Goliath story. However, in the case of Nigeria versus Brazil, numbers may be deceptive. Nigeria takes on Brazil in an international friendly on Sunday in far away Singapore with many football fans not really knowing what to expect. The highly unpredictable nature of the new Super Eagles which comprises of youthful energy blended with skill and hunger for success, and a Brazilian squad that parades some of the best players in the world, a tradition that dates back to the beginning of football itself, makes this game a must watch.

Victor Osihmen will be hoping to continue his rich vein of form against Brazil

The Nigerian national team are giants in their own rights after their exploits in the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the teams overall performance in present times. It is amazing that Nigeria and Brazil have never met in any competitive match-up at the senior national level. However, the African nation has once left a bitter taste in the mouth of the Brazilians when the nation’s Olympic squad beat the golden boys from South America to the Atlanta 1996 Olympic gold after dumping them out in the Semi-Finals.

Brazil have beaten Nigeria before too though, albeit in an international friendly in Abuja that ended 3 -0 in favor of the visiting team in 2003. While the Nigerian national team is loved and respected by Brazilians, there has always been a sense of revenge in the air each time Nigeria is mentioned as they have not quite forgotten about the Atlanta defeat.

Nigeria comes into this match with some of her youthful players firing on all cylinders in Europe and on other continents where they ply their trades. Players like Victor Osimhen, Samuel Chukwueze, Peter Olayinka and Emmanuel Dennis all have something to prove as they look to stake a claim to a permanent place in the team and show what the new Super Eagles are all about.

Neymar has scored 61 goals for Brazil in 100 games

The star-studded Brazilian team led by the prodigiously talented Neymar will be fired up to maintain the winning tradition against their African opposition. Amongst those that will be doing the job for the Selecao are Coutinho, Firmino, Casemiro, Gabriel Jesus and the tireless Dani Alves.

Given the firepower of the two teams and the determination to come out tops, we expect goals from this match, with both teams taking their chances and making their marks. Despite the fact that this is a friendly game, we expect the Brazilian team to put up a dominant performance giving the quality of stars they will be parading.
