Nigeria and Argentina are both strong teams in this FIFA World cup 2018. This is going to be so exciting to see them fight against each other for the glory. They are placed in the same group this time i.e. group D. If we talk about the last battles, then Nigeria has 0 wins in head to head battles with Argentina. Nigeria holds 3 goals in the last three matches and Argentina taking the lead with 6 goals in the previous 3 matches.
This world cup, the match between Nigeria and Argentina teams is held on June 26, 2018. Kick-off is scheduled for 21:00MSK and venue for the match is Krestovsky Stadium. However, talking about the past, they have faced each other several times.
The first time when these 2 teams were face-to-face, it was 1995, and the last time it was November 14, 2018. In the meantime, Nigeria and Argentina have played 8 times against each other so far. Among all of these matches, Argentina won 5 times, and Nigeria won 2 times so far. And one of the matches ended with no results.
It is going to be hard this time for Nigeria to face Argentina because of the previous losses. Anyways, this anger can become their advantage, and it is possible that Nigeria will take down the game. We cannot predict Messi’s Gameplay, and this guy is unstoppable. We will see on June 26, how this is going to be. Thus, Nigeria, on the other hand, can be a challenging team for Argentina and manager of Nigeria Gernot Rohr from Germany. He can come up with any strategy, and it can be hard for the Argentina team.
On the other hand, Argentina is going to be more challenging and let us discuss its coaching staff. Manager Jorge Sampaoli is one of the finest manager and coach of all time. We cannot just predict his strategies, and it can be challenging for Nigeria too.
It seems tough to predict the winning team this world cup. Though, according to the stats, Argentina is going to win because of the previous wins. This can be a disadvantage for Argentina too as they might flow up with their over-confidence making a way to lose the match. Both of the teams have same players, and still, we keep Argentina ahead of Nigeria in all these aspects.
