Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
A spot at the 2022 World Cup finals will be at stake when Nigeria and Cape Verde face each other at Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. The Super Eagles have retained top position in Group C thanks to a 2-0 win over Liberia, with the team moving one step closer to meeting the goal. Since Nigeria are one point away from securing their place at the next year’s showpiece tournament, we are positive that they will adopt a cautious approach in the decider.
Both Victor Osimhen and Alex Iwobi should keep their spots in the starting XI, while Ahmed Musa, who scored as a substitute against Liberia, could replace Kelechi Iheanacho up front. Cape Verde, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in Group C. Since the Blue Sharks are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the decider, we predict that Nigeria are going to seal the victory on the break.
