Betting Tip for matchday 6 of the 2019-2021 WC-Quali. Africa between Nigeria and Cape Verde. The game will be played at Teslim Balogun Stadium (Lagos, Nigeria) on 16.11.2021 at 17:00.

We will explore Melbet and Paripesa Sportsbooks for our betting tips for this fixture.

Nigeria

The Super Eagles of Nigeria head into this game as the top side, holding a two points advantage on their visitors and will pick up the lone ticket from the group if they can avoid defeat.

Nigeria have reacted well to the home defeat they suffered against the Central African Republic by winning the reverse fixture and following up with another victory last Saturday.

Gernot Rohr’s side have failed to win in two of their last four games at home but they got a win against Cape Verde in the first leg of this tie but the stakes are higher now for both sides.

Cape Verde

Cape Verde have won three games on the bounce since losing to Nigeria in September and they would need to get another one in Lagos to stand any chance of making their first-ever World Cup appearance.

Leitao Brito’s side needed two second-half goals to complete a comeback against the Central African Republic and another strong performance like they delivered in the second 45 minutes of that game will be needed against a much more talented Nigeria team.

The Blue Sharks got the maximum points against Liberia on their last trip, an upset against Nigeria in Lagos will probably rank highest in the Island country’s sporting history.

Our Nigeria vs Cape Verde Betting Tips

This fixture is a winner takes all affair, although a draw will be enough to see the Nigerians through. Gernot Rohr and his men are close to getting over the finish line and they would not want a repeat of their last outing in Lagos.

The Eagles are the favourites and with the backing of the vociferous Lagos fans, they are likely to get the result needed to get into the playoffs. Nigeria are priced at 1.43 for a win on Melbet and given their current form, the Nigerians are a good value for the win.

Nigeria, of late, have been in good goalscoring form with at least two goals in each of their last three games. Cape Verde have also had their fair share of goalscoring and we reckon there will be over 1.5 goals. Paripesa has that option at 1.37 which is a good value.
