Bet on Nigeria to win 

Nigeria are a better and more clinical team than South Africa. The Super Falcons have several players playing in the world’s best players in Europe. The same cannot be said for South Africa who have not played in a World Cup since 2010 and who have not won the Africa Cup of Nations since 1996.

South Africa have plenty of tenacity and could potentially give Nigeria a very good game but in the end, this should be a win for the Super Falcons especially as they will be playing at home.

Bet on Nigeria to win 2-0 

Nigeria have dominated South Africa in recent head to head meetings. South Africa have only beaten the Nigerians once in recent times and that was back in 2013. South Africa managed to force penalties when the teams met in the semi-finals of the Afcon earlier this year. However, in this game, Nigeria will have home advantage.

The Super Falcons should dominate this clash from start to finish, forcing the South Africans into their own half for much of it. In the end, a 2-0 win for the Super Falcons seems like a fair result.

Bet on Nigeria to score the last goal 

It’s safe to say that Nigeria will score the first and last goal in this game. South Africa do not have a good track record of scoring, especially against giants of African football and when they play away from home.
