The Super Eagles will head into the diversion in significantly higher spirits following a rousing presentation from Leicester City's striker Ahmed Musa on Friday against Iceland. The man who spent the past season on credit at CSKA Moscow exploited the opportunity to influence the beginning line-to up against Iceland setting up himself into a distinction producer with a captivating second-half prop. 

Musa volleyed the ball home only four minutes into the second half before a heavenly solo exertion between quantities of Icelandic players at the back to set the last score 15 minutes from time. Such indicating absolutely earned Musa a place in the beginning line-up here in the last apparatus of the gathering stage. It will be exceptionally fascinating to check whether he will have the capacity to demonstrate a portion of his immense potential past the battling cautious line of Argentina's here. 

Musa's endeavors did the activity for Los Gauchos also in light of the fact that the Argentinians now just need a major triumph over the Super Eagles to secure the second place, or any win joined with Croatia not losing to Iceland in the other excursion of the gathering.

The draw has assembled Nigeria and Argentina in a similar Wold Cup gather in back to back versions. The match played four years prior in Brazil saw Los Gauchos secure a 3-2 triumph roused by Lionel Messi's prop. 

Strangely, the two sides met each other at World Cups 2002 and 2010 too, Argentina winning both of these ties barely 1-0. 

Generally speaking, groups are taking a gander at their ninth no holds barred experience as Argentina got five wins and two misfortunes in past eight.

Nigeria vs Argentina Predictions 

The Super Eagles got just their second triumph in last 14 World Cup undertakings when they crushed Iceland on Friday evening. They demonstrated to have what it takes to remain aggressive to any semblance of Argentina in the historical backdrop of H2H experiences as World Cups, with La Albiceleste winning every one of three diversions just by a solitary goal edge. 

Since the Argentinian protective line demonstrated an unmistakable absence of fastidiousness in the opening two conflicts at the competition, we have motivations to expect the continuation of the high-scoring H2H slant. You can back the fifth continuous no holds barred trip between these two sides to see goals at the two finishes and deliver no less than three altogether at the chances of 2.30. 

Argentina will be vigorously propelled to raise the spirits and secure a wrecking triumph in the wake of anguish the heaviest thrashing in the gathering phase of the World Cup since falling 6-1 to Czechoslovakia in 1958. They are on a kept running of four straight amusements without a triumph at World Cup, their longest winless streak ever of rivalry. There is still time for Lionel Messi and his partners to repair things and we trust they have what it takes to make the most of it against the African outfit. 

Anticipated Full-Time Result is a triumph for Argentina in what could without much of a stretch be a high-scoring spine chiller in St. Petersburg.
