Croatia vs Nigeria Predictions 

The Blades had a thrill ride qualifying effort which saw them complete second to Iceland in their individual gathering. The present head mentor Zlatko Dalic came as a guardian angel appropriate in front of the urgent match against Ukraine away in Kyiv, days after the group neglected to dispatch the unobtrusive Finland side on home soil. 

Croats demonstrated the tremendous mental quality to breeze through the stern Ukrainian test and they had no inconveniences at all facilitating past Greece in the play-offs winning the primary leg 4-1 on the home fix. Croatia kept on playing hot and cool in post-qualifying friendlies, however they will enter the competition off the back of a 2-1 triumph over Senegal in the last warm-up. 

Croatia thought that it was hard to create in advance in ongoing friendlies and they may battle to break the halt past the efficient protective line of Nigeria's here. The Super Eagles are driven by the German supervisor Gernot Rohr who figured out how to present train which drove the Nigerians towards such an effective qualifying effort all things considered. 

Since the match is of a monstrous significance for both group's further desire at the competition, we need to run with the Under 2.5 goals FT as the fundamental wagering alternative, evaluated at the chances of 1.61. Croatia are positively top picks to secure the crown jewels, however as opposed to support them to win at 1.72, we'd rather recommend the 2.50 chances offered for the Blades to win to nil. 

Anticipated Full-Time Result is Croatia edging past Nigeria in a tight challenge to be chosen by a solitary goal.
