Croatia vs Nigeria Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Croatia vs Nigeria predictions and betting tips for the World Cup 2018 Group D fixture on Saturday 16th June at 8pm. Will Croatia successfully assert their dominance in their opening group-stage encounter, or have Nigeria got enough about them to pick up all three points from Zlatko Dalic’s side?

Big things are predicted of this current Croatian national team after failing to give a strong account of themselves in each of their most recent tournament performances. Whilst Dalic’s side possess undoubted talent all across the park, their ability to play effectively as a team has always been in question. Nigeria are another high minded outfit with great potential to succeed at the 2018 World Cup. Whether or not Salisu Yusuf’s team have what it takes to really showcase the very best of their abilities in Russia however, remains an entirely different matter altogether.

Croatia vs Nigeria Predictions

Croatia may lack the widespread star quality that made them such an effective unit several tournaments ago, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they can’t serve to improve upon their current fortunes among this opening group-stage fixture. If Dalic’s outfit are to prove successful however, they must ultimately convert the majority of their chances and not live to rue wasted opportunities when all is said and done. Both Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, of Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, have enough quality to take this Nigerian team apart, yet their fellow attacking teammates must not disappoint once the chances are inevitably thrust upon them. We’re betting on them to do so and the first of our Croatia vs Nigeria predictions is for a Croatia win.

Whilst Ahmed Musa has totally failed to set the English top-flight alight during his ongoing stint at the King Power Stadium, Leicester City’s out of form front-man always seems to produce the goods when called upon on the international stage. Alongside each of Kelechi Iheanacho and Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, Nigeria possess an attacking front-line with the potential to find the back of the net on several different occasions. Ahmed Musa therefore begins to represent a shrewd anytime goal-scorer according to our latest Croatia vs Nigeria betting tips at the World Cup. Check the line-ups before placing this bet.

BEST ODDS for Musa to score are 19/4 at 888Sport – bet £10 to win £57.50 and get a £30 free bet here.

We’ve already tipped a Croatia win in our earlier Croatia vs Nigeria prediction so we’re sticking with that for a correct score bet. With both Modric and Rakitic on board, this team possess enough potential to really make their mark at World Cup 2018. With tougher tests against Argentina and Iceland coming up, Croatia know three points are vital here and we think they’ll just manage it against Nigeria. The African side lost 2-1 at Wembley in a recent friendly and we could get the same result here. The last of our Croatia vs Nigeria predictions is for Croatia to win 2-1.

The best odds for Croatia to win 2-1 are 17/2 with Bet Victor and you get a £40 free bet once you spend £10.
