Argentina vs Nigeria: World Cup match preview, Team News, Line-ups & Prediction

Nigeria will face Argentina in their final Group D fixture on Tuesday with the Sampaoli-led side trailing at the bottom of the group after they lost 3-0 against Croatia and drew with Iceland.

 

Tonight’s encounter is a Do or Die for Le Albiceleste as they face off against the Super Eagles in a clash that is must-win for both Nations in the highly competitive Group D.

 

It’s not been the best of times for the 2-time former champions who started off their World Cup campaign in a lacklustre draw against a much determined Iceland side in a match which saw their talisman Messi missing another penalty kick from the spot.

 

It is believed under-fire boss Jorge Sampaoli will still lead his team despite their disastrous start to the World Cup.

 

There have been numerous reports that despite Sampoli still being the manager – he has no role in selecting the final XI.

 

Meanwhile, Nigerian captain John Mikel Obi sustained a fractured hand during their 2-0 win over Iceland but head coach Gernot Rohr still thinks he could take to the field to face the South American team.

 

Predicted line-ups

Nigeria: Uzoho; Omeruo, Troost-Ekong, Balogun, Idowu; Mikel, Ndidi; Moses, Etudo, Musa; Iheanacho

Argentina: Armani; Salvio, Otamendi, Rojo, Tagliafico; Mascherano, Perez; Di Maria, Messi, Dybala; Higuain

 

Prediction 

Argentina 1-2 Nigeria
