Betting prediction was written by Dan Adair


Final match in Group B in this fascinating three way race for a semi final berth. Both sides thrashed Tahiti as expected but Nigeria lost out to Uruguay in a very tight game. The African giants need a win here as Uruguay have a gimme against the Oceania champions.

Nigeria have brought a development squad here to Brazil and this side is a typical African side. Pacey strong but lacking in all round ability, The side is lacking defensively and will struggle against Spain for sure. They were very wasteful against Tahiti and lacked cohesion for most of the game. Impressive Milan striker Nnamdi Oduamadi apart they gave a lacklustre performance. Indeed they gifted a goal to the tiny Pacific Islanders and if they can score World and European Champions Spain could have a field day here. Nigeria know only a win is good enough and even that may not be enough if Uruguay run riot in Recife.

Spain move on effortlessly to six points after two successive wins. 1st up they totally dominated a decent Uruguay side and were unlucky to only win 2-1. They have over 78% possession in a game that the South Americans were made to look very ordinary indeed. Second game was a chance to see the back up squad as all but Sergio Ramos were rested as Tahiti were dismissed before a ball was kicked. When Fernando Torres scores 4 against you know you are in trouble. Spain will be well rested and with all the front line players back for this one it looks like three wins from three for me and maximum points.


On paper this does look a sure-fire Spain win, Xavi and Iniesta will benefit from a long rest and this will increase the likelihood of an easy win. Vicente del Bosque must decide to replace Torres with Soldado but even a four goal salvo may not be good enough for the Chelsea man to regain his place. Spain will do what Spain normally do and boss the game from the off. Nigeria have little chance of impacting the reigning World Champions as they don’t have the all round strength to compete and will not get any worthwhile share of the ball. I see an easy win here and Spain -1.5  looks a great bet. Suggest get on as soon as you can with this one as the match price of Spain is dropping all the time.
