NIGERIA v BOSNIA BETTING PREVIEWThe Super Eagles were held 0-0 by Iran in their first group match and, with the biggest task against Argentina still to come, they really need three points here. Despite having dominated the possession stats with 63%, Nigeria showed little urgency in attack. The African team never looked very capable of disrupting a far more organized side such as Iran.
Oboabona has been ruled out with an ankle injury while three other players - Kenneth Omeruo, Ahmed Musa and Reuben Gabriel - could also be absent. Peter Odemwingie is pushing for a start after coming from the bench in the match against Iran.
Bosnia lost their opener 2-1 to Argentina, getting off to a terrible start when scoring a third minute own goal. Then, they played the Albiceleste very tight throughout the match and bested them on quality opportunities with 11 shots on goal to five.
Salihovic has recovered and now he could go back at his position, Kolasinac at the stopper, while Bicakcic would move on the bench. Safet Susic has no other fresh injury worries and he is unlikely to make too many changes. The combination of Ibsevic and Dzeko to start up front while Misimovic may be dropped from the starting XI.
Bosnia-Herzegovina won their first three matches against an African nation. Pjanic and his team mates had even brought down Ivory Coast (2-1), just a few days before the start of the World Cup. Nigeria haven’t won any of their last nine World Cup games (D3 L6), their last victory was a 1-0 over Bulgaria in 1998.
