Czech Republic vs Nigeria: Super Eagles far more focused

Kick Off: 1400, 06/06/2018

Stadium: Rudolf-Tonn-Stadion

Nigeria showed plenty of industry in the second half against England and more of the same would make them a solid bet to beat the Czech Republic in Austria.

Having failed to qualify for the World Cup, the Czechs looked short of motivation when crushed 4-0 by Australia on Friday.

That performance makes them easy to oppose here, so 11/10 for the Super Eagles will do for us in our Czech Republic vs Nigeria betting tips.

A Look At Czech Republic’s Betting Odds

The Czech Republic suffered a biggest-ever defeat since their formation in 1994 when thrashed by the Socceroos in St Polten.

Karel Jarolim’s side were simply never at the races and fell behind on 32 minutes following a drab first half an hour.

There were few signs of a positive response as Australia gathered more and more momentum and it has to be assumed that the Czechs are already planning for their summer holidays.

Looking at the Czech Republic vs Nigeria odds, we like 5/2 for the African outfit to lead at half-time and full-time.

A Look At Nigeria’s Betting Odds

Nigeria have been something of a Jekyll and Hyde team in international friendlies and that was evident in a game of two halves against England at Wembley.

The Three Lions looked set for an easy night when cruising 2-0 up at the break but everything changed when Arsenal front man Alex Iwobi pulled one back soon after the interval.

Gernot Rohr’s men couldn’t find an equaliser but there was a lot to like about the way they responded to a half-time change of personnel and system.

Former Chelsea midfielder Jon Obi Mikel said: “We are a very young team and we have to learn, it is good to have a taste of what we are going to face in Russia.

“We have to learn together as a team, we have to improve and that is why we played this game against such a quality side, so we can know where we are and now we go back to training and try and improve.”

We’re hoping the African Nations Cup finalists can recapture the sparkle of November’s 4-2 triumph over Argentina.

That would make 31/10 for them to win by more than one goal worth adding to our Czech Republic vs Nigeria betting predictions.
