14/08/2016 02:30 BST – Croatia v Nigeria – Betting Tips
Third plays sixth in this game, and while this may not be the most exciting game on paper, it should be a match that sees both teams fighting hard for the win. Nigeria are the only team in the group without a win so far and while that is likely to continue in this match, you cannot rule them out.
Croatia will definitely fancy their chances of progressing and they defeated Brazil with a big showing in their last outing. Bojan Bogdanović delivered 33 points in that game and he is likely to be one of the key players in this game as Croatia look to provide themselves with the platform to progress into the knockout round.
Nigeria were edged out by Spain in their most recent game and it was another example of Nigeria working hard but having little to show for their efforts by the end of the game. The Nigerians were led by Chamberlain Oguchi who provided 24 points in the loss. If he can deliver a similar performance in this game, there may be a chance that Nigeria will finally get something to celebrate in Rio.
