Portugal are looking to jet off to the World Cup on a positive note when they host Nigeria in a friendly match in Lisbon on Thursday. The Europeans are in the same World Cup group as Ghana, which gives the friendly game more context as it will serve as preparation for a similar playing pattern.

Nigeria missed out on qualifying for Qatar 2022 after losing to Ghana via the away goal rule. However, the Super Eagles continue preparation for the AFCON qualifiers, and this friendly game will allow Jose Peseiro to test-run some new players for the team.

Even though this is a friendly game, pride is at stake for both teams. Portugal will hope to win comfortably to promote confidence in the team as they prepare to take on the world. Meanwhile, for Nigerian football fans, every game counts, which is why the Super Eagles will look to get something from this game to get the fans to believe in the team again.

Under 2.5 goals available at 2.10 odds

But if that is too risky for you, then try betting on Portugal to win at 1.27 odds because they have won four of their last five home games.

Portugal’s last five games have been in the UEFA Nations League. They have won three times and lost twice in those games, with two of those victories coming at home.

Although Portugal’s last home game was in front of their home fans and they lost to Spain. However, they have won their last three friendly games.

Nigeria, on the other hand, are yet to rise from the disappointment of missing out on Qatar 2022. The Super Eagles have lost all four friendly games since their draw against Ghana in Abuja, with their last set of victories coming against Sierra Leone and São Tomé and Príncipe in the AFCON qualifiers.

Cristiano Ronaldo will miss out due to illness, according to head coach Fernando Santos. However, Portugal have a star-studded squad with options everywhere in the team. There are no injury casualties as we expect all their stars to feature in this one, with the in-form Goncalo Ramos, leading the attack alongside Otavio and Rafael Leao.

For Nigeria, star forward Victor Osimhen has withdrawn from the squad after picking up an injury at the weekend while playing for Napoli. Orlando Pirates defender Olisah Ndah has also pulled out due to injury. Cyriel Dessers and Chidozie Awaziem have been called upon as replacements.
