FRANCE - NIGERIA
France is a fantastic team and they shot down Honduras and Switzerland in the groupstage matches, 3-0 and 5-2. In the match against Switzerland it should have been 6-2 as the referee blowed the final whistle during Benzema's shot on goal which gone in. It was clear that France didnt give 100% in their last match vs Ecuador. The didnt have to win. With a goal difference of +6 they were group winner anyway. Furthermore France rested some players in this match. In this game it will be different. Nigeria made it with a bit luck into the final stages and so i think the Europeans wont have any problems to win here. Moreover Benzema will want to join the race for the golden boot and will be hot to score some goals. With results like 8-0 in a preperation match, 3-0 vs Honduras and 5-2 vs Switzerland, France winning with over 2 goals difference is more than possible in my opinion. And i dont think that Nigeria can be compared to Switzerland. France will want to show again that they are one of the title-candidates.
Possible line-up: Lloris – Debuchy, Varane, Sakho, Evra – Cabaye, Matuidi, Pogba – Valbuena, Benzema, Giroud
Nigeria started with a 0-0 against Iran into the World Cup. It was probably the most boring game here till now. In the second match vs Bosnia they showed some good offensive play and shot a goal but the referee didnt give a goal for Bosnia so the match could have ended otherwise. 2-3 in the last match against Argentinia. It was a good game but in my opinion Argeninia with some big mistakes in the defense.
Possible line-up: Enyeama – Ambrose, Omeruo, Yobo, Oshaniwa – Onazi, Mikel – Babatunde, Odemwingie, Musa – Emenike
This odds might terrify some people but there is no reason for. France has the abbility to do this, i´m sure. A team which is well-attuned to each other should win here with at least 2 goals difference against a african team who didnt impressed very well in the group stage.
