This is a very important match for both teams. Loser of this game will have almost no chance to advance into the knock-out stage. Nigeria is a slight favourite of this match by the bookmakers' choice. In our opinion, their potential is overrated. Germans are looking better than their opponent and they should record a victory in this match, maybe in overtime.
