Nigeria vs Burkina Faso Prediction 27 March 2017

Tournament: International Friendlies
Location: Godswill Akpabio International Stadium
Match date: 27.03.2017 at 20:00

On March 27 2017 at 20:00 in the regular international friendly game Nigeria national team plays against Burkina Faso national team.

Nigeria national team has been through some really difficult periods and yet they still managed to make it to the final part of the World Cup in 1994, 1998 and 2014 and even made it to the round of 16 of the World Cup finals. As for the current qualifiers, Nigeria have already played two games in it and gained the sixth place in it. So, now they are deservedly on the first place of the Group B.

As for Burkina Faso, they have never taken part in the final parts of the World Cups. Yet, they were really successful at the African Cup of Nations where they have been eleven times. Their most successful result was the second place at the CAN in 2013. The draw in the match against South Africa and the victory against Cape Verde make Burkina Faso the leaders of their group at the third stage of the World Cup in Russia.

There have been 18 matches played since 1978 between the teams. Nigeria won most of them which is six matches while the teams drew twice. Anyway, considering the huge advantage of Nigeria in the history of the head-to-heads of the teams, we think that Nigeria will manage to avoid a loss. Even though the upcoming game is going to be a friendly one, we still think that neither of the competitors will be trying to save energy and agree to draw.
