Will Super Eagles have yet another successful football weekend?

Nigeria duo from Leicester City continues to impress

Leicester City look unstoppable in the 2019/2020 Premier League season. Brendan Rodgers is doing a fantastic job with the King Power Stadium outfit, with two Nigeria internationals producing splendid performances in recent weeks. Defensive midfielder Wilfried Ndidi has established himself as a first-team regular at Leicester. The ‘new N’golo Kante’ has been in a thrilling form in the first half of the season, and, no doubt, he is going to play a vital role in Brendan Rodgers’ team in the remainder of the season as well.

Kelechi Iheanacho, on the other hand, made his first Premier League start for the Foxes against Aston Villa. The Super Eagles attacker provided an assist for Jamie Vardy in the 21st minute of the match, while doubling Leicester City’s lead after 41 minutes. Iheanacho found the net with a terrific shot into the left side of the goal after receiving a superb lofted pass from James Maddison. Brendan Rodgers’ charges won the match by four goals to one, with the team extending their winning run in the English top flight to eight games. Given Ayoze Perez’s modest form, there is every chance Kelechi Iheanacho will keep his place in the starting line-up.

Victor for yet another victory

Super Eagles attacker Victor Osimhen is enjoying a very successful season at Lille. The 20-year-old helped les Dogues extend their winning run in the Ligue 1 to three games, scoring the only goal of the match against Brest (1-0). Osimhen made a yard for himself after a precise pass inside the box and slotted the ball into the bottom left corner. The Nigeria striker scored his ninth goal of the season and climbed to the third position in the Ligue 1 goal-scoring chart.

Lille play host to Montpellier on Friday evening, and they are seen as favourites to win the match. Les Dogues are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and you should bear in mind that William Hill offers odds of 6/7 (1.85) on Lille to record their fourth consecutive win in the French top flight. Victor Osimhen was rested in the Champions League game against Chelsea, but the Super Eagles rising star is likely to lead the line for Christophe Galtier’s charges against la Paillade.

Other Super Eagles who were in fine form at the weekend

Nigeria centre-back William Troost-Ekong produced an excellent performance in Udinese’s 1-1 draw with Napoli at Dacia Arena. The Zebrette back-line prevented the Neapolitans from creating too many clear-cut opportunities to score, helping the team pick up vital point from the match.

Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi played full 90 minutes in Everton’s 3-1 win over Chelsea. The Toffees brimmed with confidence on Duncan Ferguson’s debut as new Everton boss, with the team recording their fifth win of the season. The Goodison Park outfit take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Matchday 17, and you should know that the visitors are 7/2 at bet365 to pick up all three points from the game.

Bordeaux attacker Josh Maja, who has only one cap with the Nigeria national team, provided an assist for Yacine Adli in a 3-1 loss to Olympique Marseille, but his teammate Samuel Kalu did not see any action at the weekend

Our Betting Tips for this week fixtures

Leicester City/Leicester City @7/9

David faces Goliath at King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon. High-flying Leicester City aim to melt Liverpool’s advantage in the Premier League standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at relegation strugglers Norwich City. Given the away team’s shaky defence, our sports betting prediction is that Kelechi Iheanacho and Co. are going to extend their winning run in the English top flight to nine games.

Juventus to win & over 2.5 goals @5/6

William Troost-Ekong’s Udinese did well to hold Napoli to a 1-1 draw at the weekend, but the Neapolitans’ form in the first half of the season is anything but good. Napoli sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti on Tuesday evening, and, no doubt, Udinese will have a much bigger fish to fry against Juve. The Bianconeri are eager to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Lazio, meaning that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s clash.

Sevilla to win @7/10

Nigeria international Samuel Chukwueze was in the starting line-up for Villarreal, who played out a goalless draw with Atletico Madrid at their Estadio de la Ceramica. The Yellow Submarine are tough to beat at home, but they have been struggling on the travels of late. Seeing that Javi Calleja’s men are on a three-game losing run on the road in La Liga, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Sevilla’s party at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Los Sevillanos, who have turned their stadium into a real fortress, are eyeing a place in the Champions League, meaning that Sunday’s game is of big importance for Julen Lopetegui’s charges.
