Being able to play with a medal on the table can be seen as a great achievement for the small Carribean team, which has defied all odds to make it this far. They played counter-attacking football all tournament but failed to repeat awesome defensive performances like Greece 2004 or Wales at Euro 2016. They were completely outplayed by hosts Brazil in the semi-finals, losing 6-0 after conceding in the 14th second, the quickest goal in Olympic Football history. On the other side, Nigeria played very good football so far and only lost 0-1 against the Germans in the semi-finals, at the end of a pretty balanced game. They would be very disappointed to leave the tournament without any medal, after a series of great games. The African team’s football was a mix between attack and defense, but can be considered very “German” – direct, strong and quick. From a betting perspective, we see a clear winner of the bronze medal, and that is Nigeria. The Honduras showed their weaknesses and limitations against Brazil, and they shouldn’t be able to pose a threat to the clearly superior Nigerian team. If you want a safer bet, go with Nigeria to score, and if you have a good appetite for risk, go for a handicap win (Nigeria -1). After all, we predicted a handicap win for Brazil in the semi-finals as well, as that went very good.

Betting Tips:

Match Result – Nigeria To Win:  1.67 or 4/6 Handicap – Nigeria  (-1):  2.65 or 33/20
