Nigeria will play Denmark in the second quarter-final that takes place on 13.08, at 22:00 local Brazil time. The tie features the first team which qualified for the knockout rounds, Nigeria, against a Nordic team which did just enough to qualify ahead of Iraq and South Africa from a group which also featured hosts Brazil. Without a doubt, both teams know that they are very close to winning a medal and will do everything they can to do so.

The Nigerians won the most spectacular game of this year’s tournament, a 5-4 victory against Japan on day one. After this awesome game, they followed with another victory over Sweden, only to lose to Columbia after they were sure to qualify for the knockout rounds.
The team showed very different football in all three games and is very hard to predict, both for us betting enthusiasts as for the opposition coaches.
On the other hand, Denmark plays like a typical Nordic team. They like to rely on their strength and physical prowess and less on technique – which is why they can be rudimentary at times. They are surely less gifted than their opponents, but will try to make up using determination and force.
If they are to succeed, they have a chance to fight for their first Olympic football medal in history – a feat they will surely be proud of.
This isn’t the easiest game to predict from our point of view – although we do favor Nigeria for the simple reason that they play better football. They should at least score against Denmark, if not win outright – and at least qualify, even after extra time or penalties.
We believe that the Nordics are content with what they’ve achieved so far, and the 0-4 defeat against Brazil showed their defensive weakness. Overall, Nigeria looks like a good option. Good luck!
