Under 2.5 Goals

Benin vs Nigeria prediction

The race for the 2026 FIFA World Cup in the African Continent continues this week as Benin will be taking on Nigeria in the 4th qualification round of Group C at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan. The Cheetahs were off to a poor start in their qualification campaign after failing to record a win in their opening group games. These results leave them at the rock bottom of the group with just a point claimed via a draw from a total of 3 matches, and as it is now their ambition to feature in their maiden FIFA WC is in jeopardy.

Meanwhile, the road to the World Cup has indeed been filled with challenges and disappointments for the 2023 AFCON finalists, Nigeria. However, they still have the chance to rejig their WC dreams and possibly wrap up the year as leaders of Group C with a chance of finishing things off from an easy angle in the next round of qualification.

These Nations are mostly known for their doggedness when it comes to defending and this matchup between them coming at a time when there’s a big need for points, only the usual caginess that comes from matches involving these two comes to mind. Therefore, Our Benin vs Nigeria prediction is Under 2.5 Goals and we recommend the Under 2.5 Goal market.
