Gernot Rohr’s men have churned out impressive displays lately and will be expected to be in top form when they clash with Mladen Krstajic’s side

Nigeria square off with Serbia for an international friendly game at the Hive Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Super Eagles have continued to soar under the guidance of German tactician Gernot Rohr having only lost one game since he took over the reins of affairs, helping them to finish at the summit of Group B during the World Cup qualifiers.

Despite missing influential captain, John Mikel Obi on Friday, they continued their preparation for the 2018 Fifa World Cup on a flying note by upsetting Robert Lewandowski’s led Poland 1-0 in Wroclaw, thanks to Victor Moses’ strike from the penalty spot.

No doubt, the victory will boost their morale going into this tie, more importantly coming few months after stunning the runners-up at Brazil 2014 World Cup Argentina.

Though this will be their first meeting with Mladen Krstajic’s men, they should come out on top at the price of (2.60) with LionsBet.

Both sides cancelling each other out at the end of 90 minutes of action is available at a juicy (3.15).

Serbia equally had an impressive qualifying campaign as they topped Group D of the European section. However, weeks after securing their berth to the global tournament, Slavoljub Muslin was sacked as the coach of the side and replaced by Krstajic.

Since then, they have only won once in their last three games including a 2-1 defeat to Morocco on Friday in Turin. Nevertheless, they will have to be at their best to return to winning ways with the same betting firm offering (2.60) for that.
