Nigeria and Germany might have a goal shootout during the match. The country that controls the ball more is more likely to win the game.
These two countries are evenly matched that this game could go into the penalty shootout. Even if it reaches that point or not, Germany still has the slight edge. This is because they have more international experience over Nigeria.
