They both have never faced off each other across any of the competitions, marking this upcoming to be their first ever encounter.
Guinea Bissau vs Nigeria Prediction
Guinea Bissau has to win in order to get anything out of the AFCON. They are at the third spot on Group D but are at the bottom of the Ranking of Third- placed teams. Yet to gain a win, they only have a point after their first draw against the 4th placed Sudan.
Djurtus made an exit from World Cup Qualifiers after losing two games. Morocco was the only team which passed on to the third stage of qualifiers. Their last WC qualifiers was scheduled against Sudan which ended in a goal-less draw.
Nigeria won both the games on the previous 2 fixtures acquiring all 6 points, leading the group. They won against Egypt and Sudan scoring a total of 4 goals while conceding once. They can even play for a draw to finish at the top spot.
Their more recent scorelines show that quality has been evident in Nigeria’s defense. They have have kept it tight, resulting in the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their past 6 matches stands at only 3.
A win for Guinea-Bissau will put them in the frame for consideration among one of the best third placed finishers in case Egypt avoids a defeat against bottom side, Sudan.
They haven’t scored a single goal but they have 3 clean sheets from their last 4 matches. They are coming from a 1-0 loss to Egypt marking their 4th straight game to produce under 2.5 goals.
Nigeria has scored more than 2 goals in three of their last five matches. At AFCON, the Super Eagles are a more successful nation than Guinea-Bissau. Therefore we predict a win for the much under no pressured Nigeria win a clean sheet.
