Tip Reasoning

  • Ghana failed to win each of their last four games, twice without reply.
  • Nigeria are unbeaten in six of their last seven matches.
  • Nigeria have won three of their four games under Augustine Eguavoen’s stewardship.
  • Nigeria lost just one of the last five H2H meetings within 90 minutes.

A cagey first-leg encounter

Ghana has qualified for three straight World Cup finals prior to the 2018 edition, which still represent all of their participations to date, though there is a huge obstacle in the way of making that four in the form of Nigeria, a nation who have played the showpiece event twice more than their hosts.

Out of sorts Ghana recently appointed esteemed English manager Chris Hughton as their technical director, though it remains to be seen if that move will yield results. Something needs to happen quick, as fans just endured a woeful AFCON campaign in which Ghana failed to win a single game.

As for Nigeria, Augustine Eguavoen has recently taken full-time charge of the national setup after a successful return after four games in caretaker charge (W3, L1). The Super Eagles’ AFCON campaign was significantly better, with a perfect return of wins in the group stage before a brusing round of 16 elimination.

Back the Eagles to soar in Ghana

This game really is an even encounter in all regards except recent form, both nations look for consistency following uncertain spells, but we predict that Nigeria may just about hold the edge in this clash.

As such, we are going for a Nigeria ‘draw no bet’ for the main selection, which is crucial as these games are often tense, low scoring affairs which could very easily end up in a stalemate.

For smaller stakes, we are sticking with a narrowly won 2-1 away victory to set up Nigeria’s home advantage in the second leg nicely.
