Tip Reasoning

  • Nigeria lost just one of the last six H2H meetings within 90 minutes.
  • Ghana failed to win each of their last five consecutive matches.
  • Nigeria are unbeaten in seven of their last eight matches.
  • Nigeria have won three of their five games under Augustine Eguavoen.

The Super Eagles could spread their wings

Ghana has qualified for three straight World Cup finals prior to the 2018 edition, which still represent all of their participations to date.

However, 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 them. After failing to win a single game during AFCON, Ghana appointed Chris Hughton as a technical advisor, though that decision is yet to pay dividends.

Augustine Eguavoen has recently taken full-time charge of Nigeria’s national setup after a successful run as caretaker boss. The Super Eagles’ AFCON campaign was significantly better, with a perfect return of wins in the group stage ahead of their elimination.

The Black Stars may not shine so brightly

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, especially after a battling performance in the away first leg.

As such, we are going for a Nigeria win within 90 minutes for the main selection, home advantage could be key in seeing them over the line here as they look to build on that first-leg clean sheet.

For smaller stakes, we are siding with a narrowly won 1-0 home victory to see the Super Eagles fly into the World Cup finals.
