Tip Reasoning

  • Nigeria scored at least twice in four of their last seven games.
  • Nigeria are unbeaten in 12 of the 14 all-time H2H meetings.
  • Sudan failed to score in seven of their last eight matches.

Super Eagles should soar out of the group

After beating African heavyweights Egypt by a 1-0 scoreline in their opening game, Nigeria now turn their attention to Group D minnows, Sudan.

Nigeria lost just twice in 14 prior meetings with FIFA’s #125 ranked nation (W8, D4) and four of their last five victories against the Falcons of Jediane eclipsed a -1 handicap, suggesting this could be a walk in the park for the Super Eagles.

Victory here will seal qualification from the group, no more than what was expected from a side who reached at least the semi-final stage in 15 of their last 17 AFCON appearances.

End of the line for Sudan?

Sudan’s opening game against Guinea-Bissau was arguably their greatest chance at earning crucial points to qualify from this group, now they face the mammoth task of facing both Nigeria and Egypt, two of CAF’s most fearsome sides.

Perennial strugglers Sudan have not tasted victory in any of their last 12 games, and five of their last seven defeats during that run settled with at least a two-goal margin.

This game does not look like the one in which Sudan will bounce back with aplomb and as such, I predict a comfortable handicap-busting 3-0 victory for Nigeria as they look to book their ticket to the knockout stages.
