Ghana vs Nigeria Free Predictions and Betting Tips
Ghana scored 7 and leaked 3 goals in the Group G of the WCQ while Nigeria netted 9 goals and leaked as many goals as Ghana in the group stage matches. Our best two predictions for this game are as follows:
Under 2.5 @ 1/2 (1.50)
We expect a tough encounter between Ghana and Nigeria on Friday, 25th March 2022. The previous three meetings between these teams didn’t have many goals as only one encounter yielded a goal. The last two meetings ended 0-0. And given the current standings of these teams in the continent, it wouldn’t be another surprise to have a low scoreline on matchday.
Nigeria favourites to win 7/4 (2.75)
Our tipsters have settled on away victory in this fixture. Ghana’s campaign in this year’s AFCON tournament was marred with disorganization and lack of unity. The hosts haven’t won in their last four games while Nigeria has been a formidable outfit in recent games. The visitors won three of their last five matches, two of which were clean sheet wins. Comparing that to Ghana’s three losses and one draw, and no clean sheet within that duration is a good reason to back Super Eagles to win this clash.

Ghana vs Nigeria Clash in World Cup Qualifier Playoffs
The last three meetings, which are the only ones between Ghana and Nigeria didn’t register lots of goals. Both teams have played at the highest level in World Football, which is the FIFA World Cup. Another chance to participate in the competition will be realized through this playoff encounter.
For Ghana, making the most of home support will be critical in this game. However, recent mishaps, especially in the 2022 AFCON means the die may have been cast already with Ghana as the least favourites in this clash. Three losses and one draw for Ghana in the last four games against three wins and one loss for Nigeria in the last four games speaks volumes. However, Ghana has been the historical favourite in this clash, winning once in regular time, once in penalties and a barren draw.
