Guinea Bissau vs Nigeria – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Under 2.5 Goals (4/6)

  • Under 2.5 goals landed in each of Nigeria’s first two fixtures in Group A.
  • Nigeria have scored just one goal from open play at AFCON so far.

Nigeria are odds-on favourites to pick up three points against Guinea-Bissau, though their goal-scoring performance at the tournament so far suggests excitement levels should be low. Under 2.5 goals landed in each of the Super Eagles’ first two games and our first Guinea Bissau vs Nigeria prediction anticipates more of the same.

Guinea Bissau vs Nigeria prediction

Guinea Bissau vs Nigeria Team News

Guinea Bissau

Guinea Bissau's AFCON tournament is set to end early after defeats in each of their first two Group A fixtures. Guinea Bissau favour a 4-3-3 formation and they are unlikely to deviate from that set-up in their final group test against Nigeria.

Predicted Lineup for Guinea Bissau: Djoco – Encada, Djalo, Mane, Cande – Semedo, Bikel, Cassama – Rodrigues, Balde, Dju

Nigeria

Nigeria secured what looked like a pivotal victory over host nation Ivory Coast on matchday two at AFCON thanks to a second-half William Troost-Ekong spot kick. The Super Eagles have few injury issues at present, so the same XI could be fielded against Guinea Bissau.

Predicted Lineup for Nigeria: Nwabali – Ajayi, Troost-Ekong, Bassey – Aina, Onyeka, Iwobi, Sanusi – Chukwueze, Osimhen, Lookman

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to Watch – Victor Osimhen

Victor Osimhen opened his account at AFCON on matchday one against Equatorial Guinea, though he mustered three attempts without finding the net against Ivory Coast last time out. Osimhen will be keen to find his range again in Nigeria’s final Group A match against Guinea Bissau on Monday and the Napoli star is sharp enough in the box to convert any opportunity that falls his way.
