Free Predictions Nigeria vs Ghana by Football Whispers
The last three duels between Nigeria and Ghana ended 0-0 in regular time. After a tough duel in the first leg of this year’s WCQ that ended in a stalemate of 0-0, we expect another thrilling encounter between the Super Eagles and Ghana’s Black Stars on 29th March 2022. Our two best predictions for this game are as follows:
Nigeria will score first @ 22/25 (1.88)
Nigeria’s Super Eagles has been a formidable opponent in this fixture against Ghana’s Black Stars. The visitors have been the dominant side in this duel, bagging two wins and two draws in previous four meetings. However, only one of those wins was in regular time. Three barren draw and a 1-0 scoreline in Ghana’s favour means this could be another difficult game between two of Africa’s best teams. We don’t think this game will yield more than two goals but the host will most likely be on the score first.
Nigeria to win @ 11/10 (2.10)
Both Nigeria and Ghana registered two shots on target in the first leg. While Ghana dominated the first half, Nigeria came back stronger to dominate the second half. However, strong defensive approaches from both ends mean both teams had limited scoring chances. We expect the Super Eagles to make the most of this second leg on home soil to bag all the points.

The first leg ended with both teams suffering injury casualties. Nigeria lost Samuel Chukwueze and Bonke Innocent, two of the most influential players for Super Eagles. That alone should be a big blow for the hosts ahead of this game. However, Nigeria has plenty of talent in its squad, so there should be a good replacement for the two players.
On the other hand, Ghana’s Felix Afena-Gyan was hauled off with an injury in the first leg.
Nigeria predicted lineup: Uzoho,Aina, Balogun, Sanusi, Troost-Ekong, Aribo, Etebo,Simon, Iheanacho, Dennis and Osimhen.
