Our Top Best Nigeria vs Sudan AFCON 2022 Predictions
Nigeria vs Sudan sets the stage for AFCON 2022 Group D playoffs quest. It is either you win or risk getting dumped out of the competition at the group stage. And while third-place will still guarantee teams a chance to secure a place in the next round, this fixture promises a lot of tension on matchday. Read our analysis of the best two picks for this game below.
Nigeria to win first-half @ 33/50 (1.66)
We are tipping the Super Eagles to go ahead at the break in this fixture against Sudan. They won two of the three previous meetings with Sudan and should look to stem that dominance in this game. The West African country also comes to this game with a four-match unbeaten run, three of which were clean sheet victories. On the other hand, Sudan’s barren draw in the first match of the tournament was a fair result for them, especially after losing thrice in a row before that game.
Under 2.5 @ 3/4 (1.75)
The second AFCON 2022 prediction for Nigeria vs Sudan is under 2.5. Most games in this tournament have ended with fewer than three goals so far. Sudan’s 0-0 outcome against Guinea-Bissau in the first game was a clear sign of their defensive prowess. On the other hand, Nigeria kept Egypt from scoring by ensuring Mohammed Salah had limited chances in the first game. Sudan will most likely deploy a stronger defence in this game and should deny Nigeria scoring opportunities. It is why we are tipping fewer than three goals at full-time.

Match Preview: Nigeria Advantaged Ahead of AFCON Fixture against Sudan
Nigeria hopes to build on a 1-0 victory over Egypt in the first game of AFCON 2022 match. The Super Eagles are currently leading the pack in Group D with a two-point gap ahead of second-placed Guinea-Bissau and third-placed Sudan. A win in this fixture should get the Super Eagles one foot inside the playoffs. But we expect a tough game against Sudan. After losing four out five previous matches, Sudan put up a defensive petformance against Guinea-Bissau in the first game of the competition.
Sudanese will play against Nigerians for the fourth time. They won the first encounter in AFCON 2014 qualifiers but lost the next two meetings. Will they put up a solid defence yet again or go all out to score? How these teams will lineup for this game should have a big impact on their performance on matchday.
Nigeria predicted lineup: Okoye, Troost-Ekong, Aina, Sanusi, Omeruo, Ndidi, Aribo, Chukwueze, Simon, Awoniyi and Iheanacho.
Sudan predicted lineup: Abou, Eifadni, Nemer, Karshoum, Mohamedein, Omer, Al-Rasheed, Khidir, Omer, Hamed and Abdelrahman.
