Nigeria will lock horns with Egypt in their AFCON Group D opener at the Roumde Adija Stadium with a kick off time today of 4PM.
The Pharaohs will be eyeing a record eighth title, and their first since 2010; while the Super Eagles will look to add to their tally of three AFCON titles. Nigeria will have to do without Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, who withdrew from the squad due to a positive COVID-19 test.
The Pharaohs have a few players ruled out due to COVID-19, but no major concerns ahead of this match. These are two of the best teams in Africa, so this should be an interesting fixture.

Can I watch Nigeria v Egypt?
The Super Eagles have enjoyed a good run of form heading into this tournament; they have won four of their last six games, losing just once in that six game stretch.
This is partly due to their defensive prowess, Nigeria have been really good defensively; they’ve kept three clean sheets in their last six games, conceding just three goals.
As a result of that, Nigeria’s games have mostly been on the low-scoring side; with five of their last six games going below the 2.5 goal margin.
Similarly, Egypt have had their fair share of low scoring games; five of their last six games have gone under 2.5. It’s also worth pointing out that encounters between these sides have mostly been low-scoring, as their last three, and eight of their last nine meetings saw less than three goals scored.
For this reason, we believe that this will be a low-scoring affair.
Is the Nigeria v Egypt on TV?
Despite their affinity for low-scoring games, Nigeria have not had too much trouble finding the net. The Super Eagles have scored in their last three, and five of their last six games. In the same vein, Egypt have scored their fair share of goals; the Pharaohs have found the back of the net in 15 of their last 17 games across all competitions.
These sides have scored a few goals between them in recent meetings, as both teams have scored in three of their last five clashes.
With this in mind, we’re making the prediction that both teams will score today.
Nigeria v Egypt Tip 3: Draw @ 2/1 (3.00)
This looks like an even contest on paper, as both teams are among the favourites to win the title. Both teams have not been easy to beat too; Nigeria have lost just one of their last 12 competitive fixtures, while Egypt have lost just twice in their last 21 games in all competitions.
We should also mention that clashes between these teams tend to end in stalemates; as five of their last 11 meetings ended in draws.
Considering both teams don’t lose often, our final prediction for this game is that the spoils will be shared at the end of regulation time.
