Nigeria kicked off their AFCON campaign with an impressive win against Egypt; they dominated from start to finish, and would have scored more than one goal. The Super Eagles have no losses in their last four games, with three wins and a draw; they’ll look to extend that streak to five games today.
Nigeria will qualify for the round of 16 if they win today, and that’s what they’ll try to do.
Sudan escaped defeat by the skin of their teeth against Guinea-Bissau in their AFCON opener; Guinea-Bissau hit the woodwork twice, and couldn’t capitalize on five big chances.
Sudan are now without a win in their last 11 games across all competitions; they’ll hope to snap their unwanted streak as they take on the Super Eagles today.

Fixed odds Predictions : Nigeria to win HT/FT @ 4/6 Bet365
We’ve already established that Sudan have found it difficult to win games; we should also mention that they have a tendency to concede first. Sudan have conceded the first goal in nine of their last 11 games in all competitions; as a matter of fact, they haven’t scored the first goal in any of those 11 games.
On the other hand, Nigeria have a tendency to start strong, and as a result, they usually score first.
The Super Eagles have bagged the first goal in four of their last five matches. Considering Nigeria tend to win games from half-time, while Sudan have a tendency to lose from half-time, we’re making the prediction that Nigeria will win at HT/FT.
Over under Prediction: Under 2.5 total goals @ 4/6 Bet365
Nigeria have been involved in a lot of low-scoring games; this is mostly because of their solid defense.
The Super Eagles have conceded just two goals in their last five games; those five games have all gone below the 2.5 goal margin.
Similarly, Sudan have had their fair share of low-scoring games, three of their last five games have gone under 1.5. This is mostly because of Sudan’s poor goal scoring form; as they haven’t scored a single goal in those five games. It’s worth noting that two of the last three meetings between these teams went under 1.5; and for this reason, we shouldn’t expect too many goals in this match.
