Super Eagles to win
This is a fixture between two of the most decorated teams in Africa. Nigeria’s Super Eagles has some of the best soccer talents and so is Cameroon’s much-acclaimed squad. However, we think Nigeria has what it takes to win this game going by recent fixtures. A trip to Nigeria will unlikely yield good fruits for the Indomitable Lions who have had a poor run of form in recent games of only one victory, four losses and one draw this year. The hosts have won all their two games this year with a clean sheet. Moreover, Cameroon lost all in the last three trips to Nigeria.
Both Teams to Score: No
We don’t think Cameroon has the firepower to score a goal on the road against Nigeria. The hosting manager has plenty of talents to make the starting eleven. Napoli’s attacker, Victor Osimhen, Villareal’s Samuel Chukwueze, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa are all in contention for the attacking front. Cameroon’s has only scored two goals in the five games this year, which leaves tactician Toni Conceicao in desperate need of attackers.
More than two goals expected
The Indomitable Lions travels to Nigeria with a squad that lacks depth and pulling a win on the road looks almost unlikely. On the other hand, the Super Eagles coach has a squad packed with world-class talents and he should fancy getting lots of goals in this game. Nigeria has kept three clean sheets in their last five games, two of which have been victories. Moreover, the hosts have only failed to score in one of their last five games. A struggling defence puts the Indomitable Lions in a precarious situation, especially after failing to score in three of their last five games, two of which were 4-0 loss at home to Morocco and away loss of 2-0 to Guinea.
Match Preview: Super Eagles Looking to Soar Above Indomitable Lions
Nigeria is the favourites coming into this game. However, it is noteworthy that Cameroon is equally a strong team that boasts of five trophies in Africa’s Nations Cup, two more than Nigeria’s three crowns. Will the Indomitable Lions wake up from slumber?
Nigeria has lots of football talents. With that, the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, should have plenty of options in all positions. Forwards Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Iheanacho, Paul Onuachu, Anayo Iwuala and Ahmed Musa are top prospects to make the starting lineup. Midfielders Wilfred Ndidi, Samuel Chukwueze, Joel Aribo of Rangers FC, Henry Onyekuru of Galatasaray and Oghenekaro Etebo also of Galatasaray should give Gernot Rohr a selection dilemma on Friday. The defence is also packed with talented players such as Leon Balogun of Rangers FC, Semi Asayi of West Bromwich Albion, Wiliam Troost-Ekong of Watford and Ola Aina of Fulham. The German coach averages 1.77 points per match and should be a difficult match for the visiting manager, Toni Conceicao.
For the Indomitable Lions, playing against Nigeria is a chance for Toni Conceicao to redeem his dwindling confidence on the touchline. The Portuguese tactician averages 1.62 points per match. However, a poor run of form in recent games has called to question his future with the national team. The visitors have been poor in the final third. Toni Conceicao has limited options in the attacking position in Vincent Aboubakar of Besiktas, Clinton Mua Njie of Dinamo Moscow and Ngnowa Yre available. Toni Conceicao should bank on plentiful options in the midfield to protect his leaking defence on match day.
