Match preview 📰
Nigeria kickstarted their AFCON 2019 campaign with a thrilling 3-2 win over defending champions Cameroon, and that result will surely provide them with a much-needed confidence boost. They trailed 2-1 with 62 minutes on the clock but led 3-2 a mere four minutes later. Speaking of confidence boosts, South Africa shocked the world with a 1-0 win over Egypt courtesy of a late Thembinkosi Lorch winner.
Seeing as though all of South Africa's matches at this tournament have featured under 2.5 goals, we feel confident backing that outcome here. In fact, all of their matches have ended 1-0 to either side.
Key men 💫
Prolific striker Odion Ighalo will lead the line for Nigeria alongside the lightning-quick Ahmed Musa, once of Leicester City. Ighalo scored 40 times in 100 appearances for Watford in the Premier League so he certainly knows his way to the goal. Brighton's Percy Tau scored four goals and bagged an assist in six qualifiers, proving his importance to the Bafana cause in the leadup to AFCON.
