Match preview 📰
It's the game nobody wants to play so we are likely to see plenty of changes to the starting XIs when Tunisia and Nigeria go head-to-head in the third-place play-off in Cairo. Tunisia is still recovering from their extra-time semi-final defeat to Senegal while Nigeria is licking their wounds after going out to a Riyad Mahrez injury-time free-kick against Algeria. While Tunisia has proven to be a tough nut to crack, they've struggled to win games in 90 minutes, with only one win out of six in regulation time. Nigeria's defensive record isn't the best, with seven goals conceded in their last four at AFCON.
We're backing a high-scoring clash here.
Team news 💫
Tunisia is expected to rotate heavily. Fringe players like Anice Badri, Ayman Ben Mohamed, Farouk Ben Mustapha and Naim Sliti will hope to benefit from this policy as a result. Nigerian right back Chidozie Awaziem is suspended but aside from him, we expect a similar side from the one that suffered heartbreak against Algeria.
