Nigeria let a victory slip on March 25 and it might cost them the place in the final stage of the Africa Cup of Nations. Today’s visitors are second with 5 points and only victory over Egypt can help them take over the first spot in the group as neither Chad of Tanzania appear as competitive sides. Nigeria national team show solid results on the road recently, winning one, drawing six and losing three matches out of last ten on the road. However, a draw in the upcoming match would be as bad as a defeat.
The history of the head-to-heads consists of 9 matches and Egypt avoid losing any of recent four of these matches. Another interesting fact is that the visitors of these head-to-heads never won a single match. All these facts in addition to home-field advantage and good mood of Egypt side after lucky escape in Nigeria are in favor of the hosts who shouldn’t lose today as well.
Prediction for the match: Egypt to win with +0.5 Asian handicap.
