Nigeria vs Equatorial Guinea AFCON Teams

Nigeria vs Equatorial Guinea Head2head

The encounter will be the third meeting between the two nations in recent times, with the Super Eagles winning the three outings.

Equatorial Guinea will look to ride on their impressive display at the AFCON qualifiers, where they finished joint group leaders with Tunisia. While they will be hoping to shock the continent on their fifth appearance in the competition, the Super Eagles are clear favourites in this encounter.

Here are our expert tips on Nigeria vs Equatorial Guinea:

Nigeria to Win

Expectations are high for the West African giants after dominating the AFCON qualifiers, including an aggregate 16:0 win over São Tomé. The Nigerian team had an underwhelming performance at the AFCON 2021, where Tunisia eliminated them in the round of 16.

Boosting the biggest squad on the continent, the Super Eagles will aim to edge over other teams in AFCON groups to become African champions for the fourth time.

With Victor Oshimen and Bonnyface’s attacking power, it is difficult to see Equatorial Guinea winning this match.

Victor Oshimen to Score

The Nigerian striker who plays his club football, Italian side Napoli FC, has become a sensation across Europe.

The 24-year-old striker scored 26 goals in 30 appearances in the 2022/2023 season to become the Italian Serie A top scorer. Oshimen has also been in fiery form for the Super Eagles, scoring 10 goals in the AFCON qualifiers.

With the current form of the Nigerian striker, we favour him to score against Equatorial Guinea.

Over 1.5 Goals

Finding the back of the net has been easy for the Nigerian team; they scored 22 goals in five games during the AFCON qualifiers. They have enough quality in the midfield, like Kelechi Ihaenacho and Alex Iwobi, to create chances for the attackers.

Equatorial Guinea’s defence is not solid enough to stop the Super Eagles’ attacking threat; hence, we predict multiple goals in this game.

Nigeria Analysis

Three-time African Champions Nigeria will aim to have a perfect start by defeating Equatorial Guinea. The Super Eagles will feel they have the squad depth to outclass other AFCON teams to lift the trophy.

Equatorial Guinea Analysis

Equatorial Guinea will hope to defeat the Nigerian national team for the first time in its history. Although they are underdogs, they have enough resilience to cause an upset.
