Guinea-Bissau vs Nigeria: Match Preview and Prediction

Guinea Bissau vs Nigeria:  Nigeria appeared tough to beat in the tournament’s first two games. The previous three games this month saw Guinea-Bissau concede twelve goals. The weak Guinea-Bissau defense could give Nigeria’s most dangerous striker, Victor Osimhen, plenty of space to score.

Nigeria can secure the top spot in Group A of the 2024 African Cup of Nations on Monday afternoon when they play Guinea-Bissau in the third round. The 1-0 win over hosts Ivory Coast four days ago moved the Super Eagles closer to first place in the group.

It was a cagey game with few openings. William Troost-Ekong’s second-half penalty gave Nigeria the win. Nigeria has been tough to break down in the competition, but Portuguese manager Jose Peseiro may be pleased with his team’s defensive performances in the first two games.

This match is terrible for Guinea-Bissau. Thursday’s 2-4 loss against Equatorial Guinea hurt. Team Baciro Cande got no points after losing 0-2 to hosts Ivory Coast on day one. The last three encounters saw Equatorial Guinea lose 12 goals, including a 2-6 loss to Mali in a pre-tournament friendly this month.
