Nigeria vs Sierra Leone – On Thursday, Nigeria and Sierra Leone will square off at the Abuja National Stadium in Group A action of the Africa Cup of Nations. With a trip to the continental showpiece on the line, the Super Eagles will try to snap a five-game losing streak and get their campaign back on track. Last time Sierra Leone played was March 29, when they beat Congo 2-1 at the Mardan Sports Complex in a friendly match.

Kallum Cesay, a 19-year-old Tottenham Hotspur forward, put the Leone Stars ahead twice in the second half before Vieljeux Prestige Mboungou scored a late consolation goal from the penalty spot. After a three-game winless streak, John Keister’s men ended it on March 27 when they beat Liberia 1-0 away from home.

While Sierra Leone hopes to win their third match in a row and kick off their AFCON qualifying campaign with a bang, they now face a team that has won all five encounters between the two sides since a 1-0 loss in 2001. When Nigeria and Ecuador met in a friendly match last Friday, they were unable to get their footing and lost 1-0 as a result.

Nigeria vs Sierra Leone – Betting Analysis

Villarreal’s centre back After just three minutes of play, Pervis Estupinan put Gustavo Alfaro’s side ahead 1-0 at the Red Bull Arena. Cyriel Dessers and William Troost-Ekong both scored an own goal to hand Mexico a 2-1 victory on May 25 in a rematch of the first leg of the World Cup qualifier.

Since securing three straight victories in Group D of the 2022 AFCON back in January, Nigeria have gone five games without a win in all competitions, drawing two and losing three. The Nigerian Super Eagles, who are looking for a third consecutive berth at the Africa Cup of Nations, have won four and drew two of their last six qualifying matches.

Nigeria returns to the country where their World Cup qualification hopes were dashed back in March, and they’ll be hoping to reclaim some pride. As much as Sierra Leone will want to keep the momentum going, we’re going with the Super Eagles to win at home.
