Nigeria – Guinea, African Cup Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NIGERIA - GUINEA
Nigeria will be without some key figures such as Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho. At the same time, John Obi Mikel is here again and will be leading his team again. Definitely Nigeria is expected to finish first in the group, but they did not play well against Burundi, although they won. They made a lot of mistakes and allowed shots to their post relatively easily, so now that should not happen.
Guinea barely reached the draw against Madagascar after they first led and then were turned, they had to score once more to finish 2-2. Guinea’s team has qualities, and some very strong players like Sylla, Diwara, are taking part in it. The problem is that lately they can’t get the right rhythm and are in bad shape, as hesitant defense is what ruins them.
Naby Keita, who plays for Liverpool and is the most potential player in Guinea, entered as a substitute in the last game, but he was injured for some time and even the staff of the reds were not happy that he was going to the tournament at all, cause he should rest. Accordingly, his condition is not particularly good, and he does all the work in the midfield for Guinea. At the same time, Nigeria has players like Ighalo, Iwobi and Ndidi, who have a lot of experience and class gained in the Premier League. We give an advantage to the eagles and our forecast here is Nigeria to win either half at 1.56.
- Guinea has no win in 6 consecutive games
