Team News

Nigeria
Ghana
  • Maduka Okoye may again miss the meeting with Ghana, so Francis Uzoho could keep his place between the sticks.
  • Augustine Eguavoen may be tempted to go with an unchanged XI, but does have plenty of options on the bench.
  • Emmanuel Dennis, Ademola Lookman and Frank Onyeka were among those to come off the bench in the second half last week.
  • Otto Addo may name an unchanged XI for the trip to Nigeria, particularly as they were able to grind out a 0-0 draw.
  • The experienced Denis Odoi would therefore keep his place at right-back at the expense of Andy Yiadom.

Prediction

  • Nigeria were unable to break the Ghana resolve last week, but with the second leg played in front of a full house at the MKO Abiola Stadium, fans are expecting the Super Eagles to finish the job.
  • Ghana's 0-0 draw on Friday means they have failed to win any of their five games in 2022, losing three times. The last three meetings between the pair have now finished 0-0.
  • Nigeria haven't beaten their rivals since 2006, however that record may just come to an end on Tuesday.
