Prediction for the match Guinea-Bissau – Nigeria on 19/01/2022
Guinea-Bissau – Nigeria: personal meetings
National teams of Guinea-Bissau and Nigeria at the official level will meet each other for the first time.
The Guinea-Bissau national team is competing in the Africa Cup of Nations for the third time in its existence, having previously failed to make the playoffs. The Guineans had one point after two rounds, having played on zero with Sudan before losing to Egypt. The Guineans simply need a win in the last encounter. It will be difficult to secure a result, not least since the national team has failed to score in the past six encounters.
The Nigerians have come to the African Cup, which they won three times, in great form and seem to be one of the main contenders for victory. In the starting round, they beat the group’s favorite – the Egyptians, 1:0. Following the results of the match against Sudan – 3:1 – the problem of withdrawal from the group was resolved. The Nigerians have only surrendered two goals in their past five encounters.
Guinea-Bissau – Nigeria: injuries and disqualifications
Covid was identified in two of Guinea-best Bissau’s players, Mendes and Gomis, before to the match against Egypt. In addition, Mimito, Nana, and Semeda, who are all injured, will not be able to participate. Unlike its opponent, the Nigerian national team is injury-free.
Forecast for Guinea-Bissau-Nigeria
The class gap between the sides is enormous – the Nigerian squad must finish the group stage with a perfect score, despite the fact that a draw would suit the favourite.
