The second leg of this double header game will be taking place on Tuesday 29th March, 2016.

The super eagles of Nigeria forced a 1-1 draw in Kaduna, after a late minute leveller from Egypt’s winger Salah cancelled out Etebo’s early second half strike. The Pharaohs sits on top of Group G with 7 points, two points points clear of Tuesday’s visitors.

Form Comparison

The Pharaohs form in the on going qualification have been flawless. The young Egyptian team have only dropped point once, and that came in their Friday game with Nigeria which ended in a score draw.

Nigeria on the other hand have also failed to loss a game in their first 3 qualification clashes. The Super Eagle however drew 2 of their games which put them, 2 points behind the group leaders and a point ahead of Tanzania who sits 3rd on the log.

Egypt: Predicted Line-Up (4-4-2)

Ahmed: Gabar, Hegazy, Rabiea, Tolba: El Said, Ibrahim, Elneny, Hassan: Salah, Koka.

Nigeria: Predicted Line-Up (4-4-2)

Ikeme: Ambrose, Godfrey, Amuzie, Abdullahi: Mikel, Etebo, Musa, Moses, Iwobi: Ighalo.

Egypt Vs Nigeria: Head-to- Head-Stats

The two side have now met a record 17 times with the super eagles claiming 7 victories, losing 5, and the remaining 5 ending in a draw.

The Super has however failed to claim the maximum point against the Pharaohs since their 1-0 triumph at the African Cup of Nations in 1990. Six matches (including 2 international friendly) meetings have happened after that victory, with 3 ending in a draw and the other 3 ending as a victory for the Pharaohs.

Egypt Vs Nigeria: Prediction

The current captain of the Nigeria national team in his reaction after the game, is very optimistic his side will get all the maximum point in Egypt. The taste of an Afcon atmosphere is most have for both teams. Egypt went a Afcon extinction after they failed to qualify for the last 3 edition having 3 Championship in row.Nigeria also failed to qualify for the last edition after winning the 2013 edition in South Africa.

Therefore, both teams pressure of getting the maximum point will be very high, which will make me settle for another score draw.
