Team News
With his winner in Abuja, Balde opened his account on the international stage and we expect the Ajaccio striker should lead the Djurtus attack once again.

Full-back Jefferson Encada is a doubt for the home side after coming off with a late injury last time out, meaning Nanu could take his place on the right side of the back four.

Guinea-Bissau possible starting lineup:
Mendes; Nane, Mane, Sangate, Cande; Nogueira, Semedo; Piqueti, Cassama, Dalcio; Balde

Despite Friday's disappointing result, we expect Paseiro to name a similar starting side at the Estadio 24 de Setembro, meaning the Premier League midfield duo of Alex Iwobi and Wilfried Ndidi should combine at the centre of the park once again.

With Kevin Akpoguma coming off with a 55th-minute injury, 29-year-old Semi Ajayi will push for a starting role, potentially forming the back four with Bright Osayi-Samuel, Calvin Bassey and Zaidu Sanusi.

Victor Osimhen, who has lit up the Serie A this season, was kept at bay last time out, but we expect the Napoli man to lead the Super Eagles attack once again, with Ademola Lookman and Samuel Chukwueze providing support from the flanks.
Nigeria possible starting lineup:
Uzoho; Sanusi, Bassey, Ajayi, Osayi-Samuel; Aribo, Iwobi, Ndidi; Chukwueze, Lookman, Osimhen
Prediction: Guinea-Bissau 0-1 Nigeria
