BENIN vs NIGERIA, AFCON QUALIFYING, 27.03.2021

As the qualification series for the African Cup of National winds down, Nigeria will be looking to seal their place at the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon. The Super Eagles will be under intense pressure to halt a run of bad results when they trade tackles with the Squirrels who have not lost at home in eight years

BENIN

Benin will go into this duel brimming with optimism as they are within a touching distance of booking a flight to Cameroon for yet another go at the African Cup of Nations.

Michel Dussuyer’s men are second in Group L, only a point adrift of their opponents, Nigeria. And a win for the host will totally change the outlook of the group.

A win for Benin will not be pulling a rabbit out of the hat. In the reverse fixture, Benin gave Nigeria a game and deservedly took the lead before the hosts clawed their way back to win the game. And given the form of the visitors, coupled with the fact that Benin are unbeaten at home in eight years, we might be in for a surprise.

NIGERIA

Nigeria will make a short trip to Cotonou for their penultimate game, needing a solitary point to join the 2021 African Cup of Nations party.

Although they are top of the group with 8 points in the bag, the Super Eagles have had a torrid run lately, failing to win in their last five games. The ghost of the two horrible games against Sierra Leone is still hovering over the team and they will be looking to banish it.

The game in Benin is expected to be closely fought but the Nigerians have enough in their Arsenal to earn the point they need to confirm their place in Cameroon.

Nigeria’s top marksman, Victor Osimhen, is back from injury and he is expected to lead the line from the front along with red hot Kelechi Iheanacho on Saturday.

BETTING TIPS AND PREDICTIONS

So much is at stake for both sides and they will take no prisoners heading into this game. The host will back themselves to give Nigeria a game given their impressive home form. The Squirrels are not averse to attacking and given their performance in the first leg they will take the game to the visitors. Therefore we reckon they will be loads of goals, and we are backing Over 2.5 goals to be returned @2.58 on 1xbet first deposit bonus as our first tip

Another attractive proposition is the Both Teams to Score option. The Super Eagles do not exactly have an impregnable defence and the host will have an impetus to attack. It becomes even more attractive as it is priced @ 2.37 on 1xbet and they are one of the best betting sites in Nigeria.
