The Super Eagles will welcome Lesotho in their sixth and final game of the 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon. The game will mark the return of the Eagles to Lagos for the first time in close to two decades for their first competitive game.
The game is essentially a dead rubber as the hosts have booked their place and Lesotho out of the reckoning and firmly to the bottom of Group L.Continue reading to enjoy our betting prediction.
Nigeria have booked their place in the continental showpiece, but the games hold extra importance for the team because they are making their first competitive appearance in Lagos for the first time in almost twenty years. The fixture also provides Gernot Rohr with an opportunity to ring changes in his team and give players who have been on the fringes chance to prove their mettle.
Newcomer, Anayo Iwuala, impressed when he came on as a substitute against Benin and he is in with a shout for a starting berth. Semi Ajayi, Oghenekaro Etebo and Tyrone Ebuehi have out of the team in recent times, but this game is a chance to impress again.
Regardless of the team Gernot Rohr sends out, the Super Eagles are the favourite and this should be a stroll in the park for the West Africans.
Lesotho are the whipping boys of Group L and they are still in search of their first win in the qualification series and against Nigeria. The visitors have no hopes of qualifying as they are rooted to the bottom of the group with a paltry three points.
Although the Southern Africans are no longer in contention, they still have pride to play for. In the reverse fixture, they gave the Nigerians a scare finding the back of the net twice, but the Nigerians held their nerves for a win.
The visitors will cling on and draw inspiration from that spirited performance when file out against Nigeria on Tuesday.
The home side are the favourite to finish off qualification in grand style and maintain their unbeaten run against Lesotho. The Eagles have all impetus to attack and we expect them to go all out.
