Betting tips & odds comparison 09.06.2022 Nigeria - Sierra Leone

Betting Tip for matchday 1 of the 2022-2023 Qual. Africa Cup of Nations between Nigeria and Sierra Leone. The game will be played at Abuja National Stadium (Abuja, Nigeria) on 09.06.2022 at 18:00.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will begin their quest for  the AFCON qualification slot when they host Sierra Leone at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

The Eagles were dismal at the last African Cup of Nations and failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after failing to get past Arch rivals Ghana.

They have an opportunity to start on a clean slate with a new man, Jose Peseiro at the helm of his first competitive game.

NIGERIA 

The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) reacted swiftly by the disappointing outing of the Super Eagles in Cameroon and the failure to make it to Qatar by appointing Portuguese manager, Jose Peseiro.

His reign hasn’t quite taken off the way Nigerians would have wanted, losing two friendly matches in quick succession to Mexico and Ecuador. Although in those games, he fielded an under strength teams in both fixtures with some established stars missing out to various issues.

However, most of the senior players who missed the tour in the US are now back in the fold and jostling for places.

We have a long list of sure straight wins for tomorrow at no cost to you.

The home side have what could be described as an unfinished business having failed to beat their fellow West Africans in their last two meetings.

SIERRA LEONE 

The Lone Stars will be hyped for this fixture having successfully put in two decent performances against the hosts in their last two meetings. Last time they visited Nigeria, they came back from a four goal deficit to restore parity.

They didn’t also perform well at the AFCON getting dumped out in the first round but they will be proud of their fighting spirit.

In their last match, a friendly against Congo in March, John Keister’s earned a 2-1 victory. With that in mind, the visitors will be hopeful of another fine performance in Nigeria.

A win is highly unlikely but a win against Nigeria who will be without their fans will make three wins on the bounce.

NIGERIA VS SIERRA LEONE BETTING PREDICTIONS

Jose Peseiro will be under pressure to get his reign off to the right start to assuage the feelings of and ingratiate himself with the locals.

The Eagles have not won in their last five matches and only a win will calm frayed nerves.

Although their performance in recent times doesn’t suggest it would be an easy ride. The Lone Stars have been square at half time in three of their last matches and they could hold the Eagles to a first half draw.
