The match

Nigeria was the only nation to win all group matches at the 2021 AFCON and go to the knockout stages as one of the favorites to win the title. They will be facing Tunisia in the last 16, with the two nations coming off contrasting fortunes in the first round. Nigeria wrapped up a fine first round with a 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau, their second clean sheet in three opening matches of the competition. They only conceded one goal in the three group games, and that was from a penalty, against Sudan. In terms of confidence, Nigeria will definitely be high, going to the game unbeaten in six and they aim at doing better than they did in 2019, getting to the semis and finishing third. In their last six matches, Nigeria have four clean sheets and in 10 AFCON matches, they have eight wins and two losses.

This will be a rematch of the third place playoff in 2019, as Nigeria beat Tunisia 1-0. Going to this game, Tunisia will be eyeing revenge, but their run in this competition places them as underdogs here. They managed just one win at the group stage, and lost twice, though one of their losses was marred with calamitous officiating. Ahead of this game, Tunisia suffered a loss to one of the tournament’s minnows, Gambia, who are playing in their first ever AFCON finals. They will have to do much better against this Nigeria side that has brought to the competition one of the best balanced teams. Ahead of this game, Tunisia’s only win in the last four matches was against Mauritania, and they’ve failed to score in three of the four matches. At AFCON finals, Tunisia have four losses in five matches, and have failed to score in those four losses.

Key Statistics

  • Tunisia have four losses in the last five AFCON matches.
  • Nigeria have eight wins in their last 10 AFCON matches.
  • Nigeria are unbeaten in their last six meetings with Tunisia.
  • Nigeria are unbeaten in their last six matches ahead of this.
  • Tunisia have failed to score in three of their last four matches.

The bet of our experts

Nigeria have had a very strong run in this competition. They go to this game on a confident footing having won all three group games, and gaining six more points than Tunisia managed. They have also not lost to Tunisia in the last six meetings and here they meet a Tunisia side that hasn’t been very confident in attack. Back Nigeria to win this and progress.
