Betting & Match Odds
Senegal are favourites to win this at 2.30 on Bet365 , while Nigeria sit at odds of 3.60, and a draw is priced at 2.80.
Senegal are enjoying a fantastic run in the championship so far as they finished as group winners with seven points.
Under the tutelage of coach Youssouph Dabo, the Young Lions of Teranga - who have not conceded a goal in this championship - will be hoping to beat a Nigeria side that have only shown glimpses of quality.
Having lost to the United States in the second match of this year's tournament, Nigeria were deemed dead and buried until Muhamed Tijani struck against Ukraine to send them through.
The two nations had been tipped to go far in Poland, especially after Senegal reached the semifinal in 2015, but only one team can progress to the quarterfinals now that they have been pitted against each other in the last 16.
Paul Aigbogun is under immense pressure following his team's slow start to the tournament, but he would not want to lose to an African team at the U20 World Cup.
Avoiding this record would require him to get his tactics and team selection right.
Ikouwem Utin is the captain of the side, but Aigbogun will need to utilise players like Henry Offia and Kingsley Michael properly and model his game-plan around them to topple the Young Lions.
Senegal have many players to rely on and the team’s leading scorer, Amadou Sagna, has the ability to lift the team with his speed, trickery and eye for goal.
