Ogenekaro Etebo, Lebo Mothiba - South Africa vs. Nigeria
Goal asked you, the readers, to predict who will win Wednesday's Afcon showdown, and the majority have predicted a Super Eagles triumph

A massive 90 percent of Goal readers say Nigeria will triumph over South Afriday on Wednesday evening.

We asked you to register your vote ahead of this evening’s Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final in Cairo, where both sides will hope to earn a semi-final berth.

Bafana Bafana, who were champions in 1996, eliminated hosts Egypt in the Round of 16 and will hop to clip the Super Eagles’ wings.

However, only 10% of voters based in Nigeria are sure Stuart Baxter’s men will come out victorious; while a massive 90% are sure the three-time African kings will progress.

While Nigeria have been scoring goals, they still have to get their combinations right at the back to avoid conceding. They have conceded four goals so far in Egypt.

South Africa on the other hand, have let in two, but they have lacked composure in the final third of the pitch having scored two times so far.

This will be the third encounter between these countries at Afcon, with Nigeria winning both previous times without conceding.
