Previous meetings between these old foes have been cagey,and punters should expect a similar outcome in the Egyptian capital

Tunisia face Nigeria in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) third/fourth place match at Al-Salam Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Super Eagles recorded their second defeat in this edition when they lost to Algeria in the semi-finals, which ended their aspirations of winning a fourth Afcon title. Nevertheless, they have won four out of their last six matches with a single goal-margin and would be looking to finish as the third-best team in this competition over the Tunisians.

Gernot Rohr’s men will be gunning for a victory in this encounter, valued at odds of (2.60) with bet365.

The Carthage Eagles are undefeated at the end of regulation time in their last six matches (W1 D5). They lost their place in the final when they conceded late in extra-time to Senegal in the other semi-final. Alain Giresse’s side has recorded three victories in their last 12 meetings with Nigeria, and are tipped to come out victorious at odds of (2.90) with the same bookies.

Tunisia and Nigeria have shared the spoils in their last four head-to-head meetings. Their last two meetings in Afcon have been settled via penalty shootouts, with each team prevailing once apiece. A stalemate at fulltime is priced at odds of (3.00) with bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
