Alex Iwobi - South Africa vs. Nigeria
Previous outings between these two rivals have featured lots of scoring action and punters should expect another intense and entertaining encounter

Nigeria and South Africa lock horns at the Cairo International Stadium for their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final match on Wednesday night.

The Super Eagles eliminated defending champions, Cameroon, in the Round of 16 as they continue their pursuit of a fourth African title.

Despite not winning any of their last five outings against Bafana Bafana, Gernot Rohr’s men boast a better head-to-head record (W6 D5 L2). They also recorded a 4-0 victory over the 1996 Afcon champions in their last meeting in this competition way back in 2004. Another victory is priced at odds of (1.95) with bet365.

Putting their uninspiring Group Stage performance behind, Stuart Baxter inspired his side to a 1-0 victory over tournament favourites and host nation, Egypt, in their last knock-out match. They are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Nigeria (W1 D4) and will be optimistic of causing another upset with a win at the end of regulation time, valued at odds of  (4.33) with the same bookies.

These two sides have drawn four of their last five outings. A similar outcome is priced at (3.10).

Moreover, Nigeria and South Africa have scored in three of their last four head-to-head meetings. The possibilty of that happening at the Cairo International Stadium is offered at odds of (2.50) with bet365.
