18:00 EAT 05/07/2019
Super Eagles - Nigeria vs. Guinea
Things have kicked into gear for the two African giants in the second-half and could very well go that way in Alexandria once again

It’s a clash of next-door neighbours as Nigeria and Cameroon renew their rivalry in the Africa Cup of Nations Round 16 at the Alexandria Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Super Eagles were expected to top Group B but surprisingly finished second after losing 2-0 to debutants Madagascar.

Such a slip-up can’t be excused here and bet365 places odds of (2.50), for the three-time Afcon champions to claim bragging rights within 90 minutes.

For the reigning champions, they finished level on points with Ghana in Group F. It has been a tough ride so far for Clarence Seedorf’s men, but they can take solace in the fact they are unbeaten so far in Egypt and are (3.10) with the same firm to coast to victory.

Two draws have been recorded in the previous six Afcon meetings between these two, who have eight continental titles between them.

A third one in seven is valued at (2.90).

One thing common to Nigeria and Cameroon at the ongoing Afcon is getting their goals after half-time. This was so in Nigeria’s victory over Burundi and Guinea, while the same applied in the Indomitable Lion’s opening 2-0 win against Guinea-Bissau.

Most goals coming in the second-half in Alexandria is offered at (2.20) with bet365.
