Nigeria and Ghana will face each other in the second leg of their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification – CAF Third Round tie this week. The match will be held at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 6pm UK time on Tuesday.

Nigeria

Nigeria are an African powerhouse, but there is a chance that they may not qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar this year. Augustine Eguavoen’s side played out a goalless draw with Ghana away from home in the first leg at Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, Ashanti, and they will have to step up their game in the second leg, even though they will have home advantage.

Team News:

Ademola Lookman could come in for Moses Simon.

Ghana

Ghana, like Nigeria, are also giants in African football, and they will be determined to progress to the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar. Otto Addo’s side will have their work cut out in the second leg, but they should head into the match with confidence and optimism.

Team News:

Thomas Partey will start in midfield.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Nigeria have drawn their last 2 World Cup qualifiers.
  • Ghana have won 3 of their last 6 World Cup qualifiers.
  • Nigeria have lost 1 of their last 6 World Cup qualifiers.
  • Ghana have lost 3 of their last 6 competitive games.
  • Nigeria have lost 1 of their six competitive games.

Conclusion

Although Nigeria are at home, Ghana could just about eke out a win.
