Match preview 📰

Nigeria's unspectacular opening day defeat of tournament debutantes Burundi didn't stretch them to their limit but the challenge of a clash with Guinea might be a little different. Guinea, themselves, will be disappointed with their 2-2 draw with lowly Madagascar and they'll need to improve dramatically to come away from this fixture with anything. 

Nigeria has won their last five AFCON matches but there's hope for Guinea to get on the score sheet here, as five of Guinea’s last six AFCON tournament fixtures have featured both teams scoring. Their issuse might end up keeping the back door closed.

Players to watch 💫

Former Watford striker Odion Ighalo scored just four minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute against Burundi on Saturday. The 30-year-old, who plays for Shanghai Shenhua in China, scored six goals in as many appearances in qualifying. Veteran and skipper John Obi Mikel will be handed the number 10 role for Nigeria to pull the strings behind Ighalo. 

In midfield, there will be an intriguing battle between Liverpool's talented dribbler Naby Keita and Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi, the man that completed the most tackles of any player in the Premier League last season.
