Nigeria – South Africa : Preview & Prediction
Nigeria, triple winner of the CAN (1980, 1994, 2013), is found in two matches of a new CAN final. The Super Eagles scored a stunning 1 / 8th-round triumph over Cameroon (3-2) as they were led 2-1 to the hour mark. This is the forward Ighalo, author of a double and that total 3 goals in this competition, which put his team in the right way before Iwobi seals the success of Super Eagles. Nigeria won its third match after Burundi (1-0) and Guinea (1-0) and posted only 1 surprise setback against Madagascar (0-2).South Africa, which has only won Nigeria once in 11 attempts, will find it difficult to score a second feat after their incredible qualification against Egypt (1-0) in the previous round. Very lucky throughout the game, South Africa is therefore in the quarter-finals having lost 2 games in pool against Côte d’Ivoire (0-1) and Morocco (0-1). The Bafana Bafana, who won only a CAN in 1996, should see their way stop in quarter!
The direct confrontations turn to the advantage of Nigeria: 6 wins, 4 draws against 1 loss only.
Nigeria has 3 wins against 1 loss in this CAN.
Nigeria remains on 1 stunning success against Cameroon (3-2) in the 1/8 round of finals.
South Africa has already lost twice in this CAN.
South Africa defeated Egypt (1-0) in the previous round despite a clear domination of the Pharaohs.
Nigeria, more competitive than South Africa, should be able to reach the last four of this CAN and dream of a 4th title in this competition. South Africa should not be able to stop the Super Eagles!
