Predictions 02 – 05.02.2024

Nigeria vs Angola | Africa Cup of Nations

02/02/2024 17:00

Prediction: 2-1

In the first quarter-final of the Africa Cup of Nations, Angola and Nigeria will face off. Both teams have performed impressively, winning three out of four matches and drawing one, securing their places in the quarter-finals. Nigeria, with a more formidable squad and depth, is considered one of the favorites to win the tournament.

In contrast, Angola, characterized as one of the surprises, lacks notable players, with many participating in local leagues. The Nigerians, coming off a victory against the strong Cameroon in the round of 16, are expected to utilize their experience and depth against Angola, who may face challenges, especially in the second half when opponents can introduce fresh forces.

  • Nigeria has won 3 out of 4 matches in the tournament, recently defeating Cameroon 2-0.
  • Angola, considered one of the surprises, has also won 3 out of 4 matches.
  • Angola occupies the 117th position in the FIFA rankings.

This sets the stage for an intriguing encounter where Nigeria’s experience and depth may pose challenges for the resilient Angolan side.

Guinea, on the other hand, has had a more varied performance with two victories out of four matches and a successful round of 16 encounter against Equatorial Guinea.

Anticipated as a balanced match between two teams of similar calibre, both Congo and Guinea boast talented players, many of whom ply their trade in reputable leagues such as Ligue 1, Ligue 2, Premier League, Bundesliga, and La Liga.
