Nigeria Vs. Benin Preview

Africa Cup of Nations Qualification team Nigeria must be too strong for Benin  at the Akpabio Godpill Stadium. They have the power to beat Benin and new boy Joe Aribo seems to be continuing his amazing start on the International stage. Though Benin has a victory over Ivory Coast but it will be hard for them to beat a team like Nigeria.

Nigeria Team News

Nigeria drew 1-1 with Brazil in an international friendly in October. They led the first half through Joe Aribo but were pegged back by South America three minutes after the restart.

The Super Eagles go into Wednesday’s match in good condition after suffering just one defeat in their last five matches. Gernot Rohr’s troops also have a good record in AFCON qualifiers with four wins in their last five matches.

Captain Ahmed Musa returned to the team after not appearing since AFCON in June because of an injury. He could be given the start in attack with Victor Osimhen who has been in good shape for French club Lille. Joe Aribo is expected to continue in midfield after scoring in his first two matches for the national team.

 

Benin Team News

Benin also drew in their last match when they were held 2-2 by Zambia in a friendly match in October. They came from behind twice with Steve Mounie to make them equalize the first time before Mickael Pote grabbed the equalizer in the first minute of added time.

The result means Squirrels have claimed only one win in their last six matches in all competitions. Michel Dussuyer’s men struggled on the road in AFCON qualifiers after suffering three defeats in their last four away matches.

 


Mickael Pote and Steve Mounie are expected to lead the line for Benin on Wednesday after their goal against Zambia. Veteran Stephane Sessegnon will also appear in midfield while Olivier Verdon is in the battle to start in defense.
