Tunisia vs Nigeria Stats
- Tunisia only fell victims to Senegal with a 100’ own-goal from Dylan Bronn

- The sides shared the spoils in all of the last three head-to-head clashes over the past decade
Tunisia vs Nigeria Match Preview
Nigeria have struggled to perform against Algeria and while Riyad Mahrez only netted the last-gasp winner to make the difference in a 2-1 loss, Gernot Rohr saw most of his star men below par and he’s sure to make some changes ahead of the 3rd place play-offs against Tunisia on Wednesday.
Super Eagles have thus seen a streak of two losses at the Africa Cup of Nations interrupted again, falling just short of the Final. They’ve been led by Odion Ighalo and we do expect him doing the same here, as he looks to keep hold of the top goalscorer spot ahead of Mahrez, Ounas, and Mane who breathe down his neck.
Tunisia have seen a similarly narrow contest but less disappointing of a performance, as they saw an unlucky own goal at the 100’ mark make all the difference – where Mouez Hassen plunged and saw the ball past him hit Dylan Bronn, rebounding into the net to the despair of many.
Eagles of Carthage have felt more solid at the back and will now want to build on the performance rather than forget about it, although Senegal (1-0) ended their six-match unbeaten streak across competitions. We do expect more fringe players on their behalf too and we should see them motivated to snatch the 3rd spot despite no glory at the end of the road.
We thus hope for a very narrow occasion in the making and slim margins could make all the difference. However, we see this one going into the extra-time too and we’ll thus stick our necks out for a Draw priced at 2/1 with 22Bet – which has caught a lot of attention already.
We don’t feel we’re in for many, there should be goals at Al Salam Stadium and we’ll thus also go for a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with Hamabet – hoping to see both sides going for it and more relaxed than in the very tense semi-finals clashes.
