Nigeria vs Angola: Nigeria will play Angola in the first 2024 Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal today (Friday) at the Felix Houphouet-Boigny Stadium in Abidjan. Both teams have won three and drawn one in four matches thus far in the tournament.

Nigeria defeated Cameroon 2-0 in one of the most entertaining Round of 16 matches on Saturday without allowing the opponents to have a shot on target. Two goals from Ademola Lookman sent the Super Eagles to the quarterfinals. Nigeria’s defence, which had three clean sheets before this match, should please Head Coach, Jose Peseiro.

In their last two encounters, Angola kept their net untouched but faced easier opponents. Palancas Negras defeated Namibia 3-0 in the last 16. Two goals and an assist from Gelson Dala highlighted the game. Both Namibia and Angola had a man sent off in the first half.

Both teams have been great so far, but Angola allowed too much defence space against Namibia in the Round of 16. Namibia squandered several crucial chances. A tight win over Mauritania in the Second Round of the group stage cost Angola two goals.

Nigeria vs Angola: Betting Analysis

Nigeria comes in after three clean sheets. In their R16 match against Namibia, Angola left too much defence space despite a 3-0 win. Napoli forward Victor Osimhen should have room to beat the Angolan defence.

Osimhen could decide this match. He has only scored once in the competition, but he can thrive against this Angolan backline.  Osimhen assisted in a 2-0 win over Cameroon in the previous round.

In the last 20 years, these teams have met three times. Nigeria won the African Nations Championship quarterfinal 2-1 in extra time in January 2018. In the 2006 World Cup qualifiers, Angola won four points in two matches against the Super Eagles. None of the last three Head-to-Head matches between these rivals had three or more goals in 90 minutes.

Who will win the match: Nigeria vs Angola?

Though, in all likelihood, Angola won’t be able to break through this Nigerian team’s defence, they will certainly create enough opportunities to do so.

We predict that it will be a close game, with Nigeria winning by a score of 2-1. It will be intriguing to observe the outcome of this one.

Our Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
