Nigeria vs Algeria
In a repeat of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semi-final, the West Africans lock horns with the continent’s top side looking for some revenge of sorts. Both sides faced off in Cairo over a year ago with Djamel Belmadi’s troops emerging 2-1 winners.
While the final score and the late timing of the North African nation’s winning strike suggests the game at the Cairo International Stadium was close, the Algerians were arguably head and shoulders above Gernot Rohr’s men in their application and in-game management.
Friday’s game at the Jacques Lehmans Arena may not have a lot riding on it, but the Super Eagles will be out to get one over the African champions after last year’s gut-wrenching elimination.
Both sides have been unbeaten since the finals and the pair’s 100 percent record in Afcon qualification puts them among the six nations without blemish in the race to play in Cameroon.
So, where could Friday’s match between the African champions be won and lost?
