The friendly match between the two African superpowers, Ghana and Nigeria, will take place on Friday at the Stade de Marrakech. Despite a valiant effort by the Super Eagles, the hosts, Ivory Coast, were able to claim victory in last month’s Africa Cup of Nations.

As the Nigerian national team gets ready to compete in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, manager Jose Peseiro will likely use the upcoming March friendlies to give each player a chance to shine.

Betting tips: Nigeria x Ghana

Check out our predictions of the day for Nigeria vs. Ghana

Prediction 1: Nigeria x Ghana / Over 1.5 goals

Three of Ghana’s last four games have ended in defeats. Two of these matches saw them let in three goals or more, and they still haven’t won a game so far in 2022.

Conversely, Nigeria had won seven of their previous ten matches overall, and they had scored two goals or more in half of those matches.

Prediction 2: Nigeria x Ghana / Nigeria to win

Additionally, Nigeria has been on a winning streak on the road since September 2019, and with the exception of three draws, this record would be flawless.

Considering these points, Nigeria should come out on top this coming Friday.

Prediction 3: Nigeria x Ghana / Under 2.5 goals

Nigeria and Ghana matches have always been a low-scoring affair. Considering that this match is a friendly match and one with very little at stake, we expect under 2.5 goals in this encounter.
