Football handicap predictions for Nigeria – Benin
Nigeria welcomed Benin in Group L of the first round of the Africa Cup of Nations Qualification. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 13, at 4:00 PM at the Akwa Ibom Stadium in Uyo.
Nigeria and Benin are the favorites in Group L and the teams of Lesotho and Sierra Leone will be competing on the way to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. Undoubtedly, Nigeria’s team is a big favorite, but Benin’s squad can be a contender for the top 2 spot, as he performed strongly in the tournament this summer and reached the quarter finals where he lost 0-1 to Senegal.
The Nigeria team is a favorite in the upcoming match. Gernot Rohr alumni will try to take the three points to their own audience. The home team impressed players like Emmanuel Dennis, William Troost-Ekong, as well as the more experienced players John Obi Mikel, Odion Ighalo and Leon Balogun.
Nigeria reached the 1/2 finals of this year’s tournament and defeated the Tunisian team in the bronze medal contention. The hosts have a strong squad and will certainly allow for a surprise in this match.
However, the Benin team should not be underestimated. Guests rarely lose much of a difference and the fact that they eliminated Algeria in the 2019 Africa Cup is indicative of not being a casual team. The team has lost 2 of their last 4 games, giving up a minimal result. Michel Dussuyer alumni will try to make a point of their upcoming visit to Akwa Ibom Stadium.
They have some cool players in their ranks such as Huddersfield Town striker Steve Mounié and captain Stéphane Sessègnon, who plays for the Turkish Gençlerbirliği. Benin has only 1 win in their last 7 qualifying matches on foreign soil in this tournament. In my opinion they will not win in Uyo, but they will probably lose a lot of difference so you can bet on Benin +3 handicap. Enjoy our football handicap predictions for today!
