Nigeria vs South Africa Prediction Match Details

The fate of which team will advance to the final stage will see Nigeria and South Africa lock horns on Wednesday in the semi-final match of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) at the Stade de la Paix.

Nigeria Preview & Form

Nigeria have reached the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations for the record 15th time but have been poor at this stage as five of their last six appearances at the semi-finals have ended in a defeat. The last time the Super Eagles advanced to the finals of the AFCON tournament was in 2013, and they won the tournament that year.

The Super Eagles are the highest-ranked side left in the competition following the exit of Morocco and outgoing champions Senegal. Nigeria are on a four-match winning streak and are unbeaten in their last five matches.

Nigeria booked their spot in this match by beating an impressive Angola side 1-0 thanks to a goal scored by Ademola Lookman just before halftime.

South Africa Preview & Form

South Africa is playing their fourth semi-final in the Africa Cup of Nations and their first since 2000, when they were eliminated by Nigeria (2-0).

The Bafana Bafana secured their passage to the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations, defeating Cape Verde on penalties, with their wonderful keeper Ronwen Williams making four dramatic penalty saves in the match.

South Africa’s defense have been remarkable, keeping four consecutive clean sheets in the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in its history.

Bafana Bafana are the lowest-ranked side left in the competition and have failed to beat Nigeria in their last two meetings.

Nigeria vs South Africa Betting Tips

Nigeria remains the favorite for the African Cup of Nations and won 2-1 in their last match encounter against South Africa in 2019, but South Africa has been difficult to break down after shutting down Cape Verde and Morocco in their last two matches. We believe Nigeria will win.
