Nigeria is considered to be the top favorite to win the 2024 AFCON, with a record of winning each of its last four games without conceding a single goal. However, in an interesting turn of events, the Super Eagles have yet to face a formidable opponent such as South Africa.

Bafana Bafana has already proven their strength by defeating tough opponents, including Morocco, and now they are prepared to add another win to their portfolio. The odds for Nigeria vs. South Africa are as follows: Nigeria at -160, Draw at +245, and South Africa at +585. In terms of goals total, Over 2 is at -112 and Under 2 is at -118.

The game is set to take place at Stade de la Paix in Bouake, Ivory Coast on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 12:00 PM ET. It can be watched on beIN Sports USA.

Nigeria had a rocky start in the 2024 AFCON, drawing 1-1 with Equatorial Guinea. However, they rebounded impressively by winning their next four games, each time with a clean sheet. They defeated Ivory Coast, Guinea Bissau, and Cameroon in the group stage, and then Angola in the quarterfinals.

On the other hand, South Africa had a mixed start, losing 2-0 to Mali but then defeating Namibia 4-0. They drew with Tunisia and then managed to upset the odds by defeating Morocco and Cape Verde in the knockout stage. Their strong defensive efforts have been a key factor in their success.

The prediction for the Nigeria vs. South Africa game is that Nigeria will dominate the attack, while South Africa will focus on defending. With players like Ademola Lookman and Victor Oshimen, Nigeria is expected to overcome South Africa’s defense.

In summary, the odds favor Nigeria to win against South Africa in the 2024 AFCON.
