Competition: African Cup of Nations
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
Two nations who are looking to secure a spot in the final of this year’s African Cup of Nations, Algeria will face off against Nigeria on Sunday night.
Starting with Algeria, while they may have needed penalties to come past the Ivory Coast earlier in the week, the Greens have continued to shine over the past nine months. Winning each of their three Group C matches and holding a three-point buffer at the top of the group, Algeria have now won all five of their matches at this year’s African Cup of Nations and have recorded 10 goals on that winning run. It is also worth noting that the Greens have won each of their last six matches across all competitions and are now unbeaten in their last 11 appearances, winning nine of those contests.
As for Nigeria, continuing to shine in the final third, Nigeria managed to secure a 2-1 win over South Africa to land their spot in the semi-finals of this year’s African Cup of Nations. Winning four of their five matches out in Egypt, they have also now recorded five goals in their last two victories. However, it is worth noting that Nigeria have failed to record a clean sheet in any of their previous three appearances. With five of the last six combined matches between the two nations seeing over 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing another lively encounter on Sunday night.
