Nigeria vs Angola Betting Tips

  • To Qualify – Nigeria 29/100
  • Both Teams to Score – Yes 5/4 
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Ademola Lookman 5/2 
  • 1st half 3 way – Draw 21/20

To Qualify – Nigeria 29/100

Nigeria started this tournament off with a draw against Equatorial Guinea who fell out of the tournament in the previous round. For Nigeria, it has been three wins in a row in this tournament, with only a single goal conceded. They are the best defense in the tournament a head of Mali, South Africa who have each conceded two goals.

These two teams have met twice since 2005. Nigeria recorded the only win in this fixture with the other match ending with a draw. It took overtime to separate the two sides when they met in the quarter finals of this competition back in 2018. Nigeria walked away 2-1 winners and Angola was sent home.

Many fans have said that Nigeria had the hardest path to this stage, facing and defeating Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau, and Cameroon. One thing is for sure, Angola is a difficult opponent. I am convinced Nigeria will progress but, I have my doubts that this will happened in the prescribed 90 minutes. that is why I have gone with Nigeria to Qualify 29/100 instead of the 3-way market.  

Anytime Goal Scorer – Ademola Lookman 5/2

The value for money option when it comes to goal scorer in this fixture. Ademola Lookman has come alive in this tournament with two goals in four matches. He is enjoying the partnership he has struck up with Napoli Star Victor Osimhen. The odds on him repeating his goal scoring heroics against this opponent are set at 5/2.  


Both Teams to Score – Yes 5/4 

So close but so far for both these teams. Losing at this stage will be a bitter pill to swallow, especially with the semi-finals in sight. I expect both sets of players to give this match their all. Nigeria have surprised many of their critics with their performances. Angola on the other side of the coin have attracted a lot of admirers. Both teams have goals in them, and I believe that they will both find the back of the net 5/4. 


1st half 3 way – Draw 21/20 

For both these teams' goals flowed in the second half or late in the first half of matches. Nigeria is still to score a goal in the first 30 minutes of a match in this year CAF Africa Cup of Nations. Angola tends to score their goals between the 15th and 90th minute with most of those goals coming just before the half time interval. Nigeria conceded just the single goal in this tournament so it would be pointless to bring up their stats. With the sheer lack of first half goals for both these sides. I foresee a goalless first half or one with goals on both sides. either way I see a draw at half time 21/20
