Guinea-Bissau vs Nigeria – prediction, team news, lineups

Guinea-Bissau head coach Baciro Candé is expecting a tough match against the Super Eagles, but believes his side can pull through.

Candé’s men need a win against the Super Eagles to stand a chance of picking one of the tickets for the Round of 16.

The Djurtus played a 0-0 draw in their first game against Sudan, before losing to a late Mohammed Salah’s goal against Egypt in the second.

Speaking ahead of the game, the experience gaffer believes his side can get a famous win against Super Eagles and advance to the next round.

“Nigeria team is a strong team but we will try to play our game. In football we just need to believe in ourselves and fight for what we believe. We will focus on ourselves,” Candé told a press conference on Tuesday.

“Of course, we will try and take the game to Nigeria and with a little bit of luck we could win the game.

“Everyone know Nigeria is one of the best teams in Africa because of their quality but we will play our game. In every strong team there is a weakness.”

Guinea-Bissau possible starting lineup:

Mendes; Cande, Mane, Sangante, Encada; Cassama, Nogueira; Pele, Piqueti, Ambri, Balde

Nigeria possible starting lineup:
Okoye; Aina, Troost-Ekong, Ajayi, Sanusi; Nwakali, Onyeka; Chukweze, Iheanacho, Musa; Sadiq Umar
