Today's Best Bet: Wednesday, July 17


Leigh Copson: Back Nigeria to beat Tunisia @ 6/4 Coral

It is the game nobody who competes in the African Cup of Nations wants to take part in, but before Nigeria and Tunisia can head home they must go head-to-head in the Third-Place Play-off. So who will sign off on a positive note?

Nigeria suffered supreme heartbreak as they were beaten by Algeria in the semi-finals. The Super Eagles looked to have taken the tie to extra-time when Odion Igahlo’s penalty cancelled out a William Troost own-goal that had given the Algerians the lead, but there hopes of making the final were destroyed deep into added time when Riyad Mahrez produced a sublime free-kick with virtually the last kick of the game to snatch a 2-1 victory for his nation.

That left the stunned Nigerians facing up to a third-place play-off against a Tunisia side who did not go down without a fight when they faced outright favourites Senegal in the semi-finals. Both sides saw penalty kicks saved before the match went into extra-time, and it was during this extra period that the decisive moment came as Tunisian defender Dylan Bronn put past his own goalkeeper to hand Senegal a 1-0 victory. Just like the Nigerians, it was a devastating semi-final loss for the Tunisians, but can they now lift themselves?

The bookmakers are making this a close contest in the Match Betting market and that is no real surprise because neither side will have a great deal of motivation heading into this one, and the two coaches could perhaps opt to give some fringe players a run-out. However, it is hard to ignore the fact that Nigeria are the better team with better individual talent, so I am going to back the Super Eagles to wrap things up with a victory in 90 minutes on Wednesday.
