Today's Best Bet: Wednesday, June 26


Leigh Copson: Back Nigeria to win to nil vs. Guinea @ 7/5 William Hill

Nigeria made a winning start to the African Cup of Nations at the weekend, but they left it late to finally seal all three points against Burundi – the lowest ranked team in this year’s tournament. Odion Ighalo’s solitary goal 13 minutes from time settled matters and while Gernot Rohr will have been pleased to see the ‘Super Eagles’ start with a victory, he will be demanding a much-improved performance when they return to action against Guinea on Wednesday. Will he get it?

Next up for Nigeria are a Guinea team who made an underwhelming start to their campaign against African Cup of Nations debutants Madagascar. Guinea were weakened by Naby Keita’s absence from the starting XI for the clash and trailed 2-1 on the hour mark, prompting coach Paul Put to send on the Liverpool star as a substitute despite his lack of fitness. It was a move that seemingly paid off as Guinea levelled minutes after his arrival, but they were unable to complete the turnaround and that means they have some work to do as they look to advance to the knockout stage.

A win over Nigeria would certainly help their cause, but I do not fancy their chances of beating a ‘Super Eagles’ team who are thought to be one of the leading contenders to deny bookies favourites  Egypt the crown. The Nigerians will have to produce a much better performance than the one we saw against Burundi, but it is not unusual to see a favourite toil in the opening game or two. After all, the pressure is on them from the very start and sometimes they just need a little time to settle down.

The most important thing was that they won and I expect them to make it two wins from two games. I expect them to keep another clean sheet too. Guinea did score twice last time out, but this is not a team that is loaded with goals and the Nigerians have now conceded in only in two of their last six games. Eight of their last nine victories have come with a clean sheet too, so I fancy that to be the case again here as Nigeria book their place in the next round with a group game to spare.
