Nigeria’s recent form has been inconsistent, highlighted by consecutive 1-1 draws against Lesotho and Zimbabwe in their previous qualifiers. Despite these setbacks, the Super Eagles aim to leverage their home advantage and secure a vital win to keep their World Cup qualification hopes alive. Historical encounters favor Nigeria, who have dominated this rivalry with four wins and five draws in their last ten matches against South Africa.

Meanwhile, South Africa, under the guidance of Hugo Broos, will aim to capitalize on Nigeria’s recent struggles and continue their defensive solidity, which has been key to their recent success. Despite the absence of experienced defender Grant Kekana, Bafana Bafana have a robust squad ready to challenge the Super Eagles.
