Nigeria Vs Libya

Super Eagles of Nigeria, who defeated Libya 4-0 in Uyo, have reportedly landed at Sfax in Tunisia where they will take on the Mediterranean knights of Libya on Tuesday.

The Nigeria side ran riot against their North African opponent on Saturday as they scored four unreplied goals to move up to the second position in Group E.

They are hoping to make it two wins out of two against Libya on Tuesday when both side face in the reverse fixture.

Having lost to the three-time African Champions, Libya interim manager Omar Al-Miryami has promised their supporters that his boys would put up an improved performance against Nigeria in tomorrow’s encounter.

Though the match won’t be played in Libya due to security issues, Al-Miryami boasts that playing in the unfamiliar ground won’t have a negative impact on his team’s display.

The game is scheduled to take place by 7 pm ( Nigerian time) at the Stade Taïeb Mhiri.

Should the Eagles defeat Libya in Tunisia, they will be a step away from qualifying for the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon as they would be on nine points while Libya would remain with four points.

In other Group E match that would be played later tomorrow, Seychelles will play host to South Africa.

The African minnows were thrashed 6-0 by their South African counterparts on Saturday but they will be looking to earn their first point in the qualifying series against South Africa later tomorrow.

Should the South African side defeat their opponents, they would remain at the summit of the group with 10 points while Seychelles would remain at the bottom with no point.
