The coach Austin Eguavoen led side have six points from their opening two games, having beaten Egypt 1-0 and besting Sudan 3-1 to claim the top spot in group D.

On the other hand, the game is a must-win for the Djurtus, who face the risk of elimination after picking up just one point from their opening two games.

Guinea-Bissau suffered a huge blow to their chances of reaching the round of 16 as they fell to a slender 1-0 loss against Egypt last time out, with Mo Salah scoring the only goal for the Pharaohs in the 69th minute.

However, Guinea-Bissau head into Wednesday’s game in poor form as they have failed to win any of their last six games in all competitions, picking up three draws and losing three, while failing to score in all six outings.

The Super Eagles head into Wednesday’s game unbeaten in each of their last five games across all competitions, picking up four wins and one draw since last November’s shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of Central African Republic and will now look to make it three wins from their opening three AFCON games for the first time since 2006, when they defeated Senegal, Zimbabwe and Ghana.
