Nigeria vs Tunisia Prediction, Match Time, Head to Head and How to Watch
Despite the fact that the Super Eagles’ performance in the group stages of the Africa Cup of Nations gave them complete confidence, they were somewhat unlucky to be drawn against Tunisia in the round of 16.
Now, their opponents made little of an impression during their first three games, but they still represent a difficult matchup, particularly when compared to some of the other minnows who have advanced.
Nonetheless, if the Super Eagles are to win the AFCON on Cameroonian soil, these are the types of games that they must win in order to accomplish their goal.
In light of this, here is everything you need to know about the game.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The AFCON round of 16 clash is scheduled for a 8:00pm GMT kick-off time on Sunday January 23, 2022.

As it stands, neither team have fresh injury concerns.
A string of thrilling results has propelled Nigeria to an impressive start at the Africa Cup of Nations, and they now head into the knockout stages as both the standout team and the team to beat in the tournament.
With a 1-0 victory over Egypt on January 11, the Super Eagles began their quest to become the continent’s most successful team for the fourth time. Kelechi Iheanacho’s 30th-minute strike was the difference in the match.
They followed that up with an even more dominant performance in their second group match against Sudan, which they cruised to a comprehensive 3-1 victory over the African nation four days later. Samuel Chukwueze, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Moses Simon scored goals in the first half, before Walieldin Khidir equalized from the penalty spot in the 70th minute.
Frankly, it’s too hard to look past the Super Eagles following their performances in the group stage.
We predict a Nigeria vs Tunisia score of 2-0.
Following a nearly flawless performance in the group stages, Nigeria has established themselves as legitimate title contenders. While going up against Tunisia can be a difficult task for any team, Nigeria has the talent and determination to come out on top, and we believe they will do just that and continue their charge for the World Cup title.
