- Nigeria midfielder Shehu Abdullahi is doubtful for this match due to injury.
- Algeria has a lot of players such as Adam Ounas, Yacine Brahimi and Islam Slimani who can change the match from the bench.

- Head to Head: Algeria wins – 7; Nigeria wins – 7; Draws – 4.
- There is no clear favourite for this match. Both teams are equally strong.
- My Prediction: Algeria 1-1 Nigeria.

Nigeria: Ighalo, Iwobi, Chukwueze, Ngidi
Best Dream11 Combination (No safe team)(Updated):
- There is no safe captain pick for this match. Too many options.
- You may pick Musa in place of Iwobi. Equally great picks.
- You may pick Bennacer in place of Feghouli.
