GHN vs NGR Dream11: Ghana will host Nigeria in the first leg at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Friday night.

Ghana secured a spot in the playoffs in their final group game by beating first-placed South Africa 1-0 to leapfrog them at the top via goal difference. Captain Andre Ayew scored the sole goal of the game with a first-half penalty. The Black Stars last qualified for the FIFA World Cup in 2014 where they exited in the group stage after picking up a solitary point from three games.

Nigeria, meanwhile, also confirmed their spot in the playoffs in their final group game. They needed just a point against second-place Cape Verde, which they ensured in a 1-1 draw.
