NGA vs TUN Dream11 Prediction for Nigeria vs Tunisia Africa Cup of Nations Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


NGA vs TUN Dream11: Tunisia’s lacklustre start to life at the AFCON could well prove to be their downfall after they only managed to finish third in Group F which has set up this clash with the impressive Nigeria. Tunisia won just one of their three games as they scraped through as one of the best third-placed teams but now face a Nigeria team that boast a 100% record in the tournament so far. They brilliantly topped Group D, conceding just a solitary goal in the process and with confidence high for the Super Eagles, they should be able to continue their fine run by recording another success here.
