Our prediction for this match:
Guinea and Niger go head to head at Emirhan Sport Center Stadium in what is expected to be a close warm-up game. Guinea quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Togo, with the team beating European side Kosovo 2-1 in their last friendly. The Syli Nationale aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Friday’s clash.
The Menas, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Gambia and Congo. Niger failed to find the net in the previous four matches in all competitions, and given Guinea’s display in the triumph over Kosovo, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the nominal hosts. You should bear in mind that Guinea are eyeing their first win over Niger since September 2012.
