Incredibly, Tunisia have reached this stage having only picked up one win in regular time. The team drew all of their group stage games before beating Ghana in a penalty shoot-out. 

Their following 3-0 win over Madagascar was their first and, so far, only win in 90 minutes in this years African Cup of Nations. The question is whether they can now make it two wins in regular time when they take on Nigeria this Wednesday night. 

Unlike their opponents, Nigeria have won games and have been pretty impressive in this competition. Two group stage wins over Guinea and Burundi sealed their place in the knockout stages. 

Then a 2-0 loss to Madagascar was followed up with solid victories against Cameroon and South Africa. 

The team was heading for extra time in their semi-final when Manchester City and Algeria forward Riyad Mahrez converted a last minute free kick to send his nation through and demote Nigeria to this third-place tie. 

Once again, the bookmakers have struggled to separate these two nations however, they are leaning slightly towards Nigeria with 6/4 odds. 

With a tight contest on the cards, our recommendation is to back the draw at 2/1.
