CALABAR, Nigeria (Sporting Alert) — Nigeria and Ethiopia will do battle in what is expected to be a very African World Cup Qualifying game at U. J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar, Nigeria on Saturday.
Nigeria head into the contest with a slight a 2-1 advantage after a brace from Emmanuel Emenike guided the Super Eagles to victory in Addis Ababa in the first leg in Oct.
The advantage will certainly see them starting as the favourites to win over the two legs, but a very confident Ethiopia side is determined to stun their opponents and seal an upset win, as they look to book an automatic place that would see them making a FIFA World Cup debut next summer.
Nigeria starts as the 1/6 favourites to win, with the most popular score, according to SkyBet, being 1-0 at 5/1.
