Nigeria not favourites ahead of second leg in Abuja – Ghana coach Otto Addo


believes Nigeria are not favourites going into the second leg of the 2022 World Cup play-off on Tuesday.

The first leg ended 0-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Friday, meaning a win in Abuja would be enough to send the Super Eagles to their seventh finals appearance.

Ghana, on the other hand, need a win or a goalless draw.

Addo is confident that Ghana will make it to Qatar.

“The result doesn’t change anything. When we go there we want to win.”

“Even though our Africa Cup of Nations was not good this year, you saw we matched Nigeria in the first leg,” said the former Black Star.

“So I don’t see them as favourites, the pressure will be on them at home and away goals can hurt a lot.”

The game will take place at Moshood Abiola National Stadium and will kick off at 5 p.m. local time
