Libya will take on Nigeria in the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) Group C game at the Stade Ibn Batouta in Tangier, Morocco on Friday.

The Mediterranean Knights thrashed Equatorial Guinea 3-0 in their first group match which was played in Tangier on Monday with Saleh Al Taher (brace) and Zakaria Al Harash scoring.

The win took Libya, who are coached by
Omar El Maryami, to the top of the Group C table with three points from one game. They are two points above second-placed Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Nigeria were held to a goalless draw by Rwanda in their first game of the tournament which was played in Tangier on Monday.

As a result, the Super Eagles, who are under the guidance of Salisu Yusuf, are placed second on the Group C standings with one point from one game. They are only a point above fourth-placed Equatorial Guinea.

The other Group C match between Rwanda and Equatorial Guinea will also be played on Friday.
