Nigeria and South Africa will both be desperate for victories when the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers continue between Sunday and Tuesday.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Guinea-Bissau at home on Friday with Mama Balde scoring and they will now be eager to avenge the defeat when the two teams meet in Bissau on Monday.
While South Africa, who let a two-goal slip in their 2-2 draw with Liberia at home on Friday, will now be away to the Lone Stars on Tuesday in Monrovia where Bafana Bafana will be determined to secure a win.
In Maputo, Senegal will be looking to complete a double over Mozambique on Tuesday with the reigning African champions having hammered the Mambas 5-1 in Dakar on Friday with Sadio Mane scoring once.
Meanwhile, Egypt will also be confident of securing another win over Malawi when the two teams meet in Lilongwe on Tuesday with the Pharaohs having claimed a 2-0 win at home on Friday as Mohamed Salah grabbed a goal and an assist.
While Ivory Coast will be away to Comoros in Moroni on Tuesday as they look to record another win over the Coelacanths who lost 3-1 in Bouke on Friday with Sebastian Haller netting the second-goal.
In Rades, Tunisia, Algeria will look to their inspirational captain Riyad Mahrez once again when they face off with Niger who succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to the Desert Foxes in Algers on Thursday.
