Here are Will Rook’s football tips for Nigeria v Tunisia, which kicks off at 20:00 on Wednesday.

Draw after 90 minutes

Five of Tunisia six games at this year’s AFCON have ended level after 90 minutes, including their semi-final and last-16 ties.

Nigeria’s matches have been similarly tight, with all but one separated by just one goal, so it would be no surprise to see extra time on Wednesday.

Both teams to score

Nigeria have both scored and conceded in all three of their knockout matches in Egypt.

Tunisia netted three against Madagascar in the quarters, only failing to score against finalists Senegal and Mauritania in their final group game.

A penalty to be awarded

There was a combined total of three penalties awarded in Nigeria and Tunisia’s semi-final matches.

With VAR in action, another is always a distinct possibility.
