Nigeria vs Seychelles: 4 things that will make Super Eagles beat Seychelles in Asaba

Super Eagles vs Seychelles will play their final AFCON Group E qualifier which will be a mere formality for the already qualified Nigerian side.

Gernot Rohr's men will be looking to seal top spot irrespective of the result between South African and Libya game.

Being the weakest team in the group, Seychelles will be no match for the vastly gifted Nigerian side when they trade tackles in Asaba, Delta state.

Here are 4 things Nigeria need to do to beat Seychelles

1. Attack

Being the home side and playing with top players across the world, Rohr is expected to unleash Odion Ighalo, Moses Simon and Ahmed Musa in the frontline.

Wing-backs Jamiu Collins and Abdulahi Shehu can also contribute by delivering crosses from the flanks, as well as Alex Iwobi making deadly runs from the midfield into box.

Seychelles will have difficult times holding back the Green and White.

2. Expect hard tackles

The Seychelles national side just like the first leg will be very physical in their approach coming into the game at Asaba knowing full well they have nothing to lose.

But a couple of yellow cards or even a red will put the visitors in a disadvantaged position and Nigeria can pounce and score more goals.

3. Midfield trio of Wilfred Ndidi, Iwobi and Oghenekaro Etebo

Rohr should mix physicality and a bit of finesse to his midfield which includes two Premier League stars Ndidi and Iwobi, as well as Championship player Etebo.

Ndidi and Etebo can do well in recovery and mopping for the full backs while Iwobi's pace and dribbles will be too hot to handle for the away side.

4. Inject fresh blood into the fold

Rohr should give a chance to the newly invited quartet including Enyimba's duo of Valentine Ozornwafor and Ikouwem Udo Utin, Akwa United's Ndifreke Effiong as well as Paul Onuachu of FC Midtjyland, into his side.

Since the Seychelles encounter is supposed to be a sure win for the Super Eagles, a second half appearance or possible starts for these players will boost their confidence going into the Egypt game a few days later.
