Nigeria vs Tunisia will take centre stage at Jacques Lemans Arena in Austria on Tuesday, October 13, 2020.
The Super Eagles will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Algeria while the Carthage Eagles defeated Sudan by 3-0.
The match will be a repeat of the third-place playoff of the AFCON 2019 tournament where Gernot Rohr's men won by 1-0 to clinch bronze.
Three of the last four meetings between the two sides have finished level, but the contest is expected to be an entertaining one on Tuesday night.
Nigeria was previously on a three-match winning streak including their back-to-back AFCON qualifying wins against Togo and Lesotho.
Rohr is expected to make a couple of changes after handing debuts to the likes of Ogochukwu Onyeka, Zaidu Sanusi, and Samson Tijani.
Team captain Ahmed Musa and Ola Aina are expected to make Rohr's starting XI to join up with the experienced William Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun and the likes.
On the other hand, Sunderland star and Tunisia captain Wahbi Khazri as well as Hamza Rafia are the players to watch out for in the encounter.

Okoye, Ebuehi, Troost-Ekong, Balogun, Sanusi; Ayaji, Onyeka; Chukwueze, Iwobi, Kalu; Iheanacho

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that the Super Eagles performed below average following their defeat to Algeria in an international friendly match played at Jacques Lemans Arena Die Zeit in St. Veit, Austria.
A sixth-minute strike from Bensebaini made the difference in the match as the Nigerian side suffered another defeat to the North Africans.
Gernot Rohr's men played to a more superior tactical team who have gone 19 games unbeaten and currently the African champions.
