Nigeria will this evening (Saturday) March 27, 2021, take on the Benin Republic in their fifth game of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.
Super Eagles of Nigeria are top of Group L of the qualifiers ahead of Benin, Sierra Leone and Lesotho.
The match which will be played at the Stade Charles de Gaulle in Porto-Novo will kick off at 5 pm on Saturday.
Meanwhile, no Nigerian television station will be able to broadcast the game.
SuperSport has not broadcast any Super Eagles’ AFCON qualifier since they halted the broadcast of content from the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
This was as a result of CAF terminating the 12-year rights of Lagardere as their exclusive agent for the sale of marketing and media rights.
SuperSport bought their rights from Lagardere which makes it impossible for them to broadcast CAF’s content.
beIN sPORTS have confirmed that they will broadcast the game.
There are now indications, according to Goal, that the match will be beamed live on AIT and NTA.
You can also watch the game live on NFF TV: http://thenff.com/nff-live-tv and on Nigeria Super Eagles (Verified) Facebook page and on Nigeria Super Eagles YouTube Channel.
