Nigeria vs Mali – a first friendly since 2016

Three years prior, in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals in Durban, South Africa, Mali got thrashed by the Super Eagles 4-1. Nigeria went on to win the AFCON title defeating Burkina Faso 1-0 in the final.

Ahead of Tuesday night's kick-off, Nigeria have met Mali 11 times. Six wins have gone the way of the Super Eagles, three matches ended in a draw, while Mali have picked up two wins against Nigeria.

It's important to mention that these sides first went head-to-head on 1 June 1960 in an international friendly which ended in a 3-2 defeat for the Super Eagles.

Mali have failed to register a win in their last eight meetings against Nigeria, drawing three matches, and losing five. The Eagles' last victory over the Super Eagles came in September, 1975 during an international friendly.

Nigeria vs Mali: A top-grade friendly on Tuesday

Nigeria locked horns against Ghana in what is called the “Jollof Derby” last Friday in Marrakech.

In that game, the Super Eagles humbled ten-man Black Stars with goals from Cyriel Dessers, Ademola Lookman and a consolation strike from Jordan Ayew ensuring that Nigeria picked up a 2-1 victory, their first in 18 years over their West African arch rivals.

On the other hand, Mali dispatched Mauritania 2-0 last Friday with Modibo Sagnan and El Bilal Toure scoring for The Eagles.

Both teams will go into this game on the back of decent results in 2024. But while Mali got to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations, Nigeria reached the finals.

As such, these sides have established themselves as one of the most organized teams in Africa at the moment, making this friendly a top notch for fans of both countries.

Their playing style showcases patient build-up and a focus on maximizing their strength in midfield and attack.

It'll be interesting to see which of these sides, coincidentally named “Eagles”, will fly highest on Tuesday night.
