The Super Eagles will play Tunisia on Tuesday evening, in the second of two friendly games planned for this international break.
Nigeria lost 1-0 to Algeria last Friday – their first match in 2020.
With new dates for their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers confirmed, Gernot Rohr is using these matches to prepare his squad.
The West African and the Carthage Eagles have met several times in the past, the latest being the third-place play-off of the 2019 AFCON.
Odion Ighalo scored the only goal in that encounter, as Nigeria clinched bronze at the tournament.
Rohr and his players will be hoping to pick up another win in Austria.
Tunisia have not beaten Nigeria in a competitive game since the 2004 AFCON that they hosted, when they edged the Super Eagles in a penalty shoot-out after both teams tied 1-1 in regulation and extra time at the Stade Olympique in Rades, outside Tunis.
Meanwhile, the Super Eagles manager has promised to present a better team than the one that lost to Algeria on Friday when Nigeria takes on Tunisia tonight.
The loss in Austria generated lots of criticism from Nigerians, who have started questioning Rohr’s capacity to give the country the national team of its dream.
Some critics have even started calling for Rohr’s sack, saying he has not shown that he has the capacity to lead the Eagles to greatness.
