The Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to take on the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in a third-place match at the ongoing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The last four meetings between both nations in an AFCON tournament has ended in four victories for Nigeria while Tunisia last recorded a win in the semi-finals in 2004.
