Two heavyweight nations are set to lock horns in pursuit of a place at a major showpiece in Qatar, but only one can prevail.

Nigeria are looking to reach a fourth successive World Cup finals, and a sixth since 1994, while Ghana want to make amends for missing out in 2018, but only one heavyweight nation will make it through the final stage of CAF qualification for Qatar 2022.

There are five spots still up for grabs, but the Super Eagles and Black Stars know that they cannot both progress and that something is going to have to give when they lock horns.

Ahead of an eagerly-anticipated two-legged tie, wildLEAKx brings you all you need to know about how to stay right up to date with a thrilling end to the African qualification campaign.

Ghana’s hosting of Nigeria at Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi will not be broadcast on television in the UK, but it can be streamed for free on Mola TV.

In the United States, the game will be available on ESPN+, with millions around the world ready to tune in and catch a glimpse of some superstar performers in action.

Interim Ghana boss Otto Addo, who was handed the reins on the back of a disappointing showing at the Africa Cup of Nations has included six uncapped players in his squad, while national team captain Andre Ayew is suspended.

Alex Iwobi is also banned and will play no part for Nigeria, while Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has suffered knee ligament damage, but Ademola Lookman has completed his switch from England to the Super Eagles and could make his debut alongside Rangers defender Calvin Bassey.

Ghana vs Nigeria: Head-to-head record

Games played16
Ghana wins5
Draws4
Nigeria wins6

Ghana and Nigeria first locked horns at the Africa Cup of Nations in 1992, when the Black Stars secured a 2-1 win.

The Super Eagles took control of proceedings at the turn of the 21st century, claiming five successive victories across World Cup, Afcon and friendly competition, but that tide has turned again in more recent times.

Nigeria have taken only one victory from their last seven clashes with Ghana, with that solitary triumph coming in September 2017.

During a back-to-back friendly double-header in that particular month, the Black Stars ran out 4-1 winners in the last meeting between the two nations.
