Niger vs Madagascar Kick Off Time
NAME: Niger vs Madagascar
DATE: 3 Feb 2023
TIME: 19:00 UTC
VENUE: Nelson Mandela Stadium
The concluding round of matches in the 2023 African Nations Championship sees Niger and Madagascar battle it out for a podium finish in Friday’s third-place meeting.
Niger were comprehensively thrashed by tournament hosts Algeria in their semi-final encounter, while Madagascar fell at the hands of Senegal.
Consequently, Barea have now seen their 10-match unbeaten streak across all competitions come to an end, a run which included seven wins and three draws.
Next up for them is the challenge of an opposing outfit who are without a victory in the previous two meetings between the teams prior to Friday’s encounter.
In what is set to be their final outing before the AFCON qualifiers take centre-stage, Madagascar will be keen to get back to winning ways and cap off what has been a fine CHAN outing.
Niger were left red-faced as they suffered a 5-0 demolition against Algeria in Tuesday’s last-four encounter between the teams at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium.
First-half strikes from Ayoub Abdellaoui, Aymen Mahious and a Katakore Boureima own goal left Harouna Doula’s men with a mountain to climb after which Soufiane Bayazid put the icing on the cake.
That was a second defeat in five games since the turn of the year for the Dama Gazelle, who also suffered their heaviest defeat since November 2021.
