    Benin's win over Rwanda and Nigeria's draw against South Africa means Group C is very tight at the moment with every side from first to sixth having a chance of qualification.

    Benin will look to build on their 1-0 win against Rwanda that put them in third place, one point above Nigeria.

    Benin's win against Rwanda leaves them level on points with Rwanda and one point behind group leaders Lesotho, who secured a win against bottom side Zimbabwe in round three. This means that the first and the last in group C are separated by three points.

    Benin is one of the four nations to have won a game in Group C, this shows how competitive it has been after three matches with no team likely to run away with first place.

    Benin played an extra day before Nigeria and will hope to secure a victory against Nigeria because of the extra day's rest.

    Nigeria are undefeated in all their three qualifying matches. They have played out to 1-1 draws against Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

    In particular, Friday's match against South Africa was a frustrating one for Nigeria fans as they felt they were denied a penalty after Fisayo Dele-Bashiru was fouled in the box.

    This isn't the ideal start Nigeria was expecting, but they can put their three consecutive draws behind them by securing a win against Benin in Abidjan.

    Securing a win against Benin could take Nigeria at the top of the table if South Africa fail to secure a draw or win against Zimbabwe and Lesotho and Rwanda play out a stalement.

    Having failed to qualify for the last World Cup, Nigeria must get their act together to avoid being absent for the second consecutive time since their first appearance in the tournament in 1994.

    Dokou Dodo scored the match winner for Benin against Rwanda and could retain his place in the starting line up.

    Benin's centre forward, Steve Mounie, should lead the attack with Junior Olaitan and Jodel Dossou.

    The Nigerian boss was criticized for leaving out Victor Boniface in Nigeria's draw with Rwanda. He maybe left out again as Terem Moffi could start ahead of him on Monday.

    Alex Iwobi and Wilfred Ndidi were Nigeria's top performers in their last match, they could retain their spots in the starting line up.
