The Confederation of African Football confirmed lady week that the Baba Yara stadium as the venue to host Ghana's crucial first leg encounter against Nigeria, instead of the initial Cape Coast stadium, stating it was unfit to host the game.

A training session would be held by the Super Eagles at the Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, Ashanti ahead of the crucial game on Friday at 7:30pm.

Ghana and Nigeria has met 56 times across all competitions. The Black Stars has won 25 while the Super Eagles wins 12 times, 19 games has ended in draw.

Playing Ghana away from home never really favoured Nigeria who has won just once, and lost 16 times, with six draws out of 23 games Ghana has hosted.
