Liberia and Nigeria will aim for the three points in a matchday 5 of the 2022 World Cup qualifier slated on Saturday.
Liberia is expected to be welcoming Nigeria in a neutral venue in Morocco due to some unforeseen circumstances.
The home side comes into the game on the back of a 1-0 loss at Cape Verde Islands in October.
While Ryan Mendes scored on the stroke of full time to seal the win for the Islanders.
Nigeria avenged their 1-0 home defeat to the Central African Republic on home soil.
However, they secured a 0-2 victory in the return leg at Cameroon courtesy of goals from Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen.
The win was helpful as Nigeria sit top of Group C, having nine points from four games played.
While the Liberian side sits at the bottom of the log with only 3 points to their predicament.

Liberia vs. Nigeria
The Super Eagles are the clear favourites in this one and have (quality) vastly superior personnel compared to Liberia.
And they will be keen to hold on to their advantage at the top of their group standing.
Nigeria should be able to secure the win even as the match is slated at Morocco (neutral venue) to Liberia’s disadvantage for playing a supposed home game on a neutral venue.
