The Dream Team defeated the Black Meteors in the first leg in Benin City two weeks ago, which has sparked some urgency from the Ghanaian side.
Having failed to progress in the Olympic Games qualifier, this is the only chance for Ghana’s U23 side to play in an international tournament.
The fact that they are playing against their archrivals has further increased the home side's expectation but they have to play without some key players.
Nigeria coach Austin Eguavoen will also be missing the services of some of his players as Venlo forward Ahmed Musa as well as Parma of Italy’s Obiorah Nwankwo have been hauled by their teams for pre-season.
Nigeria first-choice goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye is also unavailable owing to injury.
