Tip Reasoning

  • Cameroon have won their last six competitive games and their last five at home.
  • A much-improved second-half performance saw Cameroon beat Ethiopia 4-1 on Thursday.
  • At least two goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between the nations.

Cameroon can supply the goals in Group A conclusion

Cameroon look too strong for Cape Verde and can seal top spot when they face the Blue Sharks in their final Group A match on Monday. The Indomitable Lions finally clicked into gear in the second half of their 4-1 come-from-behind victory over Ethiopia on Thursday and are now through to the last-16.

Who and where they play will be determined by the outcome of this game and Toni Conceição’s side are sure to want to avoid a slip-up that could complicate their progress.

Cameroon were still vulnerable to Ethiopia’s counter-attacks, so there was some encouragement for Cape Verde – who could scrape through with a narrow defeat. They are sure to set-up with plenty of bodies behind the ball to make it as tough as possible for the hosts. Cape Verde have lost only one of their last four meetings with Cameroon and earned a 0-0 draw in Yaounde in qualifying two years ago.

Blue Sharks are an ageing squad

However, Cameroon are much more effective nowadays, having dispatched the likes of Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso – both sides ranked higher than Cape Verde – on home turf this year.

A 2-0 home win and over 1.5 goals is the main selection because, although Cape Verde have a decent defensive record, they are an ageing squad and may suffer from the quick turnaround of matches in the stifling conditions in Cameroon’s backyard.
