Tip Reasoning

  • Ivory Coast’s last two internationals have finished goalless.
  • Cameroon have kept four consecutive clean sheets but have only managed to score three goals across those games.

Monday’s crucial World Cup qualifier between Ivory Coast and Cameroon is a game the hosts simply can’t afford to lose and we’re likely to see a war of attrition in Abidjan.

The make-up of the CAF qualifiers means only one team progresses from each group in the second phase, so one of these leading African Nations will definitely fall by the wayside well in advance of the 2022 finals in Qatar.

And Ivory Coast are immediately on the backfoot after their disappointing goalless stalemate away to Mozambique in midweek. Les Elephants’ failure to dispatch a side ranked 66 places below them in the FIFA Rankings was a huge setback, and they’ll likely need to take four points from their meetings with Cameroon if they’re to escape Group D.

Patrice Beaumelle’s men are favourites to triumph here, but neither side really stands out in the 1X2 market. The hosts can’t take too many risks as a defeat all but puts them out of the running, while Cameroon will surely be content to take a point.

With Ivory Coast’s last two games ending 0-0 and Cameroon keeping four straight clean sheets, under 2.5 is our recommendation for this tie. The visitors have also drawn a blank in two of their last four outings, so it’s highly unlikely that we’re going to see much action in either penalty area.

The two sides are very evenly matched and just three places apart in the FIFA Rankings, and that coupled with what’s at stake leads us towards a 0-0 correct score prediction.
