Nigeria vs Cameroon Preview

Nigeria vs Cameroon

Competition – Africa Cup of Nations

Stadium – Alexandria Stadium

Date: 6th July 2019

Kick-off time – 17:00 BST 

Nigeria and Cameroon renew their rivalry in this game but this game comes with less excitement than when the likes of Samuel Eto’o and Nwankwo Kanu played for the two sides.

Cameroon came into this competition as defending Champions but they have not shown enough to suggest that they can retain their title here.

Nigeria won their first two group games in a group that was supposed to be easy for the Super Eagles.  However, they flattered to deceive and were duly humbled in their last game against Madagascar as the small footballing nation defeated them 2-0 to leave the Nigerians second in their group.

Cameroon remains unbeaten in this competition, but they have also won just one of their matches to date.  They finished second based on goal difference and they will be looking to finally kick on in this competition.

The Super Eagles have the better head-to-head in recent clashes between these sides as they are unbeaten in their last 4 meetings against Cameroon.

In the last four games between them, Nigeria has emerged as winners on 3 occasions while the other game finished as a draw.

Bookmakers have priced Nigeria up as slight favourites to come out on top in this game while Cameroon will start the game as slight underdogs however the odds are extremely tight and an influx of cash could see Cameroon go off as favourites.

Goal markets point to an extremely tight game as under 2.5 goals is trading long odds-on prior to kick-off while Olivier Boumal is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.
