Our Prediction:

Cameroon will win

Cameroon – Kenya Match Prediction | 30-09-2019 04:00

Will defending champions Cameroon take the trophy again at this summers African Nations Cup? They are going up against Ghana and Benin in this pool, but first, they take on Guinea-Bissau this week. They were supposed to be the side hosting the tournament, but a reshuffle in the hosting schedule has seen their tournament moved to 2021. Now the champions are aiming to make a mark in Egypt, as they look to top Group F.

The provisional visitors failed to win their last three games. They are in a series of four matches without a defeat in all competitions. Prior to that period, they had only one win in six matches. However, the hosts proved as a better team at the moment, so the Mighty Tips experts suggest backing them up to win the upcoming game. The first round draw against Benin was especially disappointing. The provisional hosts started the tournament with a 2:0 win over Guinea Bissau. If they fail to defeat their next opponent, the Black Stars will suffer greatly in terms of team morale. Therefore, they raised the level of their form just in time for the continental championship.

A man to watch in Clarence Seedorfs team will be PSG attacker Choupo-Moting, who is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line. Guinea-Bissau failed to impress in their last warm-up game against Angola (0-2) and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Cameroons party in Ismailia. In each of their previous three meetings the Lions Indomitables emerged triumphant and we are positive that the history is going to repeat itself.

Only two members of the squad have 17 caps or more to their name. Thats left concerns over their defence going into this summer, especially given that they are facing two of the 2017 semi-finalists in this group. Guinea-Bissau have little chance against some quality sides, while we expect Cameroon to cause problems from the start. To make matters worse, they arent coming here with much experience. Guinea-Bissau conceded twice in three of their final five qualifiers, struggling at the back against the likes of Mozambique and Zambia.

The Squirrels face a must-win situation in their last group match, but beating Cameroon is easier said than done. Benin kicked off their AFCON campaign with a 2-2 draw with Ghana, with the team playing out a goalless draw with Guinea-Bissau in their second group game. A place in the Africa Cup of Nations knockout stages will be at stake when Benin and Cameroon face each other at Ismailia Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Both have enough talent to light up this tournament, while theyre hitting their mid-twenties so should be expected to make their mark in Egypt. Hes taken an attack-heavy side to Egypt, naming eight forwards in his squad, as they look to live up to their success in 2017. Cameroon come into this tournament coached by Clarence Seedorf, who will be aiming to improve a mixed record as a manager following his short reign at AC Milan. Chief among those forwards are wingers Christian Bassogog and Clinton NJie.

In their last meeting in a competitive game Cameroon recorded a routine 4-1 win over Benin and the history is likely to repeat itself. The defending champions are one point away from booking their place in the last 16, but seeing that Benin are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesdays match, we predict that the reigning champions will have opportunities to seal the victory on the break.

Highlighted Player (Steve Mouni):

Guinea-Bissau play their away matches in green shirts and green shorts. The team play their home games at Estadio 24 de Setembro and Estadio Lino Correia and the colour of their home kit is red. The likes of Edson Ricardo Nunes Correia Silva, Gerso Fernandes, Lassana Camara, Almami Moreira, Bocundji Ca, Eridson, Luciano Teixeira and Esmael Goncalves are some of Guinea-Bissaus most notable players. Guinea-Bissau impressed in their qualifying group, with the team finishing the process in top position, leaving the likes of Congo, Zambia and Kenya behind them in Group E.

Cameroon begin the defence of their Africa Cup of Nations title against Guinea-Bissau at Ismailia Stadium. Over the years the Cameroonians have gained experience at major tournaments and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the reigning champions. The Lions Indomitables are seen as favourites to win their opener, but coach Clarence Seedorf must warn his men against complacency.

Their squad is full of players from European leagues, but there are few stand-out names. Their side is short on the quality required at this level, while there are problems for the minnows in defence. Guinea-Bissau have a squad heavily influenced by Portuguese football. Guinea-Bissau went out in the group stage two years ago with only a point to their name, so we arent expecting much from them this time around. They just made this tournament for the first time in 2017, losing to Cameroon as they went on to claim glory.
