Gambia vs Cameroon: prediction for the AFCON match
Gambia square off against Cameroon in the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday, January 29. Who will progress to the semi-finals? Look out for our prediction in the article below.
Gambia have been very confident throughout their first Cup of Nations campaign. Tom Saintfiet's side has not lost a single match at the current tournament and conceded only one goal in four games. In the round of 16, the Scorpions recorded a narrow victory over Guinea (1:0).
Tournament hosts Cameroon are one of the main contenders for the title. Toni Conceição are excellent in attack, but they also conceded in every game at this tournament. In the last match, the Indomitable Lions were one man down since the 7th minute of the game, but still managed a victory over Comoros (2:1).
This score was recorded in 2 out of 4 games of Cameroon.
In the last 5 games, Cameroon consistently scored before halftime.
This bet played in 2 of the last 3 games of Cameroon.
This will be the biggest challenge yet for Gambia. The Scorpions should be able to score - Camerron aren't especially reliable on the defensive. But it will be extremely difficult to withhold the attack of the Indomitable Lions. The tournament hosts will go forward from the first minutes of the game, trying to secure a lead, and Gambia will respond with counterattacks. We are expecting more than two goals in this fixture.
Our prediction - total over 2 goals
Gambia were never a favourite here and they have already surpassed expectations. We believe that the Scorpions have a good chance to create problems for Cameroon and even avoid defeat in fulltime.
Second bet - Asian handicap (+1) to Gambia
