Benin Prediction – Can Benin provide shock?

Group F is still nicely poised ahead of the final round of group matches, and Benin sit in 3rd place but level on 2 points apiece with 2nd placed Ghana.

Benin have drawn both of their matches so far in Group F with a solid point earned against Ghana in a 2-2 draw but will perhaps be disappointed with their stalemate against Guinea-Bissau.

They drew 0-0 with Guinea-Bissau as they picked up another valuable point which took their tally to 2 overall prior to this final match of the group stage.

However, a tough challenge now awaits Benin in the shape of Group F leaders, Cameroon, who have beaten Benin in their two previous meetings.

Benin still need to be respected though as they’ve lost just 2 of their last 13 matches which were defeats to Algeria 2-0 and Gambia 3-1.

Recent wins against Togo, Guinea and Mauritania will give Benin hope ahead of this clash, although as mentioned earlier, they’ve lost their two previous encounters against Cameroon.

Cameroon Prediction – Can Cameroon seal top spot in Group F?

Cameroon currently occupy top spot in Group F with 4 points under their belts so far in this competition thanks to a win and a draw.

They hold a 2-point cushion over both 2nd placed Ghana and 3rd placed Benin ahead of this final round of matches in Group F.

A solid 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau was followed up with a another creditable result in a 0-0 draw with group rivals, Ghana, which has placed Cameroon in a favourable position.

With Ghana expected to beat Guinea-Bissau, Cameroon just need to avoid defeat in this final match against Benin to progress through to the quarter-finals.

Just 2 defeats out of their last 11 matches in all competitions will give Cameroon the necessary confidence of getting at least a point in this encounter.

Defeats to Morocco and Brazil have been the only lowlights for Cameroon in recent times, while wins against Comoros, Zambia and Guinea-Bissau are timely boosts.

In addition, Cameroon have beaten Benin their previous two encounters, so confidence will be high in the Cameroon camp.


Key-Facts – Benin v Cameroon

  • Benin have lost just 2 of their last 13 matches overall in all competitions
  • Cameroon have kept clean sheets in their two group matches
  • Cameroon have won the previous 2 meetings against Benin


Betting Tips Verdict

Benin will need to pull off something special here in order to qualify while Cameroon just need a point to progress.
