Nigeria News and Form

There was steady progress at the start of the group stage campaign from Nigeria. Those were 1-0 wins over Burundi and Guinea. Both goals from Nigeria in those wins happened after the 70th minute. But then things took a tumble for them as they were beaten 2-0 by Madagascar in their final group stage game. So that meant that the Super Eagles missed on top spot and instead had to settle for second place. But at least they got out of the group stage and they will be going up against another runner up in this one, in the form of Cameroon. The big question here is whether or not Nigeria will have the goals in them.

The Nigerians have come up with only the three goals across their last five games. They failed to score in three of those fixtures. So they have gone off the boil a little bit in their offensive output and there was clear evidence of that in the group stage. Just one of Nigeria’s last nine games have made it over 2.5 goals. But there have been defensive strengths from them having picked up a clean sheet in all but two of their last six. Going back to September last year the Super Eagles are W7 D3 L2 in twelve fixtures now.

  • The Indomitable Lions have four clean sheets in six games

Cameroon News and Form

There were five points earned by Cameroon in the group stage. They started with a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau before playing out back to back 0-0 draws with Ghana and Benin. Those latter two results they will likely have been a bit disappointed by. Cameroon though are on a six-match undefeated streak of form currently with wins in half of those. They do have some defensive strength there as they have not conceded in the tournament so far. Will they be able to get back in touch with their scoring side?

Before the back to back blanks against Ghana and Benin, Cameroon had been on a four-match scoring streak. They haven’t been in great winning form with a W2 D4 L1 record in their last seven competitive fixtures. They have failed to score in four of their last five competitive games as well, so that has been where they have come up short. The Indomitable Lions are the reigning Cup of Nations Champions, winning their fifth title two years ago. Do they have more gears to go through to get themselves close to a title defence?

Nigeria v Cameroon Predictions

Nigeria to win: There probably is not going to be too much between them really, especially under the circumstances of this being a knockout tie. It’s not easy to pick a winner out of this so there’s every reason to look to the To Qualify market. Nigeria may just have the edge as their winning form is slightly better.\
