Benin vs Cameroon Match Preview
Benin have shocked Ghana in a 2-2 draw on Matchday 1 and built on the success with a goalless draw against Guinea-Bissau, which kept their hopes of a top 2 cut alive despite being rated heavy underdogs to do so ahead of the tournament – now meeting Cameroon for their Matchday 3 clash hoping for another upset to make it happen.
Squirrels have thus extended a five-match unbeaten streak as they came into the tournament on the back of three consecutive wins across competitions, where they beat Togo (2-1), Guinea (1-0) and Mauritania (3-1). They’ll now want more of the same but getting it against in-form rivals should prove the biggest task yet.
Cameroon came into the AFCON tournament in red-hot form and they opened the competition with a comfortable 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau, which has them at the top of the table together with a goalless draw against Ghana seen since then. They’ve been rock-solid at the back and Clarence Seedorf should be able to set up such a challenge now too.
Indomitable Lions have only failed to find the net for the first time in six outings as they shared the spoils with Ghana on Saturday, which will require bouncing back but promises them just as motivated to retain consistency in Egypt ahead of the knockout stages.
We do feel they have what it takes despite a strong challenge from Benin, who have shown they can play great sides already, as we now stick with Cameroon to win at 4/5 with MyBet – which feels like great value at this point.
However, Benin have shown off as a tough nut to crack and we do hope to see more of the same in that sense, as we now also back a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT as more of a banker bet at 4/9 with Hamabet.
