It’s time for the playoffs in the men’s football Africa Cup of Nations 2023 (TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations 2023 for sponsorship reasons). The AFCON knockout stage (last 16) will include a continental classic – the match between Nigeria and Cameroon – which will start on Saturday, January 27, at 8 p.m. local time at Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. This is how we assess the chances of the two sides, relying on how bookmakers with Android apps set the odds.
The current form of Nigeria. Before the AFCON commenced, Nigeria was an overwhelming favorite in Group A and they fulfilled in line with expectations. They defeated Ivory Coast and Guinea-Bissau with confidence after tying up with Equatorial Guinea. Given the strength of Nigeria’s offense, it seems unexpected that the final score in both victories was 1-0. But a win is a win, and perhaps the “Super Eagles“ will score more goals in the knockout stage. Nigeria has won two games, drawn two, and lost one in their previous five encounters. Regarding both teams scoring in their matches, Nigeria has had two matches in which both they and their rival teams have scored and three matches in which both teams haven’t scored in the last five games. Nigeria has scored under 2.5 goals in five of its last games. In the previous five games, Nigeria has scored four goals and given up four goals. The current form of Cameroon From the beginning, Cameroon was letting its supporters down. They lost to Senegal after suffering an embarrassing loss to 10-man Guinea in the first place. Most of the time, the third group stage match between Cameroon and Gambia was frustrating: the former led 1-0 but saw the ball in its net twice to go behind five minutes from the end. A true football miracle happened in the remainder of the match: Cameroon scored the winning goal in 90+1 minutes after Gambia first gave up an own goal. “The Indomitable Lions“ are undoubtedly encouraged by the incredible comeback that moved them up to second place. In the upcoming game, their motivation will be their greatest asset. Cameroon has lost one game, drawn three, and won one of the previous five games. In terms of both teams scoring in the last five matches, Cameroon has all with a Yes in both teams have scored. In the Over/Under 2.5 market, Cameroon has scored under 2.5 goals in three of the last five games and over 2.5 goals in two of them. In the previous five games, Cameroon has scored seven goals and given up eight goals.
Although Cameroon’s skills haven’t increased since the beginning of AFCON, their motivation has. In elimination matches, discipline and order are frequently more important than the urge to win, and Nigeria excels in these areas. Furthermore, Cameroon’s defense is simply too weak. We propose taking your chance on a Combo bet at Bankonbet: Nigeria to win and under 2.5 goals at odds of 3.50.
