Cameroon vs Guinea-Bissau: Holders to hit ground running

Kick-off: 1800, 25/06/2019

Stadium: Ismailia Stadium

TV: Eurosport

Cameroon were crowned Africa Cup of Nations champions for the fifth time two years ago and can begin the defence of their trophy by edging out Guinea-Bissau.

The Indomitable Lions beat the same opponents 2-1 during the group stage in Gabon and should have the class to shade another entertaining encounter.

We like 16/5 for the holders to prevail and both teams to score again for our first Cameroon vs Guinea-Bissau prediction.

A Look At Cameroon’s Betting Odds

Cameroon improved as the tournament went on last time, beating Senegal on penalties and then overcoming Ghana and Egypt to complete a trio of upsets in the knockout stages.

Qualification for this competition went relatively smoothly, with home wins over Morocco, Malawi and Comoros and a couple of away draws enough for a comfortable runner-up finish.

Only losing 1-0 to Brazil in a Milton Keynes friendly last November was another encouraging effort.

Goalkeeper Andre Onana is coming off a fine season with Ajax, while PSG forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Marseille striker Clinton N’Jie are proven performers up front.

Brighton defender Gaetan Bong, Fulham midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Arnaud Djoum of Hearts are other familiar faces in a team managed by Dutch legends Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert.

With lots of attacking firepower on show, 7/4 for the Indomitable Lions to win and over 2.5 goals in the game is another good option from the Cameroon vs Guinea-Bissau odds.

A Look At Guinea-Bissau’s Betting Odds

Guinea-Bissau also have some useful front men, including Portugal-based striker Frederic Mendy and winger Toni Silva, who was on the books of Chelsea and Liverpool during his academy days.

They topped a qualifying pool which contained Namibia, Mozambique and Zambia by collecting nine points from a series of close encounters.

However, there is a feeling that the Djurtus are vulnerable at the back, which was apparent in a 2-0 warm-up loss to Angola.

Let’s finish off our Cameroon vs Guinea-Bissau betting tips by taking 33/4 for the holders to oblige 2-1 again.
