The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon face Les Coelacantes today at the Olembé Stadium ( 8 PM)
The Lions step into the round of 16 of the AFCON after earning 7 points in their last 3 games while the Coelacantes step into this game after earning 3 points in their last 3 games .
A draw with Cape Vert , Wins on Ethopia & Burkina Faso has made Cameroon huge Favorites to win the Competition especially as they play on Home Soil .
While Comoros has proven clearly that they are not to be underestimated despite entering this match as the Underdogs after beating a 4 time AFCON champion in Ghana .
This win made sure they qualified for this round and proved that despite losing their 1st 2 matches , they can dine with the Giants of Africa on a football table .
Cameroon is unbeaten in their last 7 matches and have a better head 2 head record ( 1W , 1D in 2 Matches) .
Comoros has won 2 out of their last 7 matches and have a poor head to head record against Cameroon ( 1 L , 1 D in 2 Matches )
A Key Player for Cameroon will be their star man Vincent Aboubakar who is the competition’s top scorer and won’t hesitate to punish any team if given the opportunity.
While Comoros Winger Ahmed Mogni is the player to count on for Les Coelacantes as he is their top scorer in the competition.
The entire Cameroon squad will be available for this game while Comoros will be without 7 players including their 2 Goalkeepers due to Covid. Meaning they will need to get a player to step in Goal for them .
This doesn’t sound well for Les Coelacantes but could their fairy-tale AFCON run still continue ? here’s our Prediction :
Given the Fact that Comoros defeated an African Football Giant in Ghana , Cameroon won’t underestimate them and so we shall see Antonio Conceiçao prepare his best team against them .
Aboubakar also being in Fine form and the unavailability of every Comorian Goalkeeper will increase Cameroon’s chances of scoring a goal
Cameroon have scored in their last 8 matches and this one should be no different . Especially in front of a home crowd
We expect to see a Blood Bath in this fixture as a player cannot make up for the loss of an experienced Goalkeeper in goal
Cameroon also have proven to have a fragile back-line as they have conceded in every AFCON fixture but given every circumstance reviewed,
We say Cameroon 4 – Comoros 1
