Kick-off: 1800, 25/06/2019
Stadium: Ismailia Stadium
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.
CAMEROON 1-1 Mali – Toko Ekambi
Angola 2-0 GUINEA-BISSAU
