*Odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Cameroon have not particularly enjoyed their best form in recent months. Their Africa Cup of Nations campaign was a disaster, after managing just one win in four games.

On the other hand, Cape Verde won five of their last seven matches, and their only loss in that seven-game stretch came on penalties.

In spite of this, Cameroon are the expected winners at 13/20 (1.65). Teams with these odds generally have a 60.6% probability of winning.

Additionally, both teams were involved in a lot of low-scoring games these past few months. Cape Verde’s last four matches, and four of Cameroon's last six games featured less than three goals.

With that in mind, under 2.5 total goals has an appealing look at 7/10 (1.70). That one has a 58.8% chance of landing.

Last five H2Hs: Can Cape Verde extend their unbeaten run against Cameroon?

While it can be said that Cape Verde have no losses in their last three meetings with Cameroon, it's fair to point out that they won just one of those clashes, with the other two ending in stalemates.

In the last six encounters between these outfits, both teams have two wins apiece, with two draws between them.

Team news and form guide

Cameroon: Hoping to get their qualifying campaign back on track

After missing a significant part of the Africa Cup of Nations, Vincent Aboubakar should be available for selection. There has been some friction between head coach Marc Brys and FECAFOOT president Samuel Eto’o. While the Indomitable Lions have a healthy squad, these off-field issues might affect the team's morale.

Predicted lineup: Onana (GK) Wooh, Gonzalez, Castelletto, Tokyo, Ntcham, Anguissa, Ngamaleu, N’Koudou, Aboubakar & Ekambi.
