Cape Verde vs Cameroon AFCON 2022 Free Predictions
Cape Verde and Cameroon will meet for the fifth time since first meeting back in 2008 WCQ. In those previous encounters, Cameroon won twice while Cape Verde won in the most recent encounter in March 2021 when the two teams met in this year’s AFCON qualifiers. A barren draw was also registered prior to the 2022 AFCON qualifiers. Will Cape Verde extend their unbeaten run against Cameroon to three consecutive games? Here is why we think this game will end as we have predicted above.
First draw @ 1/1 (2.00)
Cape Verde will be a hard nut to crack based on how they have performed so far in the 2022 AFCON. The fact that Cape Verde bagged a barren draw and got a 3-1 victory against Cameroon in the most recent two encounters also make them a formidable encounter in this match. Cameroon has already qualified for playoffs but to stem that position, they need at least a draw in this game. We are tipping a tough first half duel with no breakthrough.
Under 2.5 @ 1/2 (1.50)
The second pick for Cape Verde vs Guinea backs fewer than three goals at full-time. Cape Verde has proved to be a difficult team to break down, especially defensively. They bagged a clean sheet win of 1-nil in the first game and lost by only a goal in the second-half. While Cameroon has the home advantage a good run of form (six consecutive wins), this will not be an easy game for the AFCON 2022 hosts.

Ethiopia in the second game of the tournament. The hosts also come to this game with a six-match unbeaten run of 6W, a form they look to keep going in this game. Cameroon secured their participation in AFCON 2022 playoffs with an emphatic 4-1 victory against . With the backing of homes fans, the Indomitable Lions are the favourites to win this match. However, such a win could remain elusive if they approach this game with laxity given the strong opponent in Cape Verde. Cape Verde is not undefeated in two most recent games against Cameroon. They inflicted a 3-1 collateral damage on the Indomitable Lions in the last games, an AFCON 2022 qualifier back in March 2021. Will Cape Verde extend that run in this third game?

Cape Verde predicted lineup: Vozinha, Fortes, Lopes, Stopira, Jeffrey, Andrade, Santos, Tavares, Rodrigues, Julio and Monteiro.
