Gambia vs Cameroon – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Cameroon to Win (4/6)

  • Cameroon need a victory over Group C’s bottom side Gambia to stand a chance of staying in the competition.
  • Gambia were beaten in each of their first two assignments in Group C.

Cameroon’s AFCON campaign hasn’t exactly gone to plan following a haul of one point from two games, however, a victory over Gambia could push them into the next phase through the back door and they should have the class to beat their opponents, who have yet to pocket a point. The Indomitable Lions won each of their last four tussles with the Gambians and our first Gambia vs Cameroon prediction tips them to prevail again.

Win probability

  • HOME: 24/5 (5.80) – 17.2%
  • DRAW: 12/5 (3.40) – 29.4%
  • AWAY: 4/6 (1.67) – 60%

Despite their winless start to AFCON, Cameroon have been named as the expected winners this week and their implied probability of success is sitting at 60% ahead of Tuesday’s clash. Under 2.5 goals meanwhile, looks like a decent option when these low-scoring outfits clash at 1/2 (1.50). That outcome has an implied probability of 66.7%.

Gambia vs Cameroon Team News

Gambia

Gambia were beaten 1-0 by Guinea in their last assignment after they conceded 16 shots to seven on matchday two. With their AFCON adventure already over, Head Coach Tom Saintfiet could hand minutes to some of his fringe players against Cameroon.

Predicted Lineup for Gambia: Gaye – Janko, Gomez, Collet, Mendy – Sundberg, Darboe, Colley, Jallow, Fadera – Barrow

Cameroon

Cameroon slipped to a 3-1 loss to Senegal last time out in a fixture that produced just ten shots in total. Manager Rigobert Song, who has a strong squad at his disposal, is unlikely to switch things up tactically or in terms of personnel for Cameroon's final crucial group match against Gambia.

Predicted Lineup for Cameroon: Onana – Tchato, Wooh, Castelletto, Tolo – Kemen, Neyou, Anguissa – Ngamaleu, Nkoudou, Magri

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to Watch – Andre Onana

Andre Onana finally started for the first time at AFCON for Cameroon against Senegal, however, the Manchester United man wasn’t at his best and he was at fault for at least one goal in his team’s 3-1 loss. Onana will be determined to raise his performance levels against Gambia, though he might not have much to do against a weak opponent.
