Cape Verde vs Cameroon Predictions


Cape Verde need to try to win this match although a draw keeps their qualification hopes alive. They are a very goal-shy team and will play for a clean sheets first and foremost. 

Cameroon can qualify with a win but are missing some of their top players. I am tipping this to be another draw between these two teams.

  • Cape Verde have drawn their last 5 matches (Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers).
  • Cape Verde have failed to score in 6 of their last 7 matches (Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers).
  • Cameroon are unbeaten in their 5 matches (4 wins, 1 draw)(Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers).
  • Cameroon have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 10 matches (Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers).

Head to Head


Cameroon hold a 3-1 advantage over Cape Verde across their previous five meetings with one draw.

The two teams last met in November 2019 as Cameroon drew 0-0 at home with Cape Verde in an AFCON qualifier.

Cape Verde Form


Cape Verde drew 0-0 away in Cameroon in the reverse fixture in Africa Cup of Nations qualification. They followed that up with a 2-2 home draw against Mozambique before beating Andorra 2-1 away in a friendly match.

In the last FIFA break, Cape Verde lost 2-1 at home to Guinea in a friendly before a goalless draw at home with Rwanda in an AFCON qualifier.

Their last match saw another 0-0 draw against Rwanda in the return fixture. Cape Verde sit fourth in their AFCON qualification group, one point behind Rwanda with a game in hand.

Ryan Mendes will be a key player in attack for Cape Verde having netted a brace in October’s friendly victory away at Andorra.

Verdict

Cape Verde are a very goal-shy team and will be looking for a clean sheet here. Normally Cameroon will be fancied but they have a severely weakened squad due to COVID-19. I am therefore backing this match to end level.
