Cameroon vs Ethiopia: Match Preview & Betting Tips
The hosts of the Afcon 2021, Cameroon are ready to take on their 2nd group stage match at the Olembe Stadium this week against Ethiopia. The hosts will be coming into the game on a high after defeating Burkina Faso 2-1 in their first Afcon fixture last weekend.
Read on for the Cameroon vs Ethiopia match preview, team news and betting tips.
Cameroon vs Ethiopia Head-to-Head
The two teams have only faced each other once in the entire Afcon history. The match was held over 5 decades ago, in 1970 and resulted in a 3-2 win for Cameroon. Other than that, Cameroon and Ethiopia have played one more match in 2016 in the African Nations Championship, but the game resulted in a draw.
For punters, it’s important to keep in mind that Cameroon are currently on a winning streak while the Ethiopian squad has been unable to win any of their last 5 encounters. Moreover, the Cameroon team have won all of their last 7 home games, which makes Thursday’s game all the more challenging for the Ethiopian side.
