AFCON 2021 Quarter Finals | Gambia Vs Cameroon: Match Preview Betting Tips & Predictions

Gambia Vs Cameroon

In an AFCON 2021 tournament filled with goals, viral moments and upsets, the quarterfinals begin with the home side Cameroon taking on Gambia.

Buoyed by the goals of Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko Ekambi, the Indomitable Lions easily topped their Group A table with 7 points. In the round of 16, they defeated Comoros, but not as easily as they would have expected.

Just like the home side, Gambia ended the group stage with 7 points but finished in 2nd place due to Mali also finishing with 7 points and a superior goal difference. In the first knockout round, they beat Guinea by a lone goal to set up this quarter-final clash with Cameroon. 

Gambia vs Cameroon Head-to-Head

Both teams have met twice already with both games won by the Indomitable Lions. Despite the odds being in Cameroon’s favor as the home country and possessing the superior head-to-head record, the sample size is small enough that the Scorpions will be hoping that the venom is potent enough this time to overwhelm the Indomitable Lions.

Overall, especially in the AFCON tournament, Cameroon has been the more consistent performer and they will be hoping that that pedigree stands them in good stead for this game.

Barring any late issues, the Cameroonians should field the same starting lineup as in their previous game. As usual, Vincent Aboubakar is expected to lead the line, and he’ll be looking to add to his six goals this tournament.

Yusupha Njie was sent off in Gambia’s previous game, but as a substitute who has struggled for playing time at this AFCON tournament, his absence is unlikely to change head coach Tom Saintfiet’s plans, who is expected to name an unchanged XI to face Cameroon.

Gambia vs Cameroon prediction

Gambia would have noticed how poorly Cameroon performed against Comoros, who were reduced to ten men for the majority of the game and used a left back in goal. They’ll be confident that they can hurt Cameroon if they can replicate the East African side’s tactics.

Home advantage is a potent weapon for any football team. The Indomitable Lions will be out to win the tournament on home soil, backed up by the most fervent home fans and led by the most potent striker in the competition.

Our prediction: Gambia will make it a tough game, but the home team will win by a narrow margin.

Gambia to win: 8.00
Draw: 3.45
Cameroon to win: 1.60

After the narrow win over Comoros, the home team will be eager to make amends with a convincing victory in this game.

If Gambia can defeat Cameroon, they will establish themselves as legitimate contenders. With a spot in the last four on the line, expect an entertaining, tightly contested game.
