Ivory Coast vs Cameroon Predictions

This looks certain to be a very tight match. The hosts will want all three points after drawing their opener but Cameroon are solid at the back. I am backing the match to end level.

Head to Head

Cameroon hold a 5-4 advantage against Ivory Coast over 10 previous meetings. There has been one draw.

The sides last met in 2016 in the CHAN tournament for domestically-based players only. Ivory Coast won 3-0.

Ivory Coast Form

Ivory Coast qualified for the 2021 AFCON after topping their group.

A fine 3-0 win in Niger was following by sealing qualification with a 3-1 win against Ethiopia. A 2-1 friendly victory against Burkina Faso followed before a 0-0 draw in Ghana completed the off-season international break.

In their last match, the Elephants could only draw 0-0 away at a solid Mozambique side. It was a disappointing performance by Ivory Coast after they failed to create enough meaningful opportunities.

Cameroon will host the 2021 AFCON but played in the qualifying rounds regardless. They topped their group with three wins and just one defeat in six matches.

The Indomitable Lions lost 3-1 in Cape Verde and drew 0-0 with Rwanda in their final two qualifiers. They played two friendlies against West Africa neighbours, Nigeria in June. The first match ended 1-0 in favour of Cameroon before a 0-0 draw in the final match.

Cameroon will be happy with a point here so will likely sit deep. That has proven successful for them so I'm backing the sides to end 1-1.
