Gambia vs Cameroon Predictions and Betting Tips
Hosts and AFCON 2017 Champions Cameroon would be looking towards securing progression to the semifinals when they take on Gambia in the last 8 this weekend. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
With both sides still unbeaten in this championship, we expect nothing less than a riveting encounter at the Olembe Stadium in the Cameroonian capital.
Surprise package Gambia eyeing semifinals berth
It has been a blissful tournament for the Gambians who head into this game having won three of the four games they've played so far, losing none. Despite that this is their first ever Africa Cup of Nations, the Scorpions look like a thoroughly experienced side and could very well cause a major upset this weekend. A 71st minute strike from Musa Barrow was all they needed to crash Guinea out of the tournament in the Round of 16, much to the delight of their fans and with yet another clean sheet in the bag, we expect them to give the host nation a good workout.
Cameroon were odd-on favorites to secure a place in the quarterfinals given their form in the group stage, as well as the fact that Comoros went into the game without a recognized goalkeeper. After their opponents saw red early in the game, it was pretty much a given that we would see the host progress and rightfully so with Karl Toko-Ekambi and Aboubakar netting in a 2-1 victory. Unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions, the Indomitable Lions would surely take some stopping and with AFCON top scorer Vincent Aboubakar on their side, we could see Toni Conceicao's charges lift the coveted cup at the end of the tournament.
