CAF W'Cup Qualifier: Cameroon x Cape Verde, Match Preview, Odds and Predictions(08/06/2024)

When they play Cape Verde at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo, Cameroon hopes to stay in first place in Group D. The visitors should wait to be written off, even if the Indomitable Lions are the overwhelming favorites to win Saturday's match. For the third-round World Cup qualifier, interim manager Martin Ndtoungou Mpile will rely on players like Vincent Aboubakar, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa; Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana to start.

The Blue Sharks, on the other hand, had an uphill battle against Cameroon after defeating Eswatini 2-0 in their second group encounter. Martin Ndtoungou Mpile's squad has many well-known players, so a home victory should be considered. As usual, Forward Ryan Mendes of Karagumruk will be one to watch in the away team. He has scored 18 goals in 77 games for the national team.

Cameroon x Cape Verde Team News

African news reports that Cameroon almost fired him after an "explosive confrontation" between coach Marc Brys and Samuel Eto a few days ago. Some sites even claimed that the Belgian coach had been fired, but the most recent information indicates that Brys will probably be in command, at least for the next two games.

Patrick Andrade and Roberto Lopes joined the team on Wednesday, the fifth. With them in place, coach Bubista ought to have the strongest team available for the following games against Libya and Cameroon.

Head To Head And Previous Matches

Among the teams that show up in the World Cup somewhat often is Cameroon. They have done so seven times in the last nine World Cups, although they have just once advanced from the group. They are now leading the way with four points in the first two rounds of this qualifying cycle. They are, nonetheless, level in points with Libya and Cape Verde. After Nigeria beat Cameroon 2:0 in the 1/8 Finals of the last AFCON., head coach Rigobert Song was fired.

Although Cape Verde has never participated in a World Cup, they are constantly improving. Hence, we wouldn't be too shocked if they did. Probably the superior squad and deserving of the victory, the Blue Sharks were one of the most pleasant shocks of the last A.F.C.O.N., making it to the quarter-finals before falling to South Africa on penalties. The Blue Sharks secured four points in the first two games of these World Cup Qualifiers, but they will now play the most challenging game in Group D.

Our Predictions

Under 2.5 goals @1.55 on

Cameroon's attacking performance hasn't been excellent lately. In their past nine games, they scored more than one goal only twice—against Gambia and Mauritius. Those clubs aren't defensively as strong as Cape Verde. Cameroon played six of the past nine games in all competitions and ended under 2.5 goals, primarily due to a subpar offensive.

One of the teams that seldom ever plays high-scoring games is Cape Verde. They occasionally maintain a clean sheet and play relatively disciplined and well-organized football. They held their net intact in the last four games in all competitions against Mauritania, Equatorial Guinea, Guyana, and South Africa. Conversely, the Blue Sharks aren't scoring all that much, either. They managed just two goals in the first two World Cup Qualification games against Eswatini and Angola.

Two of the last three head-to-head encounters between these sides in the previous five years have ended in a 1:1 tie. After everything is said, we think the safest course of action for this World Cup Qualifier game is under 2.5 goals.
