Cameroon vs Burkina Faso Betting Tips

The African Cup of Nations kicks off on Sunday as hosts Cameroon take on Burkina Faso at the Stade Omnisport Paul Biya.

In what should prove a tight contest, the hosts, while not one of the stronger nations on paper, will be expected to go far in the competition having won the tournament on 5 previous occasions, including most recently in 2017.

The hosts come into the tournament in decent shape, winning each of their last 4 matches including a fine WC qualifying win over Ivory Coast to ensure their safe passage into the final round of qualification fixtures.

Still, Burkina Faso should not be under-estimated in this fixture with the visitors coming into the competition also in good heart having enjoyed an unbeaten run of 8 matches including 2 draws with AFCON champions Algeria.

On the road, Burkina Faso have also proved a solid outfit in recent months, winning 3 and drawing 2 of their last 5 away fixtures and while they are big outsiders here, are expected to prove a tough opponent for the hosts.

Recent meetings between these sides have also favoured Burkina Faso who remain unbeaten in their last 4 matches against Cameroon including a 0:0 draw when these sides met less than 12 months ago. Burkina Faso also claimed a 1:0 win when these sides last met in Cameroon. It should also be noted that all 4 of those most recent fixtures finished with under 2.5 goals scored.

Opening fixtures in big tournaments like these are typically tight contests and this one looks likely to follow a similar trend and while the hosts are odds on favourites at 1.6, we fancy the underdogs to claim an opening day point in what is likely to be a low-scoring fixture. 

As such, we´ll take the under 2.5 goal pick at 1.6 odds with Burkina Faso potentially claiming a fine draw. 

Final score 1:1
