Both of these sides can still qualify for the knock-out rounds and a draw will be enough for Clarence Seedorf’s Cameroon side. However, he will want to win the group to give them the best chance in the later stages of the African Cup of Nations.
So far Cameroon have looked good against Guinea-Bissau, winning 2-0 and then they stuttered to a 0-0 draw against Ghana who are not the force they used to be. That would have been slightly disappointing for fans of The Indomitable Lions who now need to get three points in their last match to guarantee top spot.
Former Stoke man and now PSG player Maxim Choupo-Moting might be back into the starting line-up for this match after missing the tie against Ghana.
Benin were not fancied by many people to trouble the bigger nations in the tournament, but they gave Ghana a real scare when taking the lead in their opening game. They did go 2-1 down but to their credit, battled back to a 2-2 draw thanks to Mickael Pote’s second goal of the match. In their 0-0 draw against Guinea-Bissau they kept things very tight defensively and came away with a 0-0 draw.
Benin have used two unchanged starting line-ups so far so that is expected to continue, although Jodel Dossou will push for a start.
We’re going for a close Cameroon victory here, expecting them to justify favouritism at odds of 4/5. If you wanted some bigger odds then a both teams to score and win bet at 21/5 with Ladbrokes would also fit in with our 2-1 correct score prediction.
Benin played out a 2-2 draw in their first match and if they go a goal down here against Cameroon they will need to play more expansive in the hope of getting an equaliser. Manager Michel Dussuyer will hope his side can sneak into the best third place finishers and get through to the knock-out rounds. We’re rounding off our Benin vs Cameroon predictions with a 2-1 win for Seedorf’s side.
