Senegal vs. Cameroon is the absolute derby of the round at AFCON this Friday. The two contenders for the title, one who is the reigning champion and the other who was eliminated in the semis at the previous competition, clash to measure their strength. Both teams are called Lions, one Teranga, the other Indomitable, and we are sure that their approach would be brave and aggressive, just like their nicknames.

Senegal vs. Cameroon Preview

Senegal

The champs have cruised past Gambia in the first round without any problems, triumphing 3-0 and displaying one excellent performance. Lamine Camara netted two goals, both in the second half, while Pape Gueye opened the show after only four minutes.

Such an opening was very beneficial for the Lions of Teranga as Gambia needed to open after that, leaving plenty of space for Mane and the boys to create havoc in the rear.

By the way, this was the fifth consecutive event in which Senegal didn’t lose, winning four and having only one tie during the stretch – against Togo on the road in the World Cup qualifiers, 0-0. Also, throughout this interval, Senegal’s defense didn’t allow a single goal, which is highly impressive.

Cameroon

Rigobert Song’s boys have three straight draws with the completely same result, 1-1. It all started against Lybia in the World Cup qualifiers and extended against Zambia in a friendly game, concluding with Monday’s meeting against Guinea.

Indomitable Lions were behind since the 10th minute when Guinea netted, but their rivals lost a player on the field just before halftime. Cameroon pushed as hard as possible, managing to level the score right after the pause, but nothing more than that.

We noticed that the defense isn’t as strong as before, and the results show that. Only two clean sheets in the recent ten appearances say enough. That’s the main reason why Cameroon has only two wins in the past 10 events.

Senegal vs. Cameroon Head to Head

Senegal defeated Cameroon in October last year, 1-0, in a friendly international that took place in Lens, at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. Mane was the sole scorer in this one. Also, we want to say that the last nine games saw one or no goals.

Senegal vs. Cameroon Predictions

The stakes are high here, particularly for Cameroon, which needs to stay unbeaten to keep its chances for the next round. However, we don’t think they will manage to do that because of a very poor defense. Senegal’s attack is simply too powerful, and we expect the Lions of Teranga to win this event and secure the spot in the knockout stage.

Our verdict: Senegal wins
