Cameroon vs Nigeria
World – Friendlies
Date: Tuesday, 8 June 2021
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Wiener Neustadt.
Nigeria as well as Cameroon are amongst the best in Africa, and are top-performers in international football as well. Both have a healthy rivalry going on, and are in form at the moment. The expectation is that goals will come from both sides of the pitch.
Nigeria are ranked 32nd in the world, and had made it till the semis of the 2019 African Cup of Nations. In the penultimate round, they fell against eventual winners Algeria.
Note that they had made it to the knockouts with a second-place finish in Group B, and had conceded the least number of goals in the group.
Going on, they had finished at the top of the Group L table in the 2021 African Cup of Nations Qualifiers. They had gone through the whole campaign without a loss, and had scored the most number of goals in the group.
In fact, they had scored more goals than all the other teams in the group combined.
Meanwhile, Cameroon are ranked 55th in the world, and they had made it till the Round of 16 in the 2019 Cup of Nations. They were second in Group F in the preliminary round, and impressively, they had not conceded a single goal before the knockouts.
Moreover, do also take into account the fact that they had topped Group F in the 2021 Qualifiers, and had scored the most number of goals during the while.
Furthermore, majority of h2h encounters also had goals from both teams.
Likely, expect another goal-fest this Tuesday between these two.
Cameroon vs Nigeria: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Six of the past eight overall clashes had three or more goals.
- Nine of the former fifteen encounters had goals from both teams.
- Cameroon have never failed to find the back of the net at home.
- In such fixtures, only twice have the guests failed to score as well, since 1968.
Cameroon vs Nigeria Prediction
Cameroon were unbeaten in 24 of their last 30 overall games, and they have lost just twice at home since May of 2018.
On the other hand, their counterparts have lost just twice since September of 2019, and they have lost just once on the road since July of 2019.
On top of that, most of the h2h clashes over the years have had goals in huge numbers as well.
With either team in good form, the inference is that both teams will find the back of the net this Tuesday.
