Nigeria vs Cameroon prediction
Three-time African Champions, Nigeria take another step towards glory as they battle Cameroon in the round of 16 of the African Cup of Nations. Despite recording a slow start to the tournament, the Super Eagles of Nigeria miraculously will be playing knockout football in the Afcon again following consecutive wins against the host nation, Ivory Coast, and the Djurtus of Guinea. Nigeria’s trajectory in this tournament has been laced with luck, although they have been immaculate when it comes to defending but they have been poor in the creation and conversion of chances. As the tournament gets to a really tense stage they need to start getting ruthless in taking their chances or else it would be the end of the road for Jose Peseiro and his team.
Cameroon on the other hand had a really rough start to the tournament, having recorded a loss against reigning champions, Senegal, and a draw against Guinea. However, they still managed to progress into the knockout stages after showing their resilience in a 2-3 victory over already-eliminated, Gambia. The return of Toto Ekambi to the Cameroonian squad also proved instrumental but in turn, makes them far more dangerous.
This is a headline-maker in the context of African football. Both teams head into this clash each with a strong statement to make. This is a must-win for Nigeria’s head coach, Jose Peseiro who is currently on the ropes following a semi-final ultimatum given to him by the NFF and a loss here would mean the end of his reign as Coach. For Cameroon, securing the quarter-final ticket would end the controversies arising in respect to Rigobert Song’s regime as the manager of the Indomitable Lions. Who then will get saved? Well, it is all to play for here so expect an intense contest. Our Nigeria vs Cameroon prediction is Nigeria Win (DNB), and we recommend the Draw No Bet market.

Prediction 3: Under 3.5 Goals
Since kickoff, the AFCON has witnessed some games with pretty high scorelines, but matches like this at this stage often see most prolific Nations restrategize with close attention to the Knockout format. At this point, committing too much bodies to attacks will have you punished, so most teams rather settle for moments to capitalize on, which so far, Nigeria has been good at. Expect less goals here as it would be a battle of wits between the Africa’s finests. The Under 3.5 Goals market has a huge odd at Paripesa! play and win big!
