Cameroon opened their Africa Cup of Nations campaign with a 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau. Ghana dropped a 2-1 lead against Benin in the second half and salvaged a point after John Boye’s second yellow card card. This clash could decide the first position in Group F, and Cameroon will probably secure the top spot with a victory here.

Cameroon Team News and Latest Form
The Indomitable Lions experienced a strong start of the AFCON with a 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau and now they are on a run of four games without a loss (W3, D1). They opened the scoring in three of the four games while also scored 2+ goals in three of the four.
Even though Cameroon have been in a fine form, their games have been far from high-scoring. In their last ten matches, both teams scored on only three occasions while there were over 2.5 goals just twice. Despite this, across that ten-game run, there was only one game without goals.
Defender Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui is always a threat from set-pieces, and he scored when these two rivals previously met in 2017. Just one of Cameroon’s last five goals allowed came in the first 30 minutes.
Ghana Team News and Latest Form
Ghana earned a draw in their AFCON opener (2-2), but they recorded only one loss in six games (W3, D2, L1). Key to their relative good run of form has been fast start. Of their last eight goals scored, four came in the opening 30 minutes, although they did allow at least one goal in two of those four goals.
Brothers Andre and Jordan Ayew both got on the scoresheet in Ghana’s AFCON opener and will be looking to outscore each other in the tournament’s scoring charts. Three of Ghana’s previous four victories have been to nil.
Cameroon vs Ghana Head to Head
James Kwesi Appiah’s men haven’t beaten their rivals in any of the last four H2H duels (W2, D2). In a similar manner to Tuesday’s victory, when these teams last met, Cameroon scored a pair of goals after the 65th minute to book a 2-0 win. Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui and Christian Bassogog scored in that encounter. Cameroon conceded just one goal in those four meetings and scored four in return.
Cameroon vs Ghana Betting Tip
Cameroon scored 2+ goals in three of their last four games and the only time when they scored just one; they drew with Mali. Ghana have excellent players in the attack who are capable of unlocking any defence and given they must try to hit the net here, I am backing both teams to score at great 2.30 (+130) odds.
My additional pick would be a draw as it looks that Cameroon would be happy with a point. You can back a draw at 3.00 (+200) and BTTS on separate single bets while you can also give it a go with a combo of Draw/BTTS at 5.00 (+400) but go with a lower stake.
