Senegal vs Cameroon Betting Tips

  • Double Chance – Home or Draw 21/100 
  • Home Team Clean Sheet – Yes 49/50 
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Sadio Mane 51/20 

Double Chance – Home or Draw 21/100

These two sides last met in this competition in 2017. On that day, the game ended 0-0 and had to go to penalties for a winner to emerge. that was in the quarter finals and Cameroon edged their way into the semifinals. They met once in 2023 in an international friendly and on that day, Senegal walked away victorious with a 1-0 result.

From a form perspective, Senegal is the team to beat, they come into this match on the back of 5 matches without a loss. They also have the first team to score in 4 out of their last 5 matches. their opponents Cameroon have been struggling in recent times. They have no losses in their last 4 matches. However, they have no wins in their last three matches. they have become draw specialists. They have drawn against Guinea, Zambia, and Libya.

To make matters worse for Cameroon, Senegal has not conceded a goal in their last 5 matches. included in those 5 matches is the 1-0 loss Cameroon suffered to Senegal in October of 2023. Win gives Cameroon a 22% chance of winning this game. With all the data considered, I would go for a Home or Draw 21/100 

Home Team Clean Sheet – Yes 49/50

You will have to go back all the way to September 2023 to see the last time Senegal conceded a goal. They have been superb in defense and a lot of that boils down to how they manage games. In their previous outing they dominated position with 69% of the ball, 14 shots, 6 of which were on target and 4 off Target. They faced 12 shots, with their opponent missing 8 and Edouard Mendy having to make 2 saves. This Senegalese side has quality all around the pitch and it will take something special to break them down. That is why I have opted for the home team clean sheet market. if you are agreeing that Senegal will keep a clean sheet in this fixture. The odds are set at 49/50 

Anytime Goal Scorer – Sadio Mane 51/20

Sadio Mane is yet to open his account in this season’s CAF Africa Cup of Nations. He is one of the star forwards of this tournament and many expected him to be competing for this tournament golden boot. In the opening game, he registered an assist and played the full 90 minutes. He was very influential in the match, making 54 touches and 41 passes. We will feature quite a lot for Senegal in this game as well. The odds on him being an anytime goal scorer in this match is set at 51/20
