Cameroon win by 1 goal against Guinea-Bissau is Bet of the Day for 25/06/19

The Africa Cup of Nations group stage action just keeps coming in Egypt. Group F gets underway this Tuesday with defending champions Cameroon against Guinea-Bissau (Eurosport, kick-off: 18:00 BST).

A bold bid from the five-time and defending African champions – ahead of them hosting the next AFCON finals in 2021 – looks assured.

Indomitable Lions coach Clarence Seedorf was one of the best midfielders of modern times. This is his 10th game at the helm and he selected a squad of overseas players for the tournament.

Most of those play in Europe including Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana and PSG forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Cameroon start odds-on favourites for a routine win over Guineas-Bissau, so victory is expected.

In three previous meetings, the Indomitable Lions have just edged this opposition by a single goal every time.

However, that makes a Cameroon win by 1 goal well worth a wager at 21/10 with Boylesports here.

Guinea-Bissau arrive at AFCON in poor form with just one victory in their last six, so a struggle looks likely.

FIFA world rankings have them 67 places below Cameroon, therefore it’s a big ask for them.

This in many ways is the perfect opener for the Indomitable Lions and, while Guinea-Bissau have proved tough to break down in the past, there is a gulf in class.

Cameroon met this opposition in the group stage of the last AFCON finals two years ago. As they came from behind to win 2-1, the Indomitable Lions know this may prove tougher in practice than on paper.

Sterner tests lie ahead for Seedorf’s side, so this is more about getting a resulting than laying a marker down.

His Indomitable Lions have a clear edge on quality and strength-in-depth, while Guinea-Bissau have conceded an average of a goal across their last four competitive games.

Bet of the Day: 21/10 with Boylesports, Cameroon win by 1 goal against Guinea-Bissau.
