Africa Cup of Nations – Burkina Faso v Cameroon Preview (14/1/17)

Match preview

I have previewed both of these teams in-depth in my pre tournament posts, for more click here. I personally think the strength of each outfit lies in the final third. There are a number of exciting attacking talents on show here and I could see this match being littered with chances. Whether or not a huge amount will be taken is another question, but I think at very worst there should be a couple of goals scored. Therefore, I like backing over 2 goals @ 2.08. This is a slight risk because historically this tournament doesn't contain many goals, especially in the opening rounds. But I don’t see why either of these outfits would operate very defensively, and even if they wanted to then the ability perhaps isn’t there. I have a nagging feeling that this will end a 2-2 draw but I could certainly see either side winning 2-1. The overs is going to be my pick.

Prediction: 2-2

Recommended bet 1 unit: Over 2 goals @ 2.08
