Benin vs Cameroon, Tuesday’s match for the Africa Cup of Nations, Group F, at the Ismailia Stadium in Ismailia, Egypt.
Benin is hoping to secure a place in the Africa Cup of Nations knockout phase in this crucial match against Cameroon at Ismailia Stadium on Tuesday night. The Squirrels expect a difficult game but believe they can beat Cameroon. Benin showed no fear in the game against Ghana, Michel Dussuyer’s men after they lost at half-time, reacted and were behind the result having won a draw.
Now with only one game to finish the group stage, this match is of decisive character for Benin, as they need three points to stamp their entry into the next phase. Michael Pot who will try to make his team play a game similar to the one he made in the opening game. Benin can play with the same eleven, but with some players with some quality in the bench, as Jodel Dossou cannot rule out that he can be included in the main eleven.
The current champions of this competition only need a point to secure a berth in the round of 16, but looking at the quality of Benin should be a rather complicated game but with their higher quality of play they should adopt an offensive game. Like Benin, Cameroon played well in their opening match, but Seedorf’s side were not as effective against Benin in their second game as they had in their defense, but they did not concede a goal.
The team had most of the ball possession but could not attack as it intended, they had fifteen attempts, but few went in the direction of the goal. Cameroon are the only ones to have a Group F win, but a negative result in this game against Benin could complicate matters. Maxim Choupo-Moting is expected to return to the headlines; otherwise he seems to believe everything looks the same.
As the holder of the highest quality in their football, Cameroon are favorites to win this game.
