Canada vs Cameroon | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Monday’s Group E game at Stade de la Mosson pits together Canada and Cameroon. Canada are on a five-game winning run ahead of their 2019 World Cup opener, but they can’t afford any complacency in the clash against the African side. Cameroon were producing fine performances at the 2018 Africa Cup of Nations and they want to play an important role at the showpiece tournament in France as well.
Match Preview Canada vs Cameroon
Canada aim to build on a routine 3-0 win over Mexico in their last warm-up game and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the Stade de la Mosson clash. Cameroon experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 defeat to Spain, but it remains to be seen if they are capable of making life difficult for the 2015 Women’s World Cup hosts in Montpellier.
Canada hosted the 2015 Women’s World Cup and, as a result, they did well to make it to the quarter-finals of the tournament in their homeland. Kenneth Heiner-Moller’s troops aim to book their place in the knockout stages of the upcoming tournament in France as well and they are regarded as hot favourites to win the opener against Cameroon. Canada impressed in friendly games against England (1-0), Nigeria (2-1) and Mexico (3-0) and it has to be noted that they conceded only one goal in total in previous seven matches in all competitions. Captain Christine Sinclair is in the squad and the 35-year-old attacker, who has netted 181 goals in 281 appearances for the national team to date, is likely to prove a handful for Cameroon defenders. You should know that the Portland Thorns superstar take part at the World Cup finals for the fifth time in her career.
As expected, Cameroon were hammered by Spain (0-4) in their final warm-up game, but the fact that Alain Djeumfa’s charges were producing fine displays at the 2018 Africa Cup of Nations is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the 2019 Women’s World Cup opener against Canada. The Indomitable Lionesses did well to win the bronze medal at the tournament in Ghana and to record a good result at the World Cup finals in France as well. Alain Djeumfa’s team made it to the last 16 at the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada, but it remains to be seen if they are capable of repeating the success. One of the women to watch in the African side will be Gabrielle Onguene, who scored two goals for the national team at the 2018 Africa Cup of Nations.
Canada vs Cameroon | Latest Team News
Experienced midfielder Diana Matheson and goalkeeper Erin McLeod both miss the 2019 World Cup finals through injury, but coach Kenneth Heiner-Moller has no other fresh injury concerns ahead of the Cameroon game. Cameroon coach Alain Djeumfa will count on most of the footballers that played in the 2015 World Cup and he is likely to field the best possible side against Canada.
Head to Head Canada vs Cameroon
Canada and Cameroon meet for the first time ever in a competitive match. Canada faced fellow African side Nigeria in a friendly earlier in 2019, with the team beating the Super Falcons 2-1. Cameroon, on the other hand, often struggle in encounters against European sides.
Canada vs Cameroon | Odds and Predictions
Canada are more of a team than Cameroon and, as a result, they are only 1.17 to win their World Cup opener. The Indomitable Lionesses on the other hand, aim to make a miracle in Montpellier and away win is priced 20.00. Bookies offer odds of 7.00 for draw.
Expert Betting Tip
As previously mentioned, Canada have been impressive at the back in 2019. The CONCACAF side look solid as a rock defensively and seeing that Cameroon failed to impress in the 4-0 loss to Spain earlier in May, we are positive that Kenneth Heiner-Moller’s women are going to keep a clean sheet in the Stade de la Mosson showdown. Canada are a very experienced side and the 2015 World Cup quarter-finals are likely to record a routine win over Cameroon at the start of the tournament in France.
