Cameroon vs Algeria
World Cup Qualification CAF
Date: Friday, 25 March 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Limbe Stadium.

Algeria were the champions of Africa in 2019, and despite the best of their efforts, they were unable to defend the title in 2021. However, this seems to have motivated them to aim for higher.

They had a great campaign so far in the Qualifiers – and thus managed to top Group A. And they had done it in style as well. In fact, such was their offense that they had scored the same number of goals, as that of the second-placed and third-placed squads combined in their group.

Meanwhile, Cameroon had secured the third place in the recently-concluded Cup of Nations. They had made it till the semis, where they were eliminated by eventual runners-up Egypt.

The team showed the same kind of form in their World Cup Qualifiers as well. To quote a stat – they have a 100% winning record in the Second Round, barring a single fixture. They had also scored the most number of goals in the Group, as well as had conceded the least.

Moreover, majority of h2h meetings between the two teams have also had goals in huge numbers.

Taking into account these observations, expect a high-scoring affair this Friday.

Cameroon vs Algeria Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Since 1986, 100% of meetings had goals from both teams – barring one fixture.
  • Three of the past six clashes had three or more goals.
  • The Cameroonians had scored two or more goals in all but one of their appearances at home.

Cameroon vs Algeria Prediction & Analysis

The Cameroonians are on an 11-game unbeaten run, and impressively nine of these were wins. They had also remained invincible in 15 of their past 16 fixtures.

They had also scored two or more goals in all of their Cup of Nations fixtures just two months back – excluding just two games.

On the other hand, the Algerians were the previous champions of Africa, and though they failed to defend their crown – their offense has been in spectacular form.

They had slotted goals in plenty all through their qualification campaign, and most importantly, these two squads have combined to produce several goal-fests in their h2h history.

By the looks of things, anticipate goals to come in plenty this weekend.
