Cameroon vs Colombia
International Friendly Match
Date: Tuesday, 13th June 2017
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
Cameroon will take on Colombia in mid-week friendly after the successful opening to their African Cup of Nations Qualifications campaign.
The Colombians have been on a good run of form in the recent period and they kept it going last week when they almost saw off Spain in a friendly at Estadio Nueva Condomina in Murcia.
Indomitable Lions had an unsuccessful test back in March when they lost the home friendly to Guinea 1-2.
The Belgian manager Hugo Broos thus had a reason to be worried ahead of the opening of Cup of Nations Qualifications, but Cameroon managed to make a major step towards securing the goal with the initial win over the main rivals for the top spot in the group B.
It was Cameroon’s star man Vincent Aboubakar who made the difference netting the only goal against Morocco just before the half-hour mark.
Colombians made a major step of their own back in March when they claimed consecutive wins over Bolivia and Ecuador in South American WC Qualifiers.
Jose Pekerman’s side proved their huge attacking potential once again on Wednesday when Los Cafeteros bagged two goals in a 2-2 draw in a friendly with Spain.
Edwin Cardona and Radamel Falcao were on target, while James Rodriguez showed a decent display as well.
Cameroon vs Colombia: Head to head
Cameroon had a 2-0 lead in the head to head tie thanks to wins back from 1990 (World Cup) and 2003 (Confederations Cup), but Colombians came out with a demolishing 3-0 victory in a friendly back from mid-October 2012.
Cameroon vs Colombia: Prediction
Broos will most likely rest his key players for Confederations Cup which will open up the way for Colombia to continue their ominous form and snatch an important win ahead of the final challenges in the WC Qualification campaign.
