Cameroon vs Mali
International – Friendlies
Date: Friday, June 14th 2019
Kick off @ 18:00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Cameroon and Mali will be taking on each other only for the third time in history, when they meet for an international friendly match on Friday. With both teams scheduled to contest in the African Cup of Nations, which begins in Egypt in less than two weeks, both the teams will be heading into the clash eyeing a win.
The pressure however will be on Mali, who were handed a defeat in their last outing against Senegal. Up against a Cameroon side which found the net five times while conceded just once in their last two matches, the game will be a tough test for the Mohamed Magassouba’s side.
Cameroon vs Mali Head to head (h2h)
- Mali take on Cameroon for the third time in the country’s history
- Mali are yet to register a win against Cameroon
- Their last meeting, which was in 2015, ended in a 1-1 draw after Mali’s opener was cancelled by Ambroise Oyongo’s late equaliser.
- Prior to their encounter in 2015, Mali suffered a 3-0 defeat to Cameroon in the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations in 2002.
Cameroon vs Mali Prediction
Cameroon who are on a two match winning streak are most likely to post a win, against Mali on Friday. Clarence Seedorf’s men have been playing a solid game with only two loses in their previous five games, one of which came at the hands of Brazil. The team will definitely be in high spirits to snatch a third victory before they begin their group stage matches of the African cup of nations.
Mali on the other hand are fresh off an unfortunate away defeat against Senegal, where they went from one goal up to two goals down in the final five minutes of the match. Mohamed Magassouba will certainly have to ensure that his team do not squander any chances on Friday, especially with the opposition recently firing in five goals and conceding just one in their previous two matches.
To sum up, Cameroon look most likely to win the match, and I wouldn’t be surprise if they achieve this with a clean sheet.
