Burkina Faso vs Cameroon prediction

After losing to Egypt and Senegal, respectively, in the semi-finals of the tournament, Africa Cup of Nations hosts Cameroon face Burkina Faso in the third-place playoff.

Cameroon will have the chance to end the tournament on a high note in front of their home fans following the anguish of the defeat to the Pharoes earlier this week. And, despite the loss to Mohamed Salah and co., the confidence of a third-place finish is probably high in the Indomitable Lions’ dressing room – Cameroon have not suffered defeat against Burkina Faso in any of the last five matches between the two sides.

​Burkina Faso can feel quite proud of their efforts in making it to the playoffs, few had backed them to do so prior to the beginning of the tournament, and even fewer did after they lost their Group A opener to this evening’s opponent, Cameroon.

A brace from Cameroon striker Vincent Aboudakar cancelled out the Gustavo Sangare opener for Burkina Faso and gave the Indomitable Lions a, 2-1, victory on that afternoon.

Since then, Burkina Faso have relied mostly on their defensive acumen to see them through games, aiming to keep things tight at the back and to snatch goals wherever possible.

In fact, Kamou Malo’s side is yet to register more than one goal in any of its AFCON matches to date, a stat that came back to haunt them in, 1-3, semi-final defeat to the offensively fruitful Senagalese in the semi-finals.​

Still, despite the profligacy in front of goal, Burkina Faso head into today’s game unbeaten in 10 of their last 12, scoring 18 goals and conceding just five in that same period.

Malo’s team’s ability to defend as a unit has helped them overcome higher-ranked, better fancied teams right the way through qualifying and into the AFCON main and the knockout phases. So, Cameroon will certainly need to show their opponent respect.

However, all things considered, we find ourselves swayed by Cameroon’s superior, recent head-to-head record and the performance we saw the Indomitable Lions put in against Burkina Faso in the AFCON Group Stage opener.

Unbeaten in five games, determined to go out on a high in front of the home fans, and fresh from beating Faso just a few weeks ago in Group A, we’re backing Cameroon to get a repeat result and finish 3rd place in this year’s AFCON tournament

Burkina Faso vs Cameroon betting tips

We’re backing Toni Conceicao’s Cameroon side to put a smile on the home fans’ faces in tonight’s AFCON third-place playoff match against Burkina Faso.

But checking the recent scorelines between the two teams, we’re expecting things to be close:

Cameroon have won two of the last five games against today’s opponent, while there have been three draws. BTTS bets have also yielded positive results in four out of those five games (2-1, 1-1, 1-1, and 2-3).

Hence, all things considered, we’ve opted to add BTTS to our wager using bet365’s BetBuilder tool.

At bet365, it’s possible to wager on Cameroon to win and BTTS at the improved odds of 10/3, meaning a £10 bet could pay out £43.33.
