Cameroon vs Ethiopia Pick & Prediction
Last time out, Cameroon opened the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations with a 2-1 win over Burkina Faso. The Lions dominated this game and deserved this win. Vincent Aboubakar, who plays for Al-Nassr in the Audi Pro League, converted two penalties in the final eight minutes of the first half to give the host nation a win. Cameroon had 59% possession, four shots on goals, and had 52 dangerous attacks. Burkina Faso took the early lead with a Gustavo Sangare goal in the 24th minute.
Ethiopia got their Africa Cup of Nations started with a disappointing 1-0 loss to Cape Verde. Yared Baye received a straight red card in the 12th minute, and it was all an uphill battle for the Ethiopians. Cape Verde still had a tough time breaking the 10-man team down but did get the win thanks to a Julio Tavares goal in the 45th minute. Ethiopia had 43% possession, just one shot on goal, one corner, and 20 dangerous attacks.
