Match Preview

Fans of both Benin (FIFA rank: #88) and Cameroon (#51) will be hoping for a little more excitement from this Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group F final fixture; after all three games on June 29th ended goalless – including both of these sides. In fact, only one match involving any side in Group F has not ended in a draw so far – a 2-0 opening day victory for Cameroon.
Despite registering their first goalless draw of 2019, Benin remain unbeaten in all matches this year (W3, D2). Notably, ‘Les Écureuils’ have opened the scoring in all of their matches prior to that this year, and twice against higher-ranked opposition than themselves.
Current Benin manager, Michel Dussuyer, drew in his only prior managerial clash with Cameroon (1-1). However, Cameroon have won all five previous H2Hs in all competitions with both teams scoring in all three played this century.
After winning just one of his first five games in charge of Cameroon (W1, D2, L2); Clarence Seedorf is now unbeaten in three (W2, D1). Notably, both teams found the net only in his first game, whilst only one match saw over 2.5 total goals (average of 1.375 total goals p/match).
Players to watch: Veteran forward Mickaël Poté has scored Benin’s only two AFCON goals across their last four group games – he has seven goals from 46 international caps.
Cameroon centre-half Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui top-scored with two goals en-route to winning the 2017 AFCON – both of those goals arrived after the 70th minute.
Stat attack: Benin have received exactly two bookings in both of their AFCON group games.
Cameroon won at both half-time and full-time (W/W) in both competitive H2Hs post-2000.
Cameroon have failed to win each of their last three final group games at AFCON finals, failing to score in each of the last two (D2, L1).
