LionsBet Preview: Nigeria – Cameroon: Back the Super Eagles not to keep a clean sheet

23:48 IST 31/08/2017
With their qualification hopes hanging in the balance, both sides will go out with everything they’ve got

Nigeria play host to reigning African champions Cameroon at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Friday’s crunch Group B World Cup qualifier.

The Super Eagles top the group with six points having secured victories over Zambia and Algeria. They lead their rivals by four points and a win quoted by LionsBet at (1.85) would ensure they extend the gap.

The Indomitable Lions sit in second place in Group B having drawn their two games. This puts the 2017 Afcon winners on the back foot and they know that anything but a win at odds of (4.40) would make their hopes of making it to Russia more difficult.

A draw after 90 minutes is offered at (3.15) by the same firm.

Gernot Rohr’s men have averaged two goals in each of their last two World Cup qualifiers. Backing that outcome in Uyo is available at (1.45).

The men in green have failed to keep a clean sheet in Group B and are therefore priced at (1.70) to concede again.

The Super Eagles have met Cameroon on 20 occasions and have triumphed 10 times, drawing six and losing four. With the head to head record favouring the West African giants, they are (1.16) for a win or draw with LionsBet.
