Cameroon head into their final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations group game knowing that they are assured of at least a third place in the group. But against a Benin side keen to prove a point, they cannot take anything lightly.

Africa Cup of Nations live scores: Benin vs Cameroon

Cameroon coach and former Dutch star Clarence Seedorf hopes the Africa Cup of Nations trophy-holders can deliver a more crowd-pleasing performance against Benin in Egypt Tuesday.

The Champions League winner as a player with Ajax Amsterdam, Real Madrid and AC Milan conceded that the 0-0 draw with Ghana at the weekend offered little excitement.

“It may not have been good for the fans and we want to do better, but I saw two organised teams who created enough chances to have won,” he said.

Seedorf defended his tactics after the clash with Ghana fell far short of expectations, saying he always aims to win.

“We never start a match to draw, we start to win, but I was satisfied with a point,” he said of a result that virtually guarantees the Indomitable Lions a last-16 place.

Cameroon lead Group F with four points, two more than Benin and Ghana and three ahead of Guinea-Bissau.

Benin are seeking a first Cup of Nations victory after 11 failed attempts spanning four tournaments and a 0-0 draw with Guinea-Bissau was a huge setback.

The Squirrels are currently third in the group and will need to force a result – and hope that the other match goes in their favour – to have any chance of progression.

This game is 55% likely to fall in favour of Cameroon, according to the number-crunchers. 26% says a draw will befall us, with Benin 19% likely to seal the three points that will see them top the group.


This one’s rather simple: five games between them, five Cameroon victories.
