Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2024 match:
Cameroon will look to record their first win at the Africa Cup of Nations when they take on Gambia at Stade de la Paix. The Indomitable Lions failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Senegal, but a win over Gambia could see them sneak into the knockout stages. Rigobert Song has no fresh injury worries, but Samsun midfielder Olivier Ntcham could be recalled to the starting XI.
The nominal hosts, on the other hand, aim to recover from back-to-back losses to Senegal (0-3) and Guinea (0-1). As the Gambians are struggling both up front and at the back, we believe that the time has come for Cameroon to register their first win at the showpiece tournament in Ivory Coast. Ebou Adams serves the second of his two-game ban, while both Hamza Barry and Yankuba Minteh are pushing for a start.
