Cameroon vs. Burundi Preview

On June 11th, Cameroon and El Tri of Mexico played to a 2-2 draw at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego. Despite taking the lead twice through goals from Bryan Mbeumo and Karl Toko Ekambi, Rigobert Song\’s team was unable to hold on and conceded equalizers from Israel Reyes and Kevin Alvarez.

This result means that the Indomitable Lions have not won in four consecutive games in all competitions, since their victory over Congo in the African Nations Championship. Their next opponent is the team they narrowly beat 1-0 in the only previous meeting between the two sides, which took place in June 2022.

The hosts of Tuesday\’s game have won their last two home games and are now aiming for a crucial victory on their turf.

This win is necessary for them to secure a spot in the upcoming AFCON event. Burundi\’s journey in the AFCON qualifiers began with a significant 3-2 win over Namibia at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium on June 20th.

Etienne Ndayiragije\’s team took a comfortable 3-0 lead early on, with Abedi Bigirimana, Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana, and Shabani Hussein all scoring goals.

However, Peter Shalulile and Wendell Rudath scored in each half, making for an exciting finish. Les Hirondelles currently sit third in the group with four points, tied with Cameroon and only one point behind the group leaders, Namibia.

The visitors set to play on Tuesday have only managed to secure one away victory since 2020. Therefore, their upcoming encounter on enemy territory is a must-win situation, and they need to step up their game when playing away from home.

Cameroon\’s form in Africa Cup of Nations Qualifying rounds is WDL, while their form in all competitions is WWLDLD.

On the other hand, Burundi\’s form in the Africa Cup of Nations Qualifying rounds is DLW, and their form in all competitions is LLDW.
