The second round of fixtures in the Africa Cup of Nations begins on Wednesday when Group A plays out its second set of games. That means we see the hosts Gabon back in action along with many judges dark horses Cameroon.
All four sides in this group go into the matches on one point after both opening games finished 1-1 so there is plenty to play for over the course of Wednesday.
Gabon vs Burkina Faso
The first two sides to get the chance to break clear from the pack are the hosts Gabon and 2013 finalists Burkina Faso. Gabon will be looking to bounce back from injury time heartache in their first match while Burkina Faso will be aiming to build on a solid start when they drew with Cameroon.
Gabon are the favourites to win this and having backed them outright I hope they do but I’ve a feeling we’re going to see some attacking and entertaining football throughout the day and the bet I like here is for both teams to score.
That happened in the first game for both sides and neither defence totally convinced me. With that in mind I think both will adopt an attacking mindset in this game which opens up the potential for both sides to find the net at a tidy price.
Cameroon vs Guinea-Bissau
Tournament debutants Guinea-Bissau take on the multi-time champions Cameroon in the second game in what is a huge game for both sides. Guinea-Bissau had a brilliant start to their debut tournament but they need to guard against a comedown from that because Cameroon looked a lot better than they have previously done against Burkina Faso and could come on for the run.
I really like Cameroon in this match. I was impressed by what I saw of them in their opener and their scoring options are there for all to see. I don’t think there will be many big wins in this tournament but this certainly has the potential to be one so I’m happy to take the goals and Cameroon on the handicap against a side who might get brought down to earth with a bump.
