Cameroon vs Nigeria predictions:

It's worth mentioning that this is a two-legged tie, and both teams will square off against each other in the second leg next week. On that note, these are our Cameroon vs Nigeria predictions:

Prediction 1: Nigeria to win

We would like to point out that the Super Falcons have enjoyed some fine form lately. They won three matches in a row, scoring 11 times whilst conceding just once.

This is in contrast with Cameroon, who have struggled to find their best form in recent months. The Indomitable Lionesses lost three of their last five matches in all competitions, winning just twice.

It's also important to note that the Super Falcons have dominated Cameroon in the past, winning five of the last six encounters between these outfits.

Taking everything into account, anything other than a win for Nigeria would be a surprise.

Prediction 2: One team will fail to score

Our next Cameroon vs Nigeria prediction is on the BTTS market.

We've established that the Super Falcons came out on top in five of the last six skirmishes between these teams. As a matter of fact, they kept five clean sheets in those six meetings.

In the same vein, while Cameroon failed to score in two of their last three matches, the Super Falcons did not concede in two of their last three games.

On that note, we believe that one of these teams will blank.
