Harambee Starlets vs Cameroon predictions

This match is important for both teams who are looking to make it into the second qualifying round. As such, this match will decide who marches on to the decisive round. Here are our predictions for this battle.

Prediction 1: Harambee Stars to Win

The Kenyan ladies proved their worth in the 1-0 loss to Cameroon a couple of days ago. The match was keenly contested and had Cameroon not scored early they'd have drawn the match. Going by Harambee Stars' first leg performance, a win at home looks likely for the team who will play with home support and confidence. Although they haven't won in their last three matches, they'll be eager to bounce back to winning ways and there's no better time to do this than now.

Prediction 2: Cameroon to Score First

The Indomitable Lionesses have scored first in all of their last four matches going into this clash. Although they're stronger than their opponent and have found the back of the net in their last four matches, we don't see them winning this second leg, but they have all it takes to take the lead and we're backing them to do so.

Prediction 3: Both Teams to Score

Although a goalless draw will see Cameroon qualify, however, we don't think this match will end scoreless. Going by this, both teams will come out to score with an away goal looking an interesting prospect for the Cameroon ladies. For the Harambee Starlets, they need goals to qualify and they'll fight to get them; all of these puts this game in a likely scoring affair for the two teams.
