Nigeria vs Cameroon predictions:

It's worth mentioning that these teams played out a goalless draw in the first leg of this tie a couple of days ago.

On that note, these are our Nigeria vs Cameroon predictions:

Prediction 1: Nigeria to win

Nigeria's Super Falcons have dominated Cameroon in the past. In 12 previous skirmishes between these outfits, they emerged victorious on nine occasions, losing just twice.

As a matter of time, the Indomitable Lionesses have no wins in the last four skirmishes between these outfits.

It's also worth mentioning that the Super Falcons have fared a lot better than their opponents these past few weeks. While Nigeria are on a five-match unbeaten run, Cameroon managed just two wins in their last six games.

Considering the Super Falcons have the advantage of playing at home, we are fairly confident that they'll win this match.

Prediction 2: One team will fail to score

For our next Nigeria vs Cameroon prediction, let's explore the BTTS market.

We've pointed out that Nigeria did not lose any of their last four clashes with Cameroon. It's also worth noting they didn't concede any goals in that four game stretch.

In fact, the Indomitable Lionesses failed to score in six of the last seven meetings between these teams.

At least one team blanked in three of Nigeria's last four games, and in all of Cameroon's last five matches. Bearing in mind that the first leg ended goalless, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Where to watch Nigeria vs Cameroon on TV
