Afcon 2021 is heating up and the highly anticipated semi-final stage is almost upon us with exciting opportunities for football betting.
Following a 2-1 victory over Morocco in the quarterfinals, Egypt have sailed through to the semi-finals to meet with host country Cameroon. The match is set to take place on the 3rd of February at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde and it’s already igniting a sense of déjà vu in fans as both teams hold the most titles in Afcon history.
Cameroon vs Egypt Head-to-Head
Examining their past performance, the two teams have squared off a total of nine times in the last 20 years, six of which have been Afcon fixtures. The Indomitable Lions have only managed to win twice in these nine clashes, with the Pharaohs winning five and two games being drawn.
As far as Afcon records are concerned, Egypt boast the most titles, being Afcon winners seven times as opposed to a closely-followed Cameroon with five wins. The host team seem to be in strong form. They’ve only conceded four goals in their last six matches and will be hoping to continue their winning ways to reach the Afcon final.
Egypt started off on shaky ground in the Afcon group stage, but they’ve managed to pick themselves back up. They’ll be counting on superstar Mo Salah to help them navigate their tough opponents this Thursday.
