Both teams look forward to securing a win, to fix their positions for the next round of qualifiers.

This is going to be a nail-biting event as both the teams are of almost the same calibre. Both teams will be playing their 3rd match in the 2026 FIFA World Cup African qualifiers.

As of now, Cameroon and Cape Verde both stand with the same points and the only thing that separates them is the goal difference. Cape Verde have played more matches this year comparatively, but the performances are overall on the same level. The Blue Sharks have never qualified for the FIFA World Cup, so this can be their chance to make progress in that direction.

In the last few matches of both teams, there have been mixed results and therefore it’s tough to predict the outcome of their clash. However, the hosts are in a much better position, since they are ahead in the points table and this is the team which has given results in the past.
