On Tuesday afternoon, Libya hosts Cameroon in Group D of African World Cup qualifying as both teams look to build on opening game wins.Libya form guide
The home team opened their qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win in Eswatini. The victory made Libya unbeaten in their last four international outings.
The game was yet another low-scoring outing for Milutin Sredojevic’s side, as five of their previous six matches have now produced under 2.5 goals.
The victory in their opening qualifier ended a four-game winless run in World Cup qualifying for Libya.
Similar to their recent international games in all competitions, their recent qualifiers have not exactly been goal-filled, as six of their previous eight qualifiers have produced under 2.5 goals.
Libya’s recent home form in World Cup qualifying has been poor, with just one win in their previous four home qualifiers.Cameroon form guide
The Indomitable Lions have been struggling for consistency lately, as they have won just two of their previous eight international matches.
However, when it comes to World Cup qualifying, Cameroon have a decent recent record, as they have won six of their last eight qualifiers over 90 minutes and one in extra time. Their only defeat in the run was a 1-0 home loss against Algeria.
Good recent defensive performances have been the key to their good form in recent qualifiers, as they have kept clean sheets in five of their last six qualifiers over 90 minutes.
Cameroon are also unbeaten in their previous three away games in World Cup qualifying while losing just two of their last 11 qualifiers away from home.What am I backing?
Both teams started their Group D campaigns with wins. I believe that Cameroon has superior quality and will record a narrow victory in a low-scoring encounter.
