CMR vs ETH Dream11 Prediction for Cameroon vs Ethiopia Africa Cup of Nations Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


CMR vs ETH Dream11: The hosts, Cameroon, started their tournament in shaky fashion as they fell behind against Burkina Faso early on. They did manage two goals after that, though, to take the lead just before half-time and eventually they held on. They come up against an Ethiopia side that had a man sent off against Cape Verde early on but it wasn’t likely to have a major impact on the score line as Cape Verde had already started much the better side. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is expected to start this one after coming on as a sub in the opening match and the home team are expected to win this one quite comfortably.

Who will win today’s CMR vs ETH match?

  • Cameroon came from behind to defeat Burkina Faso in their AFCON 2021 opener on Sunday. Both goals were scored from the spot in their 2-1 win, so they’ll hope to show more of a goal threat from open play against Ethiopia.
  • Ethiopia put in a spirited display against Cape Verde after being reduced to 10 men early on, yet a 1-0 win means they need to at least avoid defeat to really harbour any hopes of progression to the next round of the tournament. A meeting with Cameroon is not what they will have wanted as they seek to secure a positive result.
  • The Indomitable Lions did well to recover from their early setback on Sunday, but should enjoy a more comfortable victory on Thursday.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Cameroon in this clash is 1.26 as per bet365.
