Cameroon vs Burundi Head2Head

This section contains a breakdown of results from their past meetings.

Cameroon and Burundi will face off in their final 2023 AFCON qualifying match scheduled for September 2023 to decide who joins the already qualified nations. Let’s look at a few tips for this game that could be helpful to bettors.

Team Lineup

Bettors need to consider the team lineups before betting on AFCON. The lineup is usually released a few minutes before the match commences so that you can work with it.

While both teams would want to field their best players, the onus is on bettors to carefully vet these players to see if they can deliver. In summary, you need to look out for injured players, an unexpected lineup change from what the teams frequently use to give you the required information for your bets.

Form of Players 

Consider the form of these players before placing your bet. Look out for individual players with outstanding performances in the tournament and, of course, the team’s point man.

Also, keep an eye on the performances of these players at their different clubs’ sides prior to this game to see if they’ve been performing well or poorly. All these will help you make a wise betting decision when it’s time to place your bet. 

Home Advantage

Home advantage has always been a thing in football. Aside from being familiar with the turf, they also have a bigger crowd backing than the visiting team.

This could play out in this game. However, this is not a guarantee that the home team will win, but the Indomitable Lions will get the favourite tag as they play in front of their home fans.

Cameroon Analysis

Cameroon are AFCON regular, appearing in this tournament 20 times and winning 5 times; the second most titles wins behind Egypt (7). 

So far, they’ve performed below expectations in the qualifiers, recording 3 goals and conceding 3. In their run into the final qualifying game, they defeated Burundi by a lone goal away from home, and this could impact their final game as they currently have a head-to-head lead over the Swallows.

We expect the Indomitable Lions to get the all-important points at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium (their home ground) based on their pedigree and the quality of players at their disposal.

Burundi Analysis

Coming into the AFCON qualification phase and being paired with Namibia and Cameroon in Group C, the Swallows were considered the underdog. According to their standard, they’ve put in a good fight, having lost 1 game, drew 1 and won 1 against the current table toppers (Namibia).

One of the few AFCON appearances ever for Burundi was recently in 2019. While making the big stage in Ivory Coast might be a tough call for Etienne Ndayiragije’s boys, we surely can’t rule out an upset against one of Africa’s biggest teams.

Expected Lineup 


Rukundo; Kanakimana, Nshimirimana,

Nsabiyumva, Nduwarugira, Liongola;

Madjaliwa,  Bigirimana, Mvuyekure; Bimenyimana, Shabani
