Match Preview:

Ivory Coast entered the international break on top of the table, having gone unbeaten in their first four games so far. Their only blip on an otherwise perfect record was a goalless draw against Mozambique in the opening match of second round qualification. A statement victory against Cameroon in the first fixture between the two put Ivory Coast in pole position, where they have picked up three wins from their following trio of fixtures. 


Should Cameroon have hopes of upsetting the group leaders and sneaking through to the third round themselves, they will have to do something that they have not managed since 2014 and beat Ivory Coast in a competitive match. A 4-1 demolition of the West African nation remains their last win over Ivory Coast, making their task on Saturday a difficult proposition. Defeat against Ivory Coast in the corresponding fixture is the only time that Cameroon have dropped points in the group, with back-to-back victories against both Mozambique and Malawi helping to maintain their World Cup dreams.


By the time that Qatar 2022 rolls around, it will have been eight years since the Indomitable Lions last graced the world stage, with a significant drop-off experienced from their golden generation of the past. Once the envy of African football, Cameroon qualified for seven World Cups in nine attempts between 1982 and 2014, with their best performance a quarter-final finish at the 1990 tournament. Arresting those past demons will offer some inspiration for the Cameroon side, as they look to cause an upset in the final group match of second round qualifying.
