We will turn our attention to Bet9ja and Helabet for our latest AFCON 2021 betting tips.
Hosts Cameroon started the competition like a house on fire and the flame is still burning as they head into their last-four clash against Egypt.
The indomitable Lions gave the home fans a scare when they went behind against Burkina Faso, but they rallied to get the better of their West African opponents 2-1 in their first game. Since then, it has been pretty much plain sailing for the five-time champions, except against Comoros in the Round of 16 when they were tepid even in victory.
Antonio Conceicao’s men will move closer to a sixth title with a win, but they have their work cut out against a well-drilled Egyptian team. Although the Central Africans will have the support of their vociferous fans, the Cameroonians know just how tough the Egyptians can be with only a win and two draws in their last eight meetings.
Egypt, despite reaching the last four of the Continental showpiece, still have doubts hovering over their heads. The Pharaohs managed to navigate Group D with six points from three games after losing their opening game in a game where they failed to live up to their status on the continent.
Since then, they have recorded victories over Guinea Bissau, Sudan and tournament dark Horses Ivory Coast, before they sent fellow North Africans, Morocco home with a 2 – 1 win in extra time to book a date with Cameroon in the Semifinal.
Carlos Quieroz’s men have been relatively stable defensively, but creating chances and converting them remains a challenge. That is an area the former Champions have to show marked improvement in this fixture if they are to get a pound of flesh for their 2017 loss in the final.
One obvious headache for Quieroz ahead of this game is the spate of injuries which has seen Akram Tawfik, Hardi Fathi and Ahmed Hegazy all sidelined. The first and second choice goalkeepers Mohamed El-Shanawy and Gabaski are also ruled out through injuries, leaving Egypt with inexperienced Mohamed Sobhy.

CAMEROON VS EGYPT BETTING TIPS
On paper, this game is set up to be end-to-end with attacks and counterattacks. Cameroon have been a joy to watch when they are in the attacking phase, with Skipper, Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko Ekambi forming a deadly duo up front. Between them, they have plundered 11 goals. Egypt on their part, have only scored four goals in this tourney, yet they are going to be the biggest test for Cameroon’s defence.
Despite Cameroon’s attacking threat, their defence can be brittle at times. And given the injuries at the back for Egypt, we fancy both sides scoring with a valuable 2.34 odds on Bet9ja Nigeria.
Taking the potential of endless attack and defensive actions on both ends into consideration, the corner markets could be an interesting prospect, with over 7.5 corners priced at 1.30 odds on Helabet as our second betting tip for this match.
