CMR vs BNI Dream 11 Team: Table toppers Cameroon look to seal down first place while Benin look to assure themselves of a berth in the round of 16
Benin Vs Cameroon AFCON Best Dream 11 Team
One of the most competitive and closely contested of the 6 groups in the Africa Cup Of Nations, Group F’s fortunes are set to be decided today. With each and every of the four teams in the group still in with a shout of reaching the round of 16, the culminating group stage fixtures have all the ingredients of being crackling contests today.
And out of the two remaining fixtures, Benin vs Cameroon promises to be the most topsy-turvy and tantalisingly poised match. Although Cameroon currently occupy top spot with the four points currently, they have the biggest surprise package of the group snapping at their heels in second place.
And with the group so finely poised, the clash between the two holds massive ramifications. While a win for Cameroon would assure them of first place, a win for Benin would take them all the way into first spot, leaving Cameroon relying on Ghana to be defeated to get the second direct qualification spot from the group. A draw would massively impact the scenario as well in a group which is a testament to the intriguing nature of the football the showpiece tournament was conceptualised to offer to viewers.
With both sides yet to lose a match in the league, this is an encounter between two finely poised sides, one who are going to be extremely difficult to break apart on the day. Sitting in second place with the 2 points after two draws with Ghana and Guinea-Bissau, Benin have massively impressed especially on the back of their shutout against Cameroon.
Elsewhere currently in first position after defeating Guinea-Bissau 2-0 and drawing 0-0 with Ghana, we are going to side with table toppers Cameroon for this one solely on the basis of their defence. There’s going to be little margin for error in this cliff-hanger with fine margins deciding the winner and we see Cameroon’s defence curtailing whatever Benin will have to offer upfront.
Goal-Keeper for CMR vs BNI Dream 11
Andre Onana from Cameroon is our undisputed pick for this one. The shot stopper has imbued in him a slew of shot stopping abilities, a player who is well aware of the demands needed to succeed at the international level. Expect him to snare vital save points and become a mainstay of his and your Dream 11 side today.
Defenders for CMR vs BNI Dream 11
One of the few countries to yet concede a goal in the marquee tournament, Cameroon’s success has been born solely from the resolute nature of their backline. The defensive setup has been well drilled on how to position themselves, read attacks and put in timely tackles and this sees us opting for a trio of defensive options for their side.
Coming in from the favourites for today are Ambroise Oyongo, Michael Ngadeu Ngadjui and Yaya Banana, someone responsible for getting himself one of the two goals the side have managed to score up till now.
Benin haven’t been too bad themselves in defence with the one cleansheet in their kitty as well and owing that resilient pefromance against Cameroon, Junior Salomon comes into our line-up for today.
Midfielders for CMR vs BNI Dream 11
We have opted for a trio of options from Benin over here to compensate for the picks from their side with CDM Jordan Adeoti and his partner in the pivot in the centre of the park, Stephane Sessengon coming in as well. If Benin are to come away from this one with a result to their name, the defensive minded midfielders will need to put up a wall infront of their defence and keep themselves right on top of Cameroon’s strike force by applying the incessant pressure to break up attacks.
Attacking minded Cebio Soukou comes in as well while Cameroon are going to be represented by Andre Zambo Auguissa, their disrupter in the middle of the park and Karl Toko Ekambi.
Strikers for CMR vs BNI Dream 11
With both the sides having managed to score just the four goals in between them in four matches, we are not going to indulge in too many striker. The sole pick in the form of Clinton Njie has been selected by us to make a foray into our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Both the defenders are chosen for this one, both from Cameroon with Michael our captain while Yaya has been opted for as the vice-captain.,
