We’re entering the final matchday of the AFCON Group Stage on Monday afternoon. Hosts Cameroon lead Group A on six points with Burkina Faso and Cape Verde in second and third on three points. Ethiopia are yet to get off the mark and would need a small miracle to qualify thanks to their -4 goal difference going into the final game.

Let’s get stuck into the 4pm kick-off double-header and see if there’s any value to be found in the markets.


*A double with these two bets pays at approximately 10/1 with Paddy Power. CLICK HERE TO ADD IT TO YOUR BETSLIP.

Burkina Faso vs Ethiopia: Burkina Faso to Win & BTTS

TV: Sky Sports Premier League

A win here for Burkina Faso would see them qualify in second place unless they lose or draw and Cape Verde take the spoils against Cameroon. The market is expecting a win for the Stallions and with Ethiopia all-but out of the competition, they should be able to advance to the next round. The Burkinese have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five in all competitions, scoring seven and conceding four.

Ethiopia have won just one of their last five, drawing two and losing two, scoring six goals and conceding nine. Of course they’ve not going to make it easy and with Both Teams to Score landing in four of their last five games they could well draw some blood here. Excluding friendlies, BTTS has landed in three of Burkina Faso’s last five games. They certainly have the superior form too and with a place in the next round as the proverbial carrot they’ll be going for it and should come out on top over the 90 minutes. We’re looking then at a mighty value price for Burkina Faso to Win and Both Teams To Score here.

Cape Verde vs Cameroon: Both Teams to Score

TV: Sky Sports Football & Main Event

Cape Verde will face a stern test here as they look to secure a place in the next round of the competition. Cameroon are assured of their place although they’ve not cemented a top spot finish as of yet. The Indomitable Lions have won all six of their most recent games and although playing as the ‘away side’ here they’re quite obviously the hosts of the tournament and a home crowd will be behind them all the way.

Cape Verde’s results are decent too, winning three of their last five, drawing one and losing one, scoring five and conceding three. Cameroon’s five most recent at home have seen BTTS landing in three and Cape Verde share the same stat over their last five away games. BTTS is still way over Evens at time of writing and with both in good goal-scoring nick we’re getting some great value.
