The host Cameroon will take on Egypt at the Paul Biya Stadium on Thursday in the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations.
The hosts came out on top when the last time these two teams faced each other. They managed to get a 2-1 win in the 2017 final, but a lot has changed since then.
Egypt will again look up to Mo Salah to get them through while the hosts will have the crowd support that will back them.
Cameroon and Egypt campaign so far
Cameroon are having a sensational Africa Cup of Nations campaign so far, thanks to the home support. They have a chance to reach in Finals for the second time in five years.
They started their campaign on January 9 by beating Burkina Faso in the competition’s curtain-raiser. The Indomitable Lions then got past Ethiopia with a convincing 4-1 victory.
The Indomitable Lions are coming into this match with exemplary form as they are unbeaten in the last nine games in which they had only one draw.
But they face a side that has won seven matches against them and lost only once to them, in the 2017 finals.
Egypt have had a rollercoaster campaign so far as they were unbeaten in the qualifying round and topped their group. But they failed to carry that form in the competition.
However, Egypt bounced back and had to fight for their wins against Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau and Ivory Coast.
They had a thrilling game with Morocco in the quarter-finals as they dug deep into the extra time but their star man Salah helped them with a goal and an assist.
