Cameroon vs Egypt Betting Tips

(Thursday, 19:00)

Cameroon to Win - BET NOW

 

Cameroon have made the most of being tournament hosts at this year's Africa Cup of Nations and only Egypt stand between them and a place in the final.

They have compensated for their defensive issues with excellent attacking prowess through captain Vincent Aboubakar and Karl Toko Ekambi and have netted at least twice in four of their five matches at the tournament.

Egypt, meanwhile, were taken to penalties by Ivory Coast in the competition's last 16 before requiring a 100th-minute winner to see off Morocco in the quarter-finals.

Fatigue could therefore play a part in this one and although Egypt's key to success has been their defensive resolve, they are hindered by the likely absences of goalkeepers Mohamed El Shenawy and Mohamed Abou Gabal.

That leaves them short of quality between the sticks and does not bode well for them when up against Aboubakar and Toko Ekambi, who have struck 11 times between them at this year's AFCON.

Real Sociedad vs Real Betis Betting Tips

(Thursday, 19:00)

Real Sociedad to Win - BET NOW

 

The quarter-finals of this season's Copa del Rey has thrown up a fascinating fixture as Basque side Real Sociedad face Real Betis of Andalusia.

And while Betis have been firing on all fronts recently, they could have their work cut out at the Anoeta, where Sociedad beat Atletico Madrid in the previous round of the cup competition.

That match formed part of a five-game unbeaten run for the Basque side and they are worth chancing to win this one and progress to the last four.

Despite Betis's good run of form, they are without the likes of German Pezzella, Guido Rodriguez, Diego Lainez and Andres Guardado, who are all on international duty, while Martin Montoya, Cristian Tello and Claudio Bravo have all been sidelined recently.

That could tip the game in favour of Imanol Alguacil's men.

Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid Betting Tips

(Thursday, 20:30)

Real Madrid to Win - BET NOW

 

Four of Real Madrid's five wins in January came in cup competitions and they can carry that form into February by beating Athletic Bilbao in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey.

Madrid beat Bilbao 2-0 as recently as last month in the final of the Spanish Supercup at the King Fahd International Stadium in Saudi Arabia.

Either side of that victory, they also recorded wins over Barcelona in the same competition and Elche in the last 16 of the Copa del Rey.

Los Blancos have now lost only one of their last 22 matches in all competitions, with the La Liga title well in reach.

As for Bilbao, they are locked in the mid-table positions with a tally of ten league draws suggesting they have struggled to kill games off and they are worth opposing on this occasion.
