Senegal v Cameroon on TV: Channel, start time and how to watch online tonight


Senegal will look to make it back-to-back wins to kick off their African Cup of Nations defence when they face Cameroon in a highly-anticipated Group C clash.

The defending champions made the perfect start to this year’s competition as a Lamine Camara brace helped them record a comprehensive 3-0 victory over 10-man Gambia.

Cameroon, meanwhile, endured a disappointing start to their tournament, with the Indomitable Lions failing to win against ten-men Guinea.

Rigobert Song’s side, who won the competition in 2017, now face a tough task as they look to get their first win on the board, with Senegal knowing that another win will all but guarantee their place in the knockout rounds.

Team news

Senegal have no injury concerns following their first game and are expected to name an unchanged starting XI from their tournament opener.

Cameroon, meanwhile, should be boosted by the return of Andre Onana after the Manchester United keeper missed his country’s opening game having arrived late to the tournament. Key striker and captain Vincent Aboubakar remains a doubt having missed out against Guinea due to a thigh injury.
