Sports Diary, Tuesday 25th June


The AFCON 2019 group stage continues on Tuesday with action from Group F, the Round of 16 in the Womens World Cup winds up and England take on Australia in the Cricket World Cup.

Football: AFCON 2019

There are 2 matches in AFCON 2019 on Tuesday when Group F gets underway with Cameroon’s clash with Guinea-Bissau whilst later in the day Ghana are in action against Benin.

After tournament hosts and outright favourites Egypt and other much fancied sides such as Nigeria, Senegal, Morocco and Algeria began their respective campaigns with victories in their first group matches focus switches to 2 more of African football’s powerhouses.

Defending champions Cameroon are currently 6/10 favourites to beat Guinea-Bissau (5/1) with the draw at 53/20.  These 2 nations were also drawn in the same group in the 2017 finals and Cameroon won that clash 2-1 on their way to lifting the trophy whilst Guinea Bissau headed home after securing just a single point from their 3 matches.

Meanwhile Ghana are currently 15/20 favourites to start with a win against Benin who can be backed at 17/4 with the draw trading at 12/5. Ghana have made a habit of going deep in tournament finals including a run to the semis in 2017 but you have to go back to 1982 for their last AFCON title. The evergreen striker Asamoah Gyan remains part of the Black Stars set up and he is favourite in the anytime goalscorer market at 37/20 and a whole host of betting markets are available here.

More International Football

The Womens World Cup Round of 16 wraps up on Tuesday when Italy take on China and the Netherlands clash with Japan. Italy are currently even money favourites to see off China whilst the Netherlands, who came through their group with a 100% record,  will be a popular choice at 8/10 to win in regulation time and claim a quarter final place at the expense of Japan.

Cricket World Cup

Tuesday’s action in the Cricket World Cup sees England, who have 4 wins and 2 defeats so far, clash with Australia. If England lose this game they could find a potential semi final place under threat from the likes of Pakistan and Bangladesh. England have a cracking record against Australia in recent times and are currently 15/20 favourites to win the game but Australia are in great form right now having won 5 of their 6 matches.  We have a full match betting preview on this link where we fancy Pat Cummins to get amongst the wickets.
