WTW Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Cameroon, and Cape Verde Islands - January 17

As things stand, Cameroon are already through to the round of 16. The 2021 AFCON hosts will look to make it three wins in three as they take on Cape Verde Islands. Meanwhile, Ethiopia will be keen on getting some points on the board after a slow start, but

Here's all you need to know ahead of the next installment of matches taking place this Monday.

Four teams in action on Monday, January 17th

Burkina Faso vs Ethiopia: After beating Cape Verde, Burkina Faso simply need to avoid a loss to book their spot in the round of 16 as group A runners up. With Cape Verde facing an uphill battle against Cameroon, the Stallions will look to take advantage and pick up another victory over Ethiopia, who have yet to win a single game at this competition.

Indeed, Ethiopia come into this game having succumbed to a 4-1 mauling at the hands of Cameroon. Despite taking an early lead, it wasn't enough, as they were soon overrun, and now sit bottom of the group. That being said, they may have a slight chance of qualifying - albeit unlikely - should they manage to win here by a decisive margin. 

Cape Verde Islands vs Cameroon: The hosts have already secured passage into the round of 16, but will be looking to cap off a perfect group stage campaign with a win over Cape Verde in their final game at this juncture. The Indomitable Lions had to come from a goal behind on matchday two, as Ethiopia took advantage of some lax defending to snatch an early lead. However, their dominance eventually turned the game on its head, as braces from Karl Toko Ekambi and Vincent Aboubakar were enough to overturn the deficit and secure a spot in the round of 16.

Meanwhile, Cape Verde will be hoping to get back to winning ways after suffering a 1-0 reversal to Burkina Faso on matchday two. The Blue Sharks have been in solid form lately, with just one loss from their last six games, but they'll still have hopes of sneaking into the round of 16 by trying to cause an upset for the hosts.
