Enthusiastic about improving on prior World Cup routines, Cameroon sets out once again in Group G, after four humiliating exits from World Cup Group-Stage elimination. Finishing third place in the recently concluded AFCON (Africa Cup of Nations), the squad seems geared towards action in the World tournament.

Butting heads with the Swiss as the first pitched opponents, the West African warriors would look to hurl devastating attacks on the Red Crosses, who boast of an ebullient squad of players brimming with the confidence of a goal-scoring spree in the Nations League and UEFA Euro Championship.

Both squads boast prolific players who have gained European experience, as well as ample playtime. Whereas Switzerland vaunts established names like Yann Sommer, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Granit Xhaka, representing Cameroon would be Andre Onana, Eric Chupo-Moting, Zambo Anguissa, and Karl Toko Ekambi.

For this match, we predict that Cameroon would ride her Swiss counterparts to an indelible level of frustration and the total number of match goals would be strictly greater than two for 2.35 odds.

Enduring a rather brutal patch to the World Cup Group Stage, Serbia's strong attacking squad headed by Aleksandar Mitrovic impressed greatly in the World Cup qualifiers and UEFA Nations League, scoring fourteen goals combined. As prime dark horses at the qualifiers, they have shown incredible resilience in defeating prolific teams, despite the huge odds stacked against them. Regardless of the depth and surgical precision of their attacking squad, the Qualifiers saw the Eagles of Serbia record a single clean sheet.

The Cameroonians on the other hand would be looking to capitalize on the opponent's defensive hiccups seeing as they possess the worst defensive record in the group. With Eric Chupo-Moting capitalizing on his physicality and aerial dominance, the Serbians may have to kiss their chances of opposition goodbye.

For this contest, we predict Cameroon's determination as a team to outplay the Serbian attack. i.e. Cameroon to win or draw against the Serbians. BetKing offers 2.07 odds on 1X

The Brazilians report their presence in the World Cup for the twenty-second time, bulldozing their way through the qualifiers with a virtual average of two goals scored per game. Learning drastic lessons against Belgium in Russia 2018, the FIFA number 1 team hammers away at Cameroon in a game that would see both sides attempt to tear each other apart.

The Cameroonians are aware of the Brazilians' unquenchable goal-whoring appetite and notoriety among the top favorites to wield the trophy hence, they'd devote their time to fortifying their defense, closing off the midfield, and enforcing quick counter-attacks. If they are to go through this match unscathed, then they must be on top of their defensive game.

For this fixture, Brazil's speedy goal conversion ratio would make us predict heavy goal density and that there would be over 2.5 Match goals for 1.75 odds at bet365.

Betking offers odds of 4.60 for Cameroon to qualify from the group. Difficult to dispute because they are the obvious least favorites in Group G to make it out vis-a-vis Switzerland, Serbia, and Brazil, who is heavily tipped to qualify first from the group. However, there is a likelihood for Cameroon to defeat Serbia and Switzerland, making Brazil their only truly formidable counterpart in the group. If Rigobert Song's side stays true to their mettle, Brazil should be the only team posing a headache in the group.

One of the most outstanding squad members of the Cameroonian squad favored by bookmakers to score freely is Captain Vincent Aboubakar who is placed in the 88th position with 250.00 (Betking) odds in the player of the tournament category.

Tipped at 3.00 odds by Betking as Cameroon's potential team top scorer, Vincent Aboubakar has earned 90 caps for Cameroon since his international debut in May 2010. He received the golden boot at AFCON (Africa Cup of Nations) 2021, made the African Cup of Nations Team of the Tournament in 2017 and 2021, and was part of their squads for the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups, as well as the Africa Cup of Nations in 2015, 2017, and 2021. The next on the team's goal-scoring list after Aboubakar is Eric Choupo-Moting (4.00 odds), who has scored 11 goals in 16 appearances for German giants Bayern Munich. Karl Toko Ekambi (6.00 odds) is also among the top 10 likely scorers for Cameroon in this category to spearhead Cameroon's goal numbers in this tournament.

Andre Onana is twenty-sixth on the Golden Glove list. The odds are 354.00 that Onana will be the best goalkeeper of the tournament at Betking. Alison Bekker, Thibaut Courtois, Manuel Neuer, Simon Mignolet, and Hugo Lloris are all ranked above him. At Inter Milan, this 2022/203 season, he has played 7 matches, keeping two clean sheets. The 2018 Best African Goalkeeper would see his territory tested a lot in Qatar, but if he keeps himself together, his chances of winning the Golden Gloves are pretty solid.

The Cameroonian team has a performance history of defying tremendous odds, Unseating Algeria, Côte d'Ivoire, and Nigeria in the qualifiers somewhat tell of the discipline woven into the fabric of this team's lineup. If the Lions weather the group stage, as they did in qualifying for the World Cup, triumph in Group G will be unavoidable. However, a win for Cameroon in the group is given (at Betking) at a nosebleed odds of around 16.50 and 4.40 odds to be among the Top 2 countries to make it into the next round. Therefore, we predict Brazil will win Group G while Cameroon will place second.

Our prediction: Brazil to win Group G, and Cameroon to finish second for 4.40 odds
