Cameroon take on Brazil in the final matchday in World Cup Group G. Brazil are already in the last 16 but they are yet to win the group. They lead the group by three points from Switzerland with Cameroon on one point, ahead of Serbia on goal difference Brazil will win the group if avoiding defeat. They could also finish top if losing and Switzerland either fail to bridge the goal difference gap or fail to beat Serbia. Cameroon have to win to have any chance of qualifying. They'd still miss out if Switzerland win and if the Swiss drew, tt'd go down to goal difference.
Cameroon gave themselves a survival chance after coming from leading 1-0 but trailing 3-1 and eventually drawing 3-3 with Serbia in their last Group G game at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They have a tough outing, a must-win clash against Brazil in the final round of matches in the group. This game finds Cameroon third in the group with one point while Brazil have six points and have already confirmed their place in the knockout stage. Cameroon need nothing but a win here to have any chances of advancing. They will blame themselves for a slow reaction after taking the lead against Serbia, who seemed like the easiest for them to beat in this group. Cameroon did lose 1-0 to Switzerland in their opening game and that’s why they come into this game under pressure. The former African champions haven’t won any of their last six matches and have failed to score in two of their last five matches while keeping only one clean sheet in the five matches. Cameroon face a world football powerhouse and the most successful team in the World Cup and while at it the West Africans haven’t managed a win in the last nine World Cup matches; they’ve actually lost eight of the nine, only avoiding defeat in the draw with Serbia. Cameroon have hit the headlines for wrong reasons this week, following the expulsion of goalkeeper Andre Onana but Rigobert Song will want to put this behind them and focus. One player that might help Song in that aspect is Vincent Aboubakar, who came off the bench against Serbia, scored and got an assist.
Brazil come into this game needing just a point to confirm top spot. They have already secured a knockout round ticket following their labored win over Switzerland in the last game. The 1-0 win registered in that game was Brazil’s ninth straight victory and they are now unbeaten in the last 17 matches, with 14 wins in that run. Defensively, Brazil are on top; they have four clean sheets in the last five matches and have scored two or more goals in three of their last four matches. Cameroon is not an opponent that will really worry Brazil; they have a great run against the West African side. Brazil and Cameroon have met five times before this game and in four of those, they have won, only losing once. This will also be the third time the two nations face off at the FIFA World; Brazil have won all the first two. The Samba Boys come into this game with seven wins out of 10 in competitive matches and in World Cup action, they’ve won to nil in five of their last six matches, including the opening two of this year’s competition.
Brazil are enjoying a great run coming into this game; they remain hot favorites to win the World Cup despite not starting very smoothly. This is a game they should dominate and win., given their recent form. Brazil haven’t been conceding a lot of goals, and with eight clean sheets in the last 10 competitive games, tipping them to win without conceding will be a good pick.
