The last game of group G brings the already qualified Brazil versus Cameroon, who still has potential if they win tonight, but only if there’s a draw between Serbian and Switzerland. This is very unlikely to happen, considering that Brazil is playing as everyone expected.
There aren’t too many comments from the Brazilian coach for this game because he might rest some players to prevent injury. They are struggling with players getting injured because everyone is trying to beat them. Let’s check out our FIFA World Cup Betting analysis, odds, and a prediction for Cameroon vs Brazil.
2022 FIFA World Cup Betting Analysis: Cameroon vs Brazil Group G Matchup
Team News and Form
The biggest news for the Brazilian side is that Neymar will be out for this game, and they will try to resolve his injury. They had a hard match against Serbia where Neymar was the primary person to foul.
They are also without Danilo and Alex Sandro because of injuries. On the other side, only Onana won’t be playing, which was a coach’s decision. Their players look ready to attack Brazil or anyone that comes their way.
Cameroon vs Brazil Lineups
Cameroon will start with the same team that beat Serbia, which includes Epassy in the goal and Fai, Castelletto, N’koulou, and Tolo next to the goalkeeper. Hongla, Anguissa, and Kunde are in the middle, and Mbeumo, Choupo-Moting, and Toko Ekambi are in attack.
Brazil will probably rest a few players from the starting 11 except Alisson in the goal, Silva, Marquinhos, and Militao in defense. Someone will replace Alex Sandro because of the injury, and Fred, Casemiro, and Paqueta will be in the middle. Raphina, Vinicius, and Richarlison are in forward, but Richarlison might skip this one.
Brazil is definitely going to the next stage with six points and on top of the table for group G. Just behind them is Switzerland with three points which means that they need to beat Serbia in order to reach Brazil, but even then, they won’t be in the first place.
Serbia and Cameroon will fight for that second place; Serbia needs to win against Switzerland, and Cameroon needs to win against Brazil. Both games are very valuable for these teams considering that both are underdogs that could beat some stronger teams.
Cameroon vs Brazil Predictions
Even if Brazil won’t have Neymar and rest a couple more players, there’s no doubt that they are the favorites. But, anything can be expected from Cameroon, like three goals against Serbia, who managed to beat Portugal twice. Because Cameroon will try to win, you can expect a lot of goals.
Brazil will attack from counterattacks which usually results in a goal. So, If Brazil scores an early goal, we can see more than six goals in this match; if they start defensive, they might finish without goals. Everything is on the Brazilian coach and if he is going to rest a few players for the upcoming matches.
