Switzerland vs Cameroon World Cup 2022 Prediction

Switzerland and Cameroon lock horns for the very first time in their history for the opening game in Group G this Thursday. The Europeans head into the game as the firm favourite to win with the bookmakers but Cameroon might adapt to the Qatar heat far better and that will give them the edge as the game plays out.

Cameroon Double Chance

Cameroon head into their opening group game against Switzerland as the underdogs but seeing as these two sides have never played one another before and looking at the expected conditions in Qatar, we fancy The Indomitable Lions to come away with at least a point to show for their efforts and, possibly, all three. Switzerland don't have the best of records against African opponents, winning six, drawing three and losing six of their 15 previous encounters against countries from that continent.

Under 2.5 Goals

We're expecting the game to be tight and tense throughout with little in the way of goalmouth action, so our second prediction is for under 2.5 goals to be scored. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in three of Switzerland's last six matches and in each of Cameroon's last five outings in all competitions with both teams failing to score in three of those fixtures.

Switzerland vs Cameroon is today's early kick-off at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and we're going to take a look at the latest odds to see which way the bookmakers think this game is going to go.

Switzerland odds: 4/5 (1.80)

Draw odds: 13/5 (3.60)

Cameroon odds: 9/2 (5.50)

As you can see, the Swiss are the pretty heavy favourite to win today but in a World Cup that has already thrown up a number of upsets, we still believe that Cameroon have a great chance of taking something from this match.

If you were looking to back the First Goalscorer in this game then the obvious choice with the bookies is Haris Seferovic at 29/5. The 30-year-old striker has netted 25-goals in 89 appearances for Switzerland and has scored at a World Cup before, backing in 2014 against Ecuador. The current odds seem to favour a low-scoring 90-minutes today as you can back Under 2.5 Goals at 4/6, while Over 2.5 Goals is currently priced at 17/12. If you want to back Both Teams to Score you can get odds of around 21/17 but a BTTS – No bet is priced at around the 3/4 mark.

Switzerland vs Cameroon: Battle of the Underdogs in Group G

Switzerland

Switzerland have been able to pick up momentum at just the right stage, as the team has enjoyed wins over the likes of Portugal and Spain in the recent Nations League competition. After having consistently reached the knockout stages, Switzerland have a certain amount of expectations coming into this tournament. A victory in the opening match could prove key for Switzerland's confidence ahead of a tough game against Brazil in the second group game. Since the 1994 World Cup, Switzerland have only failed to reach the knockout stages only once.

Cameroon

Cameroon have not been able to get past the group stages of the World Cup since reaching the quarter-finals of the 1990 edition. The Indomitable Lions will be aware that they have to pick up as many points as possible in the first two group matches before going on to face Brazil in the third and final group game, so we expect Cameroon to play fairly safe, defensive football against the Swiss, looking to capitalise through counter-attacks and set-pieces.

Predicted Starting Lineups

Switzerland: Sommer (GK), Rodriguez, Akanji, Elvedi, Widmer, Xhaka, Freuler, Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas & Embolo

Cameroon: Onana (GK), Tolo, Castelletto, Nkoulou, Fai, Toko Ekambi, Hongla, Anguissa, Mbeumo, Aboubakar & Choupo-Moting
