World Cup Group G Predictions

World Cup Group G soccer predictions are what you will find in this section. Remember to check the odds before placing your bet!

Cameroon vs Serbia – Serbia to win @ 4/5 (1.80)

It’s time for the second round of games in Group G at this year’s World Cup. Cameroon will face Serbia after that unlucky 1:0 loss against Switzerland in the first round. Switzerland and Cameroon were playing at a similar level in that game so Cameroon have all the rights to be unhappy about the outcome. We believe that the clash against Serbia isn’t going to go their way as well.

Serbia were the underdog against Brazil and they unsurprisingly lost. The coach knew that there’s not much he can do and that’s why he didn’t risk Dusan Vlahovic’s health and decided to keep him fresh for this game against Cameroon. We are certain that Serbia’s star will be in the starting XI in this game and that would be a huge boost towards Serbia’s chances to win this game. With Dusan Vlahovic in the starters, Serbia look like a completely different team. Cameroon will be shell-shocked after the game against Serbia as we predict a 1:2 victory for the European team.

Brazil vs Switzerland – Neymar to score @ 19/20 (1.95)

Yes, Neymar couldn’t score a goal against Serbia but it certainly wasn’t for a lack of trying. He had a few good opportunities in the game and came very close to scoring. Sadly, he still has zero goals to his name.

We are certain that in the game against Switzerland we are going to see a motivated Neymar who wants to quickly catch up to the top goal-scorers around as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Kylian Mbappe already scoring a few goals. Neymar was certainly on top of his game with PSG this season. He managed to score 11 goals in Ligue 1 alone. The only player to outscore him in the French top division is his teammate, Kylian Mbappe. The French star scored 12 goals so far. Furthermore, Neymar also scored two goals in the Champions League after some very good games. He was even voted as match MVP in one of those games.

We have yet to see the very best from Neymar at this World Cup. Richarlison stole the show in the game against Serbia by bagging two goals. One of them was a fascinating bicycle kick that was greeted by the fans with a standing ovation. Neymar certainly wants some of that action and we expect him to bring his A-game against Switzerland.

This year, the bookmakers are full thanks to the World Cup. This is how the quotas for these places look this time around.

Among the major bookmakers, we have promising odds on the group's qualifiers to the Round of 16. These are:

Brazil (1.11), Switzerland (2.00), Serbia (2.25) and Cameroon (3.40).

As a team winner, Brazil is a great rival for the rest of the teammates. Thus, it has the first place in the list, with odds of 1.4. In second place is Switzerland with 5.5. Followed by Serbia with 6.5. Finally, and with fewer odds to win, we have Cameroon with 12.00.

It is obvious the difference in levels and winning chances within the group, but that is what will make it more interesting to watch. Anything could happen on those days of the year in Qatar.

It should be noted that fees vary depending on the day, and circumstances. There are also some combination bets that would be good to look at. In games of chance, anything can happen at any time.

Who has won previously?

In order to talk about the teams of the World Cup Group G, we need to revisit some of its histories. At the top of the list is Brazil, winner of 5 World Cups and two runner-up finishes. This fact alone makes World Cup Group G the most promising of all this 2022.

Although the rest of the teams have not won the world championship to date, there is a talent for this year. We are talking about teams that are achieving great feats. But without a doubt, they have it tough with this great rival stealing the limelight.

Brazil, the king of the world

One of the peculiarities of this group is that they have one of the greatest powers in the world. Brazil has not only participated 20 times in the World Cup but has also won it five times. They have also finished runners-up twice. An international hero and powerhouse, Brazil also has 70 titles to his name.

Titles, both international, senior national team and youth titles. This makes it a world record holder. This World Cup Group G member is undoubtedly the biggest rival in this championship. It is the team with the most victories and the most advantages of all kinds.

Players who made a difference

This World Cup Group G member has some really big and important players in it, important figures in the history of Brazilian football, who are undoubtedly icons for today and role models for the rest of the world.

These players would be: Ademir, Bebeto, Cafú, Careca, Carlos Alberto, Cláudio Taffarel, Didi, Djalma, Falcão, Garrincha, Jairzinho, Júnior. As well as Kaká, Pelé, Rivaldo, Rivelino. Roberto Carlos, Romário, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Sócrates, Tostão and Zico.

Pelé, in addition to being considered the greatest footballer of all time and of the 20th century by FIFA, is the top scorer of the “golden scratch” with 77 goals. While Cafú is the player with the most appearances with 142. In terms of the number of World Cup titles, Pelé has three World Cups (1958, 1962 and 1970), making him the only player to have won three World Cups with his national team.

The current World Cup Group G stars for this team are Neymar, Vinícius Junior, Casemiro, Éder Militão, and Emerson, among others. Such players are the terror of the world, as they are expected to deliver impeccable performances.

Its distinctive uniform

Brazil carries its culture and identity on its shoulders, with the colours of its flag being its current uniform. This is how we see their yellow and green jersey, accompanied by their blue shorts.

The typography of the players' names and numbers printed on the new Brazilian national team kits is clearly inspired by pixação, a form of graffiti originating in São Paulo.

The national team's kit is made with Nike Dri-FIT technology, an innovative technology that improves players' performance by helping them stay drier, cooler and lighter. It does this by wicking perspiration away from the body to the outside of the fabric for quick drying.

Serbia

As Yugoslavian players from 1992-2000, before their independence, included footballers of great quality. These were Dragan Stojković, Siniša Mihajlović, Predrag Mijatović, Dejan Savićević or Savo Milošević, among others. After Yugoslavia, the national team changed its name to Serbia and Montenegro in 2003, whose newly named nation competed in the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

World cup Group G

This World Cup Group G team became the independent national team of Serbia in 2006, after separating from Montenegro. Despite this, the Serbian national team is recognised, thanks to a mutual agreement between FIFA and UEFA, as the direct and sole descendant of the Yugoslav national team.

How hard it has been to earn a place

After Montenegro declared its independence, Serbia made its debut as an independent team with a 3-1 victory over the Czech Republic. It has not been easy to have a recognised position because of his young age. But even so, Serbia has stood up and fought to make her team's name stand tall.

And that is how they have gradually earned the respect of the rest of the world. They also have a good record and a very good squad. This now World Cup Group G member was one of the 32 teams that participated in the 2018 World Cup. It was their twelfth World Cup appearance.

Switzerland, not conceding a single goal

this World Cup Group G member reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in 1934, 1938 and 1954. Some of its greatest international achievements include reaching the final of the 1924 Olympic Games.

In addition, in 2006, Switzerland broke the World Cup clean sheet record. They became the only team to finish a World Cup without conceding a goal. They drew 0-0 with France, beat Togo and South Korea 2-0 and drew 0-0 with Ukraine, eventually losing 3-0 on penalties. That streak lasted until 2010 when after their first appearance they conceded a goal in their second match against Chile.

All-star squad

The squad of this World Cup Group G member is second to none. They have young and very skilful players with a bright future ahead of them. Some of them are Denis Zakaria, Remo Freuler, Djibril Sow, and Breel Embolo.

For good goalkeepers, it features the likes of Gregor Kobel, and Yann Sommer (who has the best track record of all). As well as Jonas Omlin and Yvon Mvogo.

Cameroon, the weakest of the World Cup Group G

This World Cup Group G member is one of the most important teams in Africa. It has won the Africa Cup of Nations five times, in 1984, 1988, 2000, 2002 and 2017. They also won the gold medal with the U-23 team at the 2000 Olympic Games. It has qualified eight times for the World Cup and is the African team that has most times attended the World Cup.

The captain is Eric Choupo-Moting and their top scorer has been Samuel Eto'o. He is a former footballer and current president of the Cameroon Football Federation replacing Seidou Mbombo Njoya.

Ahead of the 2022 World Cup

It is one of the best teams in Africa, and its achievements bear this out. Also, many of its players play for the best teams in Europe.

Despite being the least likely in World Cup Group G, it has an advantage over many of the other groups. If they can qualify, they will be able to take on many good teams.

World Cup Group G schedule

For the next World Cup 2022, a number of important matches will be held with the World Cup Group G:

Round 1 of 3 (24 November):

  • Switzerland vs. Cameroon
  • Brazil vs. Serbia

Round 2 of 3 (28 November):

  • Cameroon vs. Serbia
  • Brazil vs. Switzerland

Round 3 of 3 (2 December):

  • Serbia vs. Switzerland
  • Cameroon vs. Brazil

It is believed that the first place in this World Cup Group G will be taken by Brazil. It would not be a surprise at all, given their dazzling winning record. In the second place, it will probably be Switzerland, as they come very well prepared.

The real competition would be more between Serbia and Cameroon, who, while very talented, are on par in each level. Serbia, though, might have the edge.
