Cameroon vs Brazil Betting Preview
Brazil have swept aside Serbia (2-0) and Switzerland (1-0) to book their place in the last-16. Only a point will be needed to confirm their position as Group G winners. Anyway, the five time world champions struggled against the Swiss without Neymar as defensive midfielder Casemiro scored in the 83rd minute to break the deadlock. Few could say Brazil have been at their best so far but a pair of wins without conceding make them the only naton with a 100% winning record and with no goals conceded.
Cameroon have lost to Switzerland in the opening game and then drew 3-3 with Serbia, a thrilling match in which they found themselves 3-1 down. They need to beat Brazil in order to qualify for the last 16 of the World Cup and Serbia to win or draw against Switzerland. The Indomitable Lions will be surely will they may be able to capitalise on playing a Brazil team which may not be as strong as in previous matches.
Brazil and Cameroon have played each other six times, and the Seleçao have won five and lost just one. The most recent direct encounter was an international friendly in 2018, with Brazil coming away 1-0 winners.
Despite playing without Neymar and many other regular starters, Brazil are havy favorites here. The bookies are pricing the Seleçao 21/50 to win (best odds at STS.co.uk). Cameroon are 8/1 with Spreadex to deliver another upset at this World Cup, while the draw is backable at 41/10 with VBet.
Cameroon (4-3-3): Epassy; Fai, Castelletto, Nkoulou, Tolo; Hongla, Anguissa, Kunde; Aboubakar, Choupo-Moting, Toko Ekambi
Cameroon manager Rigobert Song dropped his starting goalkeeper Andre Onana for "disciplinary reasons", meaning that Devis Epassy will start in goal once again. Up front, Vincent Aboubakar can expect to be named in the XI after scoring from the bench in the last outing. Eric Maxime Choupo-Moting and Karl Toko-Ekambi will complete the attacking trio.
Brazil (4-3-3): Alisson; Militao, Marquinhos, Silva, Telles; Casemiro, Guimaraes, Paqueta; Antony, Jesus, Vinicius Jr
Neymar is expected to miss Brazil's third group game. Full-backs Alex Sandro and Danilo are also ruled out, adding to Brazil's woe. Coach Tite is expected to make wholesale changes with the likes of Alex Telles, Eder Militao, Bruno Guimaraes, Gabriel Jesus and Antony featuring from the off. Other key players such as Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Casemiro e Vinicius Jr. will retain their starting berth.
Cameroon v Brazil Predictions
Cameroon have plenty still to play for, while Brazil are already through to the knockout stage and will top the pool unless they lose and Switzerland win with a significant goal swing.
We have already seen France and Spain losing their final group stage game against Tunisia and Japan respectively. Hence, surprises are around the corner in Qatar, and motivation are the key factor.
As a result, we don't believe Brazil will win this clash by a wide margin, and we back "Cameroon +2" in the Handicap betting.
The Correct Score could be a 2-1 Brazil win. A drop in concentration might see Cameroon to score, meaning that the Both Teams To Score bet is a value bet.
Gabriel Jesus is our pick in the anytime goalscorer market, while Nouhou Tolo to be shown a card is another interesting option.
