To close the first round of the tournament, one of Africa’s best teams, who must win to qualify, challenges one of the main favourites for the World Cup title.
📄 Analysis Cameroon vs Brazil
A third confrontation in the World Cup. Brazil and Cameroon have already met twice in the final phase of a World Cup. In 1994, the Seleçao won 2-0, and at home in 2014, the Brazilians dominated their opponent (4-1).
Cameroon are gaining confidence. With only two defeats in their last 15 games (and ten wins), the five-time African Cup winners are a nation with resources. They were knocked out of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations on penalties by Egypt in the semi-finals.
After a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Switzerland in their first game and a 3-3 draw with Serbia, Cameroon must now beat Brazil in their final game to keep their dream of progressing to the round of 16 alive.
Brazil are on a 17-game unbeaten streak. The last time the South American side lost was in the Copa America final against Argentina in July 2021 (1-0). Since then, they have been very solid with 12 wins and 5 draws, winning an Olympic title during that period, their second in a row.
After their victories against Serbia (2-0) and Switzerland (1-0), Brazil are already qualified for the Round of 16. Without Neymar, who is injured until at least the knockout stage, the Seleçao will be tempted to rotate against Cameroon.
✔ Correct score prediction Cameroon vs Brazil
It is a game that promises to be animated between Cameroon and Brazil. With the qualification acquired before the match, the Seleçao will rest some of their key players in order to prepare for the second part of the competition. In any case, we expect a tight game.
This is the least likely scenario. Cameroon will not be favourites in any case, but it is still a World Cup match. No team is there by chance and therefore everything is possible. A win by a goal would be a great performance. Especially since Cameroon must win to qualify.
This scenario is possible. Brazil will certainly not use their best team, already qualified before the game, which could allow a good Cameroonian team to make a positive result. We expect goals.
This is the most likely option. Brazil are one of the favourites in this competition and if they are at their collective level, it should be a win, even if they make some changes for this last game.
✔ Half-time/Full-time : Draw – 1st half : Brazil – 2nd half
This match promises to be undecided and should not be decided by much. At first, the Seleçao could come up against a tightly-packed Cameroonian defence, then, with patience, the Brazilians might be able to score to win.
✔ Goalscorer prediction Cameroon Brazil
This match will feature two teams with a strong squad. There are plenty of attacking options, especially on the Brazilian side, where Gabriel Jesus and Pedro could be well-placed to score. For the Cameroonians, Vincent Aboubakar remains in a good position to find the net.
✔ Double chance goalscorer prediction: V. Aboubakar / Gabriel Jesus
As mentioned above, Vincent Aboubakar and Gabriel Jesus are great finishers and if both players play in this match, they have a good chance of getting their names on the scoresheet in this final group game.
