In group G, an opportunity is knocking for Switzerland and Cameroon. Behind Brazil, which seems to be headed for the top, qualification is still entirely possible. For their entry into the fray of the World Cup, these two teams must confront one another.
✔ 1×2 Prediction: Switzerland vs Cameroon
This encounter between two teams that are great to watch is very much open. Switzerland is the favourite but beware of the trap set by Cameroon. That said, we see the Europeans having the edge on this one.
✔ Exact Score Prediction: Switzerland vs Cameroon
In this huge 2022 World Cup match, the Swiss are comfortable favourites against a stubborn Cameroonian team, who will have nothing to lose and will surely give it their all. As for the exact score, we predict an even match that sees the Swiss score before and after half-time. Cameroon will make the match competitive, but it won’t be enough to get the result.
Victory for Switzerland
This is the expected scenario and the one we foresee for this encounter. This match looks more even than people seem to think, but the Swiss still have the edge on their opponents, and in the wake of a more-than-successful Euro, Switzerland could claim to be the dark horse of this competition. A score of 2-1 or 1-0 seems most likely to us.
This scenario is possible. Switzerland seems to have more firepower than its opponent, but Cameroon won’t give up, and won’t be beaten down easily. It’s for this reason that we don’t think there is a huge margin in the level of the two teams and that no outcomes can be ruled out. A 1-1 or 2-2 draw is a definite possibility.
Victory for Cameroon
Cameroon wants to go far. For their entry into the fray in the Qatar World Cup, the Cameroonians have a good test ahead of them against the quarter-finalists of last year’s Euro. We foresee a high-quality match from Cameroon, who will likely be on even footing with their opponent. But in the end, that probably won’t be enough. A victory of 0-1 or 1-2 seems rather unlikely.
✔ Half-time/Full-time prediction: Switzerland 1st half; Switzerland 2nd half
We foresee a fairly even match between these two nations. Switzerland might take the lead and force the Africans to dig deep. The Swiss will be in a good position to put away another in the second half to ensure the victory
✔ Scorer Predictions: Switzerland vs Cameroon
An important match on the first day of the 2022 World Cup, this encounter could allow Granit Xhaka to shine, and the same might be said of Ruben Vargas. On the Cameroonian side, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will be the one to watch closely.
✔ Double Chance Scoring predictions: G. Xhaka / E. Choupo-Moting
This match could allow some of the star players to shine. That’s to say, as we suggested above, this could be an opportunity to see Granit Xhaka and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scores. Thus, we offer you this double chance scoring prediction.
📄 Match Analysis: Switzerland – Cameroon
Switzerland continues to surprise. The Swiss left everyone stunned when they finished top of their group in the qualifiers, two points ahead of Italy who, by the way, failed to beat the Swiss in the two-legged play-off. In eight matches, Switzerland hasn’t lost once and has conceded only two goals despite having come up against Italy, Northern Ireland, Bulgaria and Lithuania.
Cameroon has withstood everything thrown at it. In the first round, the Cameroonians came top of their group, two points ahead of Côte d’Ivoire, and significantly ahead of Mozambique and Malawi. In a two-legged match, the teammates of Choupo-Moting knocked Algeria out of the competition by scoring in the last minute of extra time in the second leg, after having lost at home in the first.
The first face-off in history! Switzerland and Cameroon have never before faced each other, not in a World Cup, nor any other match, official or friendly. Thus, the first day of the group stages of the 2022 World Cup will finally give the two countries a chance to get to know one another.
Switzerland is on a good run after the Euro. Knocked out of the Euro in cruel fashion in a penalty shootout against Spain in the quarter-finals, Murat Yakin’s men haven’t lost in an official competition since, having only given away a victory once, in a friendly with England back in March.
Cameroon is looking confident. With only two defeats (and ten victories) in the last fifteen matches, the 5-time winners of the African Cup are a nation that doesn’t give up. They were knocked out of AFCON 2022 in a penalty shootout against Egypt in the semi-finals.
