Switzerland vs Cameroon Prediction – FIFA World Cup 2022

Action in the Group G of the ongoing FIFA World Cup will get underway on Thursday when Switzerland and Cameroon face off in Al Wakrah. Both the teams are seen as underdogs of the group along with Serbia. Favourites Brazil are the fourth team and the group and are predicted to go to the knockout stages as the group winners.

The Swiss automatically qualified through UEFA qualifying, but they have typically performed poorly at World Cups. On the other side, Cameroon qualified on away goals after a two-legged play-off with Algeria that ended in a 2-2 aggregate draw.

Swiss will make their eighth appearance at the FIFA World Cup but will be keen to perform better as compared to previous occasions.

Switzerland Team New

Granit Xhaka, Xherdan Shaqiri, Denis Zakaria and Yann Sommer are some of the star figures in the Switzerland squad and they all will be hoping to give their team a positive start in the tournament. Xhaka is coming into this World Cup in tremendous form after some brilliant outings for English Premier League leaders Arsenal. Yann Sommer is coming into this Qatar World Cup following an injury but the team management will be hoping that Borussia Monchengladbach's goalie is back to his best when he defends the goalpost against Cameroon.

Apart from the – Chelsea midfielder Denis Zakaria and Manchester City defender Manuel Akanji will be key figures for Switzerland as the two of them are known for being beasts in their respective roles. Also emerging quickly is Noah Okafor, who can play any of the front three positions and possesses the pace to make it irrelevant who opposes him while he's moving at full speed.

Cameroon Team News

Cameroon are making their comeback to the world stage after missing out on the FIFA World Cup 2018 that was hosted in Russia. The CAF qualifying group that contained Côte d'Ivoire was won by Cameroon. They have, however, performed poorly in their most recent friendly, losing to South Korea and Uzbekistan. They failed to score on both occasions.

Although Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa of Napoli is not at full strength going into the competition, he may still be risked keeping his quality in mind. Vincent Aboubakar and Erik Choupo-Moting will be key figures as well with the latter spearheading an attack that will need to be able to keep up with Switzerland and others going forward in the tournament.

Switzerland vs Cameroon Prediction

Switzerland will go as a favourite in this match against Cameroon. Swiss look like a superior side on paper and with more experienced players in their line-up – they will surely be looking to kick off their campaign on a winning note.
