Cameroon and Brazil will lock horns with each other in Group G of the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar this week. The match between the African giants and the South American powerhouse will be held at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail and is scheduled to kick off at 7pm UK time on Friday.

Cameroon

Cameroon are third in Group G at the moment and could still end up in the Round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. The African nation have picked up just a point from two matches, but they are only two points behind second-placed Switzerland. Cameroon will progress to the knockout rounds only if they are able to beat Brazil, and Switzerland do not win. A draw between Serbia and Switzerland – or a Serbian victory – would leave second place being contested on goal difference between Cameroon and one of the European sides.

Rigobert Song’s side kicked off their 2022 Qatar World Cup campaign with a 1-0 defeat to Switzerland at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah. AS Monaco forward Breel Embolo, who was born in Cameroon, scored the only goal of the match just minutes into the second half. Cameroon then played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Serbia at  the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah.

Team News:

Cameroon head coach Rigobert Song may not make a lot of chances to his starting lineup against Brazil. Devis Epassy will stay in goal after Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana decided to go back home due to disagreement with Song. Jean-Charles Castelletto and Nicolas Nkoulou will be two centre-backs, while Bryan Mbeumo, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Karl Toko Ekambi will be the front-three. Vincent Aboubakar could be brought off the bench again.

Brazil

Brazil have won both their Group G matches at the 2022 World Cup finals in Brazil and have booked their place in the Round of 16. A Seleção have one of the strongest teams in the tournament and are one of the favourites to win it. While Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has an ankle injury, the likes of Alisson, Thiago Silva, Casemiro, Raphinha and Vinicius Junior are going strong as ever.

The former world champions kicked off their 2022 Qatar World Cup campaign with a 2-0 win against Serbia at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail. Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison scored both the goals. Brazil then beat Switzerland 1-0 in their second group match at Stadium 974 in Dohan. Manchester United defensive midfielder Casemiro scored the only goal of the match in the 83rd minute.

Team News:

Richarlison has started the opening two matches for Brazil in the group stage of the 2022 Qatar World Cup. The Tottenham Hotspur forward has scored two goals. It is very likely that Brazil head coach Tite will hand Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus a spot in attack and leave Richarlison on the bench. Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes could also come in for Manchester United midfielder Fred in the middle of the park.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Cameroon have scored 3 goals in 2 Qatar World Cup matches.
  • Brazil have scored 3 goals in 2 Qatar World Cup matches.
  • Brazil have not conceded at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
  • Cameroon have conceded 4 goals at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
  • Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison has scored 2 goals for Brazil.

Conclusion

Brazil are likely to make a few changes to the team for the match against Cameroon, but the former world champions are still likely to win. A second-string Brazil team will still have a few world-class players who should be able to get the better of Cameroon in the end.

Prediction: Brazil to win 3-0

Best Odds: 7/1
