Switzerland vs. Cameroon: Early World Cup Odds, Predictions And Head-to-Head Record

Switzerland kick-starts its 2022 Qatar World Cup journey with a clash with Cameroon on November 24. The Swiss have made it through the group stage at the last two World Cup tournaments and look the team to pick against Cameroon.

The indomitable Lions failed to qualify four years ago and suffered 5 consecutive exits since their stand-out quarter-final appearance in 1990. 

Having lost all 6 games in 2o10 and 2014 – only scoring 3 goals – we’re backing the Swiss at -120 to vanquish Cameroon in their opener. 

Check here for the full rundown on the World Cup betting odds, the two teams’ head-to-head record and where and what time the match is on locally.

Switzerland’s Group G almost mirrors that of their 2018 Russia World Cup group – with Serbia and Brazil both in it again.

Switzerland picked up a win and shared the spoils with Costa Rica and Brazil to progress back in 2018. In Russia, they upset France in a penalty shoot-out before losing out to Spain on spot-kicks in the quarter-finals.

The Swiss topped their World Cup qualifying group – pipping Euro 2020 winners Italy to the top spot.

Murat Takin’s Swiss outfit have had a shaky start to this year’s fixture list, finishing their Nations League campaign off with a trio of wins against Portugal, Spain and Czech Republic.

Former Liverpool frontman Xherdan Shaqiri remains the nation’s catalyst, while Haris Seferovic and Breel Embolo are two lethal hitmen up front.

However, the Swiss boil a lot of their success down to having a rock-solid backline – with shot-stopper Yann Sommer and defenders with 100 caps such as Ricardo Rodriguez and Newcastle’s Fabian Schar boasting great experience.

Arsenal’s midfielder Granit Xhaka also aids in protecting the rearguard and Swizterland to be winning in both halves at +200 is a sensible bet.

Cameroon was the first-ever team to reach the quarter-finals of a World Cup, before losing to the highly-rated England in extra time. 

However, Cameroon and the best efforts from talisman Samuel Eto’o only won the African nation 15 matches at the final tournaments. 

Our Prediction

The outfit seems to perform much better on home soil, lifting the African Cup of Nations in 2017 and finishing third this year. 

Rigobert Song’s Cameroon shows plenty of spirit on the road to Qatar, putting the Ivory Coast to the sword in their final group stage to leapfrog Les Elephants. 

In terms of quality, though, Cameroon might be group-stage cannon fodder, especially with regard to their strength in depth. 

Bayern Munich’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and former Porto forward Vincent Aboubakar are capable front men while ex-Fulham Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa is a decent holding midfielder. 

However, the final 26-man squad lacks experience and their competition in Qatar is top-class in comparison. 

With nothing to lose this could cause a turn in the tide in the opener but SinkorSwimSports predicts a convincing 2-0 win at +700.
