Switzerland vs Cameroon Match Preview


Switzerland and Cameroon Kick Off the Action in Group G


Switzerland vs Cameroon - 24/11/2022


There are four fixtures to be played in the 2022 World Cup on the 24th of November, including the meeting between Switzerland and Cameroon. This is a match in Group G and the game will take place at the Al Janoub Stadium, Al Wakrah.


Switzerland come into the match having lost 2-0 to Ghana in a friendly game prior to the tournament. It was not ideal preparation for the Swiss, who conceded 2 goals in the final 20 minutes of the match, with both teams making several changes in the second half.


Switzerland have won 3 of their last 4 games, with all 3 wins coming in the UEFA Nations League. Switzerland beat Portugal and Czech Republic at home plus recorded an excellent 2-1 win in Spain.


The 3 wins were not good enough to see Switzerland top the group but they showed what the Swiss can produce on their day.


Switzerland finished top of their World Cup qualifying group, 2 points above European champions Italy. They were undefeated in the group and produced a strong defensive performance, conceding only 2 goals in their 8 qualifying fixtures.


Switzerland scored 2 or more goals in 3 of their final 4 World Cup qualifying matches and kept 6 clean sheets in their last 7 World Cup qualifying games.


Cameroon were held to a 1-1 draw by Panama in their final friendly before the 2022 World Cup. Cameroon opened the scoring shortly after half time by Panama equalised just 7 minutes later and that is how the game finished.


That result means Cameroon have failed to win any of their 4 most recent fixtures, all of which have been friendly matches. They have tasted defeat against Uzbekistan and Korea Republic and were held to a 1-1 draw by Jamaica.


In terms of World Cup qualifying, Cameroon finished top of Group D, 2 points clear of the Ivory Coast having won 5 of their 6 matches. That saw them progress to the third round of qualifying and Cameroon met Algeria in a two legged playoff.


The Indomitable Lions lost the first leg 1-0 at home and it seemed they were going to be eliminated. However, Cameroon won the second leg 1-0 and scored a winner in injury time of extra-time to qualify in dramatic circumstances.


Trends show in Cameroon's last 5 games in all competitions there have been under 2.5 goals scored.


Team news and Switzerland should be at full strength for this game as goalkeeper Yann Sommer has returned from injury. Noah Okafor is pushing for a starting place in attack.


Cameroon will start with experienced striker Vincent Aboubakar in attack. André-Frank Zambo Anguissa is a key man in central midfield.


We expect to see under 2.5 goals in this game and with Switzerland’s strong defensive record, they could keep a clean sheet. With a solid defence, the Swiss have a good base on which to score the goals to win the match.
