Switzerland and Cameroon are hoping to advance from Group G but in reality, they are the bottom two teams in this group. That is why this game is extremely important for both teams as the eventual winner would increase its chances to advance with three point from this game. Switzerland knows how to do it since they moved past the group stage in Russia four years ago. They are the favorites in this match but it will not be easy to score against Cameroon who know how to hold the ball and defend. Knowing the importance of the game, both teams will get in slowly and will try to hold the ball in the middle of the pitch and will be more focused on protecting their own goal rather on attacking the opponent. Therefore, this game will not see many goals and the best deal is to place a bet on under 2.5 goals.
