Switzerland take on the visitors Cameroon in the round 1 match of group stage of FIFA World Cup 2022. The match will be played on Thursday, November 24th at Al Janoub Stadium (Al Wakrah).
Switzerland keep their level after the change of coach. The "Neutrals" still have to be grateful to Vladimir Petkovich. Under him, a promising team became a regular in the final tournaments, and even took a stable pass to the playoffs there. The specialist left after the Euro, finally getting the "scalp" of France - the world champion was knocked out in 1/8. His successor, Murat Yakin, wisely decided to change things to a minimum. He started by winning the selection in his group, for which, by the way, it was necessary to stop Italy, the freshly minted Euro winner, twice. And then, having lost the first 3 matches in the League of Nations, the team could add, and as a result, having won against all opponents in turn, they retained their “registration” in Division A. But at the World Championships, there will be practically no such opportunity to work on mistakes.

Cameroon returns to World Cup. "Indomitable Lions" in general can be considered regulars of such tournaments. Starting with the legendary team of Mill and Nepomniachtchi, who made a splash by reaching the quarterfinals in 1990, there was only 1 missed World Cup, in 2006. But it was not possible to break into Russia, more precisely, they limited themselves to the 2017 Confederations Cup, and did not qualify for the main tournament. Now, under the leadership of their legend, Rigobert Song, the Cameroonians have returned to the main competition of the 4th anniversary, passing Algeria in the playoffs (exchanged away victories, but the Lions in extra time scored 2-1 away after 0-1 at home). And before that there was a "bronze" at the CAN. Clearly, they are looking forward to more success.
Switzerland have started to play more or less regularly in the world championships only recently. So it is not surprising that these teams have never crossed paths with each other. Switzerland is considered by bookmakers as a clear favorite in this pair. But it is unlikely that they will show a bright game, "neutrals" are good when they play "second number". We bet on "total under 2.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
