Cameroon vs. Brazil - World Cup: Team news,

Cameroon vs. Brazil: Brazil’s two wins in a row to begin their 2022 World Cup campaign guarantee them a spot in the round of 16.

The tournament favorites have shined in periods and brilliantly denied both Serbia and Switzerland the chance to test Alisson in goal. Tite’s players will go to the last 16 as group winners unless a mini-miracle occurs on Matchday 3.

Cameroon must defy the odds to qualify from Group G. Their Vincent Aboukakar-inspired comeback against Serbia on Matchday 2 saved a point and kept them in the competition, but they would need a lot of things to go their way in the last round of games to advance.

Team Cameroon news

The main team news coming out of Cameroon is about goalie Andre Onana. The Inter goalkeeper has dropped from Rigobert Song’s team ahead of Cameroon’s 3-3 draw with Serbia and will not play again this season.

After scoring and assisting off the bench on Matchday 2, veteran striker Aboubakar has undoubtedly earned a spot in Song’s starting XI for this one.

Cameroon’s probable lineup against. Brazil

Cameroon’s starting lineup (4-3-3) is as follows: Epassy; Fai, Castelletto, N’Koulou, Tolo; Anguissa, Hongla, Kunde; Mbeumo, Aboubakar, and Choupo-Moting.
Bench players include Ngapandouetnbu, Mbekeli, Wooh, Ondoua, Ngamaleu, N’Koudou, Nsame, Toko Ekambi, Bassogog, Gouet, Mbaizo, Ntcham, Ebosse, and Marou.

Brazil team information

Tite will be without Neymar and Danilo for Brazil’s last group game, and the pragmatic manager is expected to make a few changes from the team that defeated Switzerland 1-0 on Matchday 2.

Alex Telles might replace Alex Sandro at left-back, while Fred and Lucas Paqueta are unlikely to start in midfield. Richarlison might be rested up top, with Gabriel Jesus perhaps stepping in, while Rodrygo could make his tournament debut down the right.

Brazil’s expected lineup vs. Cameroon

Alisson; Militao, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Telles; Casemiro; Rodrygo, Guimaraes, Paqueta, Vinicius Jr; Jesus (4-1-4-1)
Ederson, Weverton, Dani Alves, Fabinho, Alex Sandro, Fred, Richarlison, Antony, Raphinha, Everton, Bremer, Pedro, and Martinelli are on the bench.

Score prediction for Cameroon vs. Brazil

Cameroon will come out blazing in need of a win, and Brazil’s superb backline will be tested. On the other hand, an aggressive Cameroon fits the South Americans, who battled to get past the deeper-lying defenses of Serbia and Switzerland in their first two games.

Brazil has a collection of dangerous wingers in transition, and they might have a field day in this one. The pre-tournament favorites may have to weather an early storm, but they should win easily.
