Cameroon and Serbia will be aiming to get their first points on the board in Group G after a defeat each in matchday one that now sees the two nations head into this game knowing that a loss could send them home.
Cameroon were defeated by Switzerland in the first game as one of their own, Breel Embolo, scored against his home country in a game where Les Lions Indomptables looked at sixes and sevens in the attacking sense. Defensively, they only conceded the one goal and three shots on target too, while also having five of their own. However, Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Choupo-Moting both struggled to get into the game.
Serbia put up a great fight against Brazil for the majority of the game and it was only the excellence of players like Vini Junior and Richarlison that were the difference from what was an otherwise solid defensive display.
On the other hand, despite defending well against the favourites to win the World Cup, Brazil restricted Serbia to no shots on target and only five efforts throughout the entire match. Dusan Vlahovic started on the bench that day and Aleksander Mitrovic also struggled to get into the match from the first whistle.
It’s a game where neither side can afford to lose, but it is also a game that is tough to predict based on the first games ending in losses for Serbia and Cameroon.
