It’s a potential winner takes all between Serbia and Switzerland in Group G with Brazil expected to beat Cameroon and allow for one of these sides to head into the knockout stages with a victory at Stadium 974.
As of now, it is Switzerland who will be heading through to the knockout stages after beating Cameroon 1-0 in the opening game of Group G, before a 1-0 loss to Brazil. It puts Granit Xhaka and co. on three points and with a superior goals difference over Serbia and Cameroon. Now, if they avoid defeat against Serbia while also seeing Brazil avoid defeat against Cameroon, Switzerland will head through.
What’s more, they can also top the group if they see Brazil lose and them win, but a goals difference margin of four goals will need to be overturned.
As for Serbia, following on from dropping points from leading three times in the game against Cameroon, they will need to win here in order to head through and hope of turning over a goals difference deficit of three goals. What’s more, they must also hope that Cameroon do not beat Brazil by a better margin than they beat Switzerland, otherwise it will be the African giants who see knockout football.
