Switzerland vs Cameroon Match Info

2022 FIFA World Cup — Group Stage
Switzerland (0-0-0) vs. Cameroon (0-0-0)

The 2022 FIFA World Cup begins in less than a week. One of the first matches of the tournament takes place on Thursday, Nov. 24 between Switzerland and Cameroon.

Switzerland has been eliminated in the Round of 16 in three of the last four World Cups, highlighting the importance of a tournament-opening victory. Meanwhile, Cameron failed to qualify for the 2018 edition of the event, leaving time to tell if an upset win is in the country's books.

Can Switzerland be victorious to kickstart another lengthy tournament run? Or will Cameroon figure out a way to get their first win at the World Cup since 2002?

Switzerland vs Cameroon Prediction & Pick

Switzerland shouldn't have much of a problem with this Group G matchup. Cameroon has struggled on the international stage lately, going 1-1-3 (W-D-L) in their last five matches. Furthermore, Cameroon only has one victory in their last five World Cup appearances, scoring just 10 goals in those 15 games.

Not only does Switzerland have a decent amount of World Cup experience, but the Swiss have also won three of their last four outings. With momentum being important in such a big event, I'm going with Switzerland here.

Final Score Prediction: Switzerland: 2 | Cameroon: 0

Switzerland vs Cameroon Best Bet

Cameroon's World Cup absence is too much to overlook, as is the team's recent play. Switzerland is more battle-tested, actually having recent success to brag about. I don't expect Cameroon to get any offense going here, leading to Switzerland opening the tournament with a victory.

Bet: Switzerland ML (-140)
