  • Venue: Al Janoub Stadium (Al Wakrah)

Day Five of the FIFA World Cup kicks off with a potentially intriguing contest as European dark-horses Switzerland takes on Africa´s Cameroon at the Al Janoub Stadium.

Both nations will have hopes of advancing from a likely competitive group that also contains pre-tournament favourites Brazil and a dangerous-looking Serbia and neither will want to go into this matches without having taken something from this opener. 

Switzerland vs Cameroon Betting Tips - BTTS 

Switzerland are priced up as odds on 1.8 to win this fixture, and while they do have plenty of quality, a tight contest seems likely with Cameroon certainly boasting plenty of attacking threat. 

Historically, the Swiss have won only 2 of their last 9 World Cup or European Championship group stage matches, while 7 of those matches actually saw BTTS, including all 3 group stage games at the 2018 WC in Russia.

Cameroon, returning to the world´s biggest stage for the first time since 2014 have endured a miserable last few appearances at this tournament, with the famed indomitable Lions losing each of their last 7 WC matches since a 1:0 win against Saudi Arabia back in 2002. In more recent WC editions in South Africa and Brazil, Cameroon have shipped 14 goals in 6 straight defeats, although 3 of those 6 fixtures did see BTTS. 

Given their respective tournament history, the Swiss are deserved favourites, but Cameroon would appear to be a stronger side than that which competed in previous tournaments, and a share of the spoils with both teams scoring seems like a potentially good shout, particularly considering the Swiss penchant for a draw which has them record stalemates in 5 of their last 9 tournament matches (World Cup and European Championships). 

As such, we´re taking BTTS at generous 2.25 odds (at the time of writing), with the Swiss managing only 1 clean sheet in their 6 most recent matches and in none of their last 9 big tournament matches.
