Cameroon will come to play
It’s very likely that Cameroon will arrive for their Qatar 2022 dates with the most inexperienced coach. Rigobert Song – installed by Samuel Eto’o after the last coach came third in the African Cup of Nations – has three under-23s and three Cameroon first-team management credits to his name, but he certainly made a quick impact.
In their FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers, Cameroon their group but then had to face Algeria in the decisive knockout round. After the first leg went 1-0 against the Indomitable Lions, Song lambasted the defensive approach of Algeria, saying that his team “were there to play.” His passion clearly revved up the team for the second leg, winning 2-1 away after extra time to make it to their eighth World Cup.
There’s highly-rated talent dotted across the pitch for Cameroon. André Onana in goal recently joined Inter Milan, defensive midfielder André Zambo Anguissa just joined SSC Napoli, and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored nine goals and five assists despite averaging a mere 19 minutes per game for Bayern Munich last season. The size and strength of Choupo-Moting and Vincent Aboubakar can give any defence against the quakes.

Serbia’s stubborn set-up to stifle their foes
Dragan Stojković took a very unconventional route to Serbia’s national seat, managing Nagoya Grampus in Japan and then Guangzhou R&F in China before his country came calling. Since being installed in March 2021, Serbia has sealed some superb results from the boss’ 3-4-2-1 and 3-4-1-2 set-ups.
Quite remarkably, the team that failed to qualify for Euro 2020, losing to Scotland after penalties in the Path C Final, powered to the top of Group A for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification. Going undefeated through eight games and beating Portugal to secure the top spot already proves that Stojković has given Serbia a lot of momentum.
All eyes will be on the Serie A-based spine of the Serbia line-up, with Dušan Vlahović (Juventus) up top, Sergej Milinković-Savić (SS Lazio) in the middle of the park, and Nikola Milenković (ACF Fiorentina) at the back. That said, you never know who Stojkovic will unleash for his strikers, having deployed Aleksandar Mitrović, Luka Jović, and Dušan Tadić in attack several times.
Betting tips and odds on Cameroon vs Serbia in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group G
Cameroon vs Serbia looks to be one of the closest drawn games at this stage of the Qatar World Cup 2022. The oddsmakers put Serbia narrowly ahead for a win at 11/9, while Cameroon is a touch further out at 11/4. A draw is favoured to a win for the African nation at 2/1.
This is to be expected of the two FIFA World Cup 2022 Group G underdogs. However, given that Serbia is at 11/2 to win the group and Cameroon are way back at 12/1, it’s a bit odd that their match is seen as such a close one in the odds. In any case, the total goals line of 2 or 3 is the favourite, so it should be an entertaining game.
