The 13th match of the FIFA World Cup 2022 has Switzerland and Cameroon facing each other at the opening game of Group G. Switzerland definitively enters this world cup as somewhere between the underdogs and the dark horse. It probably began with last year’s Euro 2020 when they knocked the reigning world champion, France out of the competition.

As for the FIFA tournaments, the Nats has been one of the old participants having first appeared in the franchise in 1934; the second-ever edition.

Including Qatar, Switzerland has appeared in the FIFA World Cups 12 times and their best-ever finish was in the 1954 edition of the competition where they reached the last eight. In recent events, however, the Schweizer Nati hasn’t been able to make it past the round of 16.

Cameroon, on the other hand, is the best African team in the world cup tournaments in terms of appearances. They have made it to the finals eight times, more than any of their continental competitors. The Indomitable Lions however have only made it past the group stage once in 1990; that edition saw them reaching the quarterfinal of the competition, the first African team to do so.

Cameroon since the 2010 World Cup has had one absence in the tournament; they failed to qualify in the Russian edition. So the African side this time will be looking to achieve more than just a group stage.

Meanwhile, let’s explore the maths and stats to see clearer whether Cameroon can subdue Switzerland or not including how good of a chance the Schweiz has to take the points away from their African foe.

Switzerland vs Cameroon Forms And Strengths

The Swiss are heading into Qatar with a fresh loss against Ghana in a friendly match that took place just a couple of days before the kickoff in Qatar. They however had an impressive run in the world cup qualifiers of European territory.

Switzerland topped the group ahead of none other than the four-time FIFA World Cup champion and this competition’s biggest absentee, Italy. The Swiss were also one of the few group toppers from the European qualification that didn’t face any losses. They won five of their eight outings with three draws netting 15 goals.

Switzerland’s records in the last ten matches, however, has been a 50-50 scenario; they lost half of all these clashes and managed to win four. Worth noting nonetheless is Switzerland also was competent enough in the nations league to flatten world cup heavyweights, Portugal and Spain in addition to a 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic.

Their ensuing opponent, Cameroon in their respective qualifiers group finished first ahead of Ivory Coast. In the CAF World Cup qualification, Cameroon during the points-based competition won five of their six matches losing only one.

They scored a total of 12 goals in all those outings and conceded only three. In the playoffs or the final step for the African teams to enter the main event in Qatar, Cameroon beat Algeria via an away goal advantage with an aggregate score of 2-2 (leg 1, Cameroon 0-1 Algeria, leg 2, Algeria 1-2 Cameroon).
