Cameroon look to pull off another monumental upset at the World Cup when they play the favourites Brazil.

Looking to escape Group G after their dramatic comeback against Serbia to secure a draw, the Indomitable Lions must win here, while the Selecao will want another win to retain top spot, as Serbia and Switzerland play in the other game.

“Brazil has 26 great athletes and a great team. Who will play? There’s Fabinho from Liverpool, Ederson from Manchester City, Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus from Arsenal… There’s a lot of competition,” said Tite.

“I try to give them the best conditions to compete at the highest level, but I won’t go into depth to give you an answer. “I have to give the players a chance, prepare everyone. Our goal is for the players to feel valued. It is an opportunity for them to show all their quality.”

Team news

Andre Onana has been suspended by his country after falling out with coach Rigobert Song, with Devis Epassy deputising. Song has an injury doubt over Olivier Ntcham, with Vincent Aboubakar pushing for a start after shining off the bench against Serbia.

The Selecao are without Neymar, Danilo and Alex Sandro through injury. Eder Militao and Alex Telles are the likely replacements at full-back, while Rodrygo could be chosen in a more attack-minded line-up after Fred replaced Neymar in the Switzerland match. Antony, Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli are other options to join Raphinha and Vini Jr, with Lucas Paqueta in line to start again. While extension rotation might hit the attack mostly, with that aforementioned trio an option with Bruno Guimaraes joining Paqueta and Casemiro in midfield.

Predicted line-ups

Cameroon XI: Epassy; Fai, Castelletto, Nkoulou, Tolo; Hongla, Anguissa, Kunde; Aboubakar, Choupo-Moting, Toko Ekambi

Brazil XI: Alisson; Militao, Marquinhos, Silva, Telles; Casemiro, Paqueta; Raphinha, Paqueta, Rodrygo; Vinicius Jr

Odds

Cameroon: 8/1

Draw: 4/1

Brazil: 1/3

Prediction

Brazil could rotate here, but their strength in depth is vast and Cameroon’s need to get a result could force them out and leave the Selecao space to expose and thrive in. The backline’s rotation due to injuries is a slight concern, but the core of Alisson and centre-backs Marquinhos and Thiago Silva, marshalled by Casemiro in front, should enable another clean sheet. Cameroon 0-3 Brazil.
