Switzerland vs Cameroon Preview
World Cup Group G, Thursday, November 24th, 10:00 (UK)
The Swiss impressively went unbeaten through World Cup qualification and in doing so topped their section ahead of European champions Italy. Of course as a result of that the Azzurri, like us will only be interested spectators as Murat Yakin’s side take to the field at the Al Janoub Stadium. After losing the opening three games of their Nations League campaign the Rossocrociati ended it with a flourish. Three successive victories at home to Portugal and the Czech Republic as well as impressively in Spain secured their place in the top tier of the competition. Last week’s warm-up defeat to Ghana would have taken the gloss off that sequence but they will expect to return to winning ways here.
A dramatic winner against Algeria with 124 minutes on the clock secured Cameroon’s ticket to Qatar. The Indomitable Lions will now look to claim a first win in the competition since 2002 losing their last seven fixtures. A third successive tournament of losing all three group games will see Rigobert Song’s side claim an unwanted record. Mexico having lost nine games in a row between 1930 and 1958. Disappointing draws against Panama and Jamaica in their warm-up matches suggests it would not be the biggest surprise to see them return home pointless once again.
Switzerland vs Cameroon Best Bet
Siding with a Switzerland win was tempting especially at surprisingly backable odds.
However, for Murat Yakin’s side to progress in this tournament we should expect that to be built on strong defensive foundations. Two goals conceded in qualifying was an impressive performance and the lowest of any European side. But it was the performance against Spain that caught my eye. Keeping the Spanish to an xG of just 0.46. When chances are thrown up the Swiss have Yann Sommer as one of the best last lines of defence in the tournament. I’m taking them to shut out this Cameroon attack that doesn’t look the most threatening.
- Selection: Switzerland to keep a clean sheet
- Best Odds: 2.10 (Coral)
- Stakes: 7/10
Uruguay vs South Korea Preview
World Cup Group H, Thursday, November 24th, 13:00 (UK)
Twelve months ago Uruguay replaced legendary head coach Oscar Tabarez. Four successive defeats had left their qualification for the World Cup hanging by a thread. Up stepped Diego Alonso and proceeded to deliver four wins on the spin. Resulting in a 3rd place finish behind Brazil and Argentina in CONMEBOL qualifying. A friendly Defeat to Iran in September was their first under Alonso and one of only two goals conceded in his nine-game reign.
This will be the tenth consecutive World Cup finals appearance for South Korea. However, a serious facial injury to star man Son Heung-Min leaves the extent of his involvement questionable. His inclusion in the squad at least allayed fears the Spurs man would miss out altogether. With coach Paulo Bento insisting there was no Plan B without Son. Qualification was comfortable with seven wins and just one defeat from their 10 games. The Taegeuk Warriors famously made it to the semi-finals when co-hosts of the tournament. But performances off of home soil have been less impressive, winning just three out of 27 matches. This looks like another tough assignment.
Uruguay vs South Korea Best Bet
Veterans Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez will still harbour hopes of firing their nation to World Cup glory. However, it is the third striker who I am getting onside with here. Darwin Nunez exploded onto the scene last season scoring 26 goals in 28 league games as well as six UCL strikes. His big money move to Liverpool has seen mixed fortunes with eight goals in 16 appearances, a healthy initial return. Negatives surround an early red card for a headbutt as well as his untidy play. He certainly appears a wild card but one that carries a massive threat in this tournament. The South Koreans look like good opponents for the 6ft 2 inch frontman to get his World Cup scoring tally up and running.
- Selection: Darwin Nunez to score (Void if player does not start)
- Best Odds: 3.40 (bet365)
- Stakes: 6/10
Brazil vs Serbia Preview
World Cup Group G, Thursday, November 24th, 19:00 (UK)
Brazil arrive in Qatar as favourites to lift the World Cup and in doing so add a record-extending sixth win, 20 years since their last. Fourteen wins in an emphatic undefeated 17-game CONMEBOL qualification campaign sees Tite’s side enter the competition in excellent form. The FIFA number 1 ranked team have a formidable lineup and haven’t lost any of their last 15 group games in this tournament. The Selecao’s last defeat at this stage of the competition was to Norway way back in 1998. In fact they have topped their group in round one in every single World Cup since 1982, and last failed to progress past the first round in 1966.
The Serbians will line up at Lusail in equally fine fettle. They too were undefeated in their eight qualification games in a group that included Portugal. The Eagles also recently secured promotion to the top tier of the Nations League. Rattling off four wins and a draw to top their group after an opening-game defeat to Norway. They will have to maintain that high level of performance if they are to progress to the knockout stages of this tournament for the first time as an independent nation.
Brazil vs Serbia Best Bet
It seems a given Brazil’s incredible stable of forward talent will delight and thrill the watching world. Their consistently high-performing attack are sure to be one of the competition’s top scorers.
However, it is the pre-tournament words of Serbia’s Dragan Stojkovic that grabbed my attention. The 57-year-old made his intentions clear when stating “We are keen to play modern, fast, attacking football”. All made very possible by having the prolific pairing of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dusan Vlahovic at his disposal. Aided and abetted by the likes of Dusan Tadic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Mitrovic has scored six goals in his last four matches for Serbia and will be desperate to shake off his ankle injury to feature here. While Vlahovic has six goals in his last seven matches for his country. As a result, the Serbs look set to go toe-to-toe with the favourites in a game that wreaks of goals.
- Selection: Over 2.75 goals (TRACKED BET)
- Best Odds: 1.96 (bet365)
- Stakes: 8/10

WHAT IS A FOOTBALL ACCA?
A football acca is an accumulator bet, a type of bet that consists of several selections across different matches that are combined together into one single bet. An acca usually. consists of at least four selections but many more can be included. There will be odds for the single bet as a whole which is calculated by multiplying the odds of all of the selections. A football acca is one of the most popular ways to bet. This is the case because they can create potentially massive odds for a small stake. Many punters choose to create football accas which is what we have created here. If one of these selections loses then the football acca will lose. This type of bet needs every selection to win in order to succeed.
