The most exotic event this Sunday will, without a doubt, be the clash between the best South American and African national teams, Chile and Cameroon. The totally opposite style of play and a different approach to the game is something that will certainly provide a spectacle in Moscow.
Chile has high hopes for this tournament, and this generation wants to add another trophy to its list. Cameroon has a plan to leave a good impression since they are awe of difference in the quality between them and the rest of the teams.
The venue of this meeting is Otkrytiye Arena in the capital of Russia, with the capacity of 45000 lucky spectators.
After winning the African Cup of Nations, the Indomitable Lions played 4 games, putting down 2 victories and defeats apiece. They won against African nations, Morocco and Tunisia with the minimal result 1-0. On the other hand, they lost against Guinea and pretty convincingly, against Colombia 0-4. This last game set off the alarm in Cameroon because it was played 5 days ago and it was not the best intro for this competition. That particular meeting exposed many weaknesses of Hugo Bross’ team, and they have little time for removing them.
The biggest star of this selection is Benjamin Moukandjo, a member of French Ligue 1 side Lorient. Mouokandjo scored 13 goals in 25 appearances for the club this season.
After 5 straight games without a defeat in which the Chilean national selection managed to put down 4 victories, it seems that La Roja slowed down a little bit recently.
They played 5 matches in the last 3 months, putting down 2 wins and losses each, along with one draw. What concerns the fans is the fact that they haven’t won in the previous two games. Also, there is an evident lack of discipline in their game. The Chilean players received two red cards in the span of 10 days. Juan Antonio Pizzi has to snap out his players or this trip to Russia is going to finish terribly.
Cameroon vs Chile Head to head
Cameron and Chile met only once in history, and that was 19 years ago back in 1998 at World Cup in France. Both teams were in group B, and that contest ended without a winner 1-1.
Cameroon vs Chile Prediction
The most recent form of both selections isn’t giving us many indications what we might expect from this particular encounter.
They have looked pale, without any creativity and desire to play. Above all, discipline was disastrous for both Cameroon and especially Chile. This might come handy for you who love to play specials. So far there are no odds on red cards in this game, and it could be worth to try this special.
The Chilean side has more experience in matches like this, and they have one star of world football, Alexis Sanchez. He can decide the game with just one move. It is the only reason why we are backing them up to win.
We also believe that this match is not going to see a lot of chances and under 2.5 goals is a realistic outcome.
