CAMEROON and Serbia face off knowing that just one win is enough.

Both nations failed to take a point from their opening Group G game.

And if any of them are aiming to make the last 16, they almost certainly have to win that one.

Switzerland will be there in the other group game against the power hitter Brazil.

So both sides will be desperate for three points on the board from the clash at 40,000-seat Al Janoub.

SunSport takes a look at what to expect from Cameroon vs Serbia… including a result prediction.

Cameroon: The ‘Indomitable Lions’ put in a hard-fought effort but walked away in a 1-0 loss to the Swiss.

Breel Embolo refused to celebrate his winner in the opening Group G game against his native country.

A win against Serbia is crucial if they want to reach the knockout rounds.

Cameroon: Midfielder Olivier Ntcham will miss the game against Serbia through injury.

The Swansea striker has been ruled out of Cameroon’s remaining group games.

Serbia: Coach Dragan Stojkovic admitted that top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic was not quite fit last week.

The manager also revealed that Juventus duo Dusan Vlahovic and Filip Kostic missed the starting line-up for the game against Brazil due to injuries.

He said: “I’m sorry we didn’t have everyone at the top, it’s not a tactical problem, we have a few days to recover and prepare for the crucial games. Hopefully we can count on Kostic.”

While Kostic’s health is still in limbo, Vlahovic will start against Cameroon with Mitrovic at the helm.

Cameroon: Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo was set to start alongside Bayern Munich striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
