Cameroon v Brazil Betting
2014 World Cup - Group A
23rd June - KO: 9pm BST -
The final Group A games of the 2014 World Cup take place on the evening of Monday 23rd June and tournament hosts Brazil are in action against Cameroon. Brazil who start favourites for this match in Brasilia need a win to ensure they qualify for the second round and face a Cameroon side in disarray having lost their first two matches.
Brazil will be hoping to put on quite a show for their passionate home crowd in every game they play during the summer and things will be no different when they come up against Cameroon. The African nation will have their work cut out in trying to keep their hosts at bay and the bookmakers clearly think they face an uphill task as they bid to go past the group stages of a World Cup for the first time since 1990.
Brazil go into the match as long odds on favourites as they look to sign off their Group A campaign in style, while Cameroon will have to cause an almighty upset, although they did upset the odds to beat Brazil at the 2003 Confederations Cup.

Joel Matip - Cameroon are likely to spend much of their World Cup fixture with Brazil on the back foot and how their defence holds up will decide this fixture. Centre back Joel Matip may be young in years but the 22-year-old has proven to be a revelation for his country and for his club side Schalke in the Bundesliga.
Hulk - Brazil have a plethora of quality attacking players amongst their ranks and all eyes will be on Neymar, although Hulk could be the man to get the goals on home soil. Hulk has the ability to provide a finishing touch to Brazil's attacking moves and he could be a key figure against a physical Cameroon side.
