It can be said that Russia lost just once in their last eight matches. However, they’ve only won two games in that eight-game stretch. The reality is, Valeriy Karpin’s men have been involved in a lot of stalemates, as five of their last seven matches ended in draws.
Similarly, the spoils were shared in five of Cameroon’s last 11 matches in all competitions. Given that the most recent encounter between these teams ended in a draw, we believe that these teams will be level after 90 minutes.
Both teams to get on the scoresheet
For our second Russia vs Cameroon prediction, let’s take a look at the BTTS market. We would like to point out that Russia have scored and conceded goals regularly in recent weeks. While they found the back of the net in all of their last five games, Valeriy Karpin’s side kept just one clean sheet in that five-game stretch.
Likewise, Cameroon scored seven goals in their last five matches; they saw their defense breached in three of those games. Both teams got on the scoresheet in four of Russia’s last five matches, three of Cameroon’s last four games too. On that note, we should expect goals at both ends.
A low-scoring affair
Although we expect both teams to find the back of the net today, we don’t think they’ll score up to three goals between them. It may interest you to know that the most recent clash between these teams ended in a goalless draw. That said, most of Russia’s recent matches have been on the low-scoring side; as six of their last seven matches featured less than three goals. Keeping in mind that 10 of Cameroon’s last 14 games went below the 2.5 goal line, this will likely be a low-scoring game.
Russia vs Cameroon match preview, analysis, and latest team news
Russia have struggled to find their best form in recent weeks; they managed one win in their last seven matches, with five draws and a loss. Valeriy Karpin will hope to steer his team back to winning ways as they face Cameroon on Thursday.
On the other hand, Cameroon have had some mixed results in recent months; they have two wins, two draws and two losses in their last six matches. As Rigobert Song’s men make the trip to the VTB Arena, it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll match-up against Russia.
Russia vs Cameroon head to head
This will be the third encounter between these teams in the last 30 years. Interestingly, Cameroon have no wins in those clashes, with a draw and a loss. The last time these teams squared off against each other was in August 2011.
