Brazil

One of the favourites to win the competition, Brazil is the main team to keep an eye on in Group G.

The famous yellow of Brazil leads the way in the number of World Cup wins, with the South Americans being named World Champions on five occasions. Germany and Italy are just one behind with four, so Seleção will be after that sixth title in Qatar.

Brazil haven’t won the title since 2002 in Japan, only reaching the quarter-finals in Russia in 2018 where they were knocked out by Belgium. In their last major tournament, Brazil were the hosts for the 2021 Copa America, where they were defeated by Argentina in the final.

Veteran manager Tite has been in charge of the Brazil national team since 2016, overseeing that 2018 quarter-final exit along with leading the side to their ninth Copa America title in 2019. Tite leads his Brazil side into the WC finals after they topped the CONMEBOL group and finished the qualifying campaign without a single defeat, in the group which featured the likes of Argentina and Uruguay.

There is a wealth of talent for Tite to choose from, with Neymar set to be the spearhead up front for Brazil. It’s interesting to see who will line up alongside the PSG superstar, with the likes of Manchester United’s Antony, Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli as well as Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr just some of the star-studded cast representing Seleção in Qatar.

There are huge names all over the pitch, from Alisson in goal to Thiago Silva and Marquinhos at the back, and Casemiro and Lucas Paqueta in midfield. With so many high-quality players, it’s no surprise that they are the favourites for the competition with 4/1 odds.

Serbia

Like in 2018, Serbia once again join Brazil and Switzerland in their World Cup group and will be hoping that this time they can make it out of the group stages. Serbia topped their qualifying group – a group which featured Portugal, Ireland, Luxembourg, and Azerbaijan – without being defeated.

Serbia have plenty of firepower that could help them surprise a few in Qatar. Aleksandar Mitrovic has been in brilliant form for Fulham in the Premier League with nine goals in 12 league appearances, which puts him behind only Harry Kane and Erling Haaland in the Golden Boot standings. Dusan Vlahovic is another sharpshooter that can impact a game with his goals. The €81million striker has six goals in ten Serie A appearances for Juventus this season.

Dragan Stojkovic was announced as Serbia boss in 2021, leading his team to Qatar with the incredible 2-1 away win against Portugal in the qualifiers – with Mitrovic claiming a 90th-minute winner. Serbia are 11/2 to keep their electric form going and win group G, and 11/10 to qualify from the group.

Switzerland

Switzerland make up the 2018 group reunion, joining Serbia and Brazil again. Like the other two teams, Switzerland were also unbeaten in their qualifying group – including twice against Italy – as they finished first in the group which also featured Bulgaria, Lithuania, and Northern Ireland.

The Swiss have some recognisable names that could see them do well, such as captain Granit Xhaka who has enjoyed a revitalised season with Arsenal. There is also the likes of Manchester City’s Manuel Akanji and Remo Freuler of Nottingham Forest who are likely to feature for Murat Yakin’s side.

Switzerland managed a draw with Brazil in 2018, which helped see them qualify for the knockout rounds before losing to Sweden in the next round. Their best finish at a World Cup is reaching the quarter-final stage on three occasions, first in 1934 and 1938, then when they hosted 1954 tournament. Yakin’s side are 1/1 to qualify from the 2022 Group G, 5/1 as group winners.

Cameroon

Cameroon are the other team in Group G, looking to cause an upset and qualify for the next round.

The Indomitable Lions booked their place at Qatar in an entertaining fashion, with Karl Toko Ekambi scoring a 124th-minute header to send them through on away goals in the tie against Algeria.

No team from Africa has ever reached further than Cameroon’s quarter-final exit in the 1990 edition in Italy, and Rigobert Song will be hoping his side can challenge that. Song, the former Liverpool, West Ham and Galatasaray defender, has some talent to work with.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has five goals and two assists in the Bundesliga for Bayern Munich this season, and he joins the likes of Lyon’s Toko Ekambi and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, who has had a fantastic season so far at Napoli.

Cameroon are outsiders are 7/2 to qualify from the group, and 16/1 to be Group G winners.
