Australia's Socceroos and Cameroon's Indomitable Lions will look to bounce back after a narrow losses in their Confederations Cup openers and earn their first points in the tournament when they meet on Thursday.

Match Preview


Cameroon and Australia meet in St Petersburg for their Confederations Cup Matchday 2 clash as the sides look for their first points in Group B, after suffering narrow losses in their respective first outings last week. 

While we’re surely in for another narrow contest, the reigning Champions of Africa may prove a tough nut to crack for Ange Postecoglou's Socceroos.

The Indomitable Lions haven’t been at their best recently and although they started June with 1-0 win over Morocco, they went on to suffer a 4-0 thrashing to Colombia as well as a 2-0 loss to Chile in Moscow on Sunday. However, we do feel they’ll have more on their rivals here, although their confidence might be dented.

Australia will be a perfect chance to bounce back as they come into the match looking to put losses to Brazil (4-0) and Germany (3-2) now behind them. They’ve been shipping goals recently (eight in their last three games) and this could prove decisive, as Cameroon usually base their success on fine defensive performances.

With that in mind, we’ll go for a No on Both Teams To Score here which does look a great option. We expect just one goal could ultimately untangle this one and decide who will retain slight chances of advancing from the group and, indeed, we’ve seen just one side score in four of Cameroon’s last five outings as well as two of the Socceroos last four. 

A 1-0 correct score prediction wouldn't surprise at value odds with the Indomitable Lions turning the contest their way and earn the points.

Interestingly, this will be the first head-to-head encounter for the sides in recent history.
