Brazil vs. Cameroon: What the statistics show

Brazil has defeated Cameroon five times out of six times (L1), most recently winning 1-0 in a friendly match in November 2018. Brazil has triumphed in both of their previous Fifa World Cup encounters, 3-0 in 1994 and 4-1 in 2014.

Both of Cameroon’s Fifa World Cup debuts—a match against Peru in 1982 and a triumph over Argentina in 1990—came against South American opposition. In their World Cup games overall against such teams, they have won two, drawn two, and lost two, with both losses coming against Brazil.

Brazil has defeated African opponents in all seven of their World Cup games, scoring 20 goals while allowing just two.

In their sixth consecutive appearance at the World Cup, Cameroon will be eliminated from the group stages if they lose; they last advanced to the knockout stages in 1990. They have made seven previous World Cup appearances, but they have never won their final group stage match.

Brazil is the first team to go through their first two games of a tournament without facing a shot on goal since France in 1998. Brazil has yet to face a shot on target at the 2022 World Cup. Argentina in 1998 faced just two shots on goal, the fewest since 1966 for a group stage.

Cameroon kept a clean sheet in three of their first four World Cup games, but in their subsequent 21 games in the competition, they have only managed one. The last time they played, a 3-3 draw with Serbia marked their first-ever three-goal World Cup match.

In their last 17 World Cup group stage games, Brazil is undefeated.

Only once in their last six World Cup games, Brazil’s 2-1 quarterfinal loss to Belgium in 2018, did they fail to keep a clean sheet. Prior to this streak, they had only managed four clean sheets in their previous 16 games.

Vincent Aboubakar of Cameroon made history against Serbia last time out by becoming the first substitute to both score and assist a goal in a World Cup game for an African country. Only 11 minutes after coming off the bench, his goal-related contributions brought Cameroon from 3-1 to 3-3.

Only Kylian Mbappé (23) participated in more open play sequences that resulted in a shot through the first two rounds of group games at the 2022 World Cup than Brazil’s Vincius Jnior. the same time frame,
