Group G: Switzerland vs Cameroon (03:30 p.m IST)
The first of the four games features Switzerland taking on Cameroon in their opening Group G encounter at the Al Janoub Stadium on Thursday. The Swiss are favorites to advance towards the knockout rounds, and for that to happen, they will need a win under their belt. All eyes will be on stars Granit Xhaka from Switzerland and Eric Choupo-Moting from Cameroon. Switzerland was unbeaten in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup.

On the other hand, Cameroon hasn’t been able to go past the group stage in their last five editions. The African nation has its own set of troubles. This will also be their first ever meeting against Switzerland. They are not in the best of forms at the moment and have won only one game from their last five matches. Cameroon will need to stitch together an outstanding performance to topple Switzerland. On paper, given the current matchup, Switzerland looks like a better team. However, Cameroon can take inspiration from Saudi Arabia.
Switzerland Predicted XI: Sommer, Widmer, Schar, Akanji, Rodriguez; Freuler, Xhaka, Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas, Embolo
Cameroon Predicted XI: Onana, Ebosse, Castelletto, N’Koulou, Fai, Ntcham, Anguissa, Gouet; Mbeumo, Aboubakar, Choupo-Moting

Group H: Uruguay vs Korea Republic (06:30 p.m IST)
The second match lined up is between Uruguay and South Korea from Group H at the Education City stadium. 2-time-world champions Uruguay has all the star power in the world to overcome South Korea’s challenge. The likes of Luis Suarez, Edison Cavani, Maxi Gomez, and Darwin Nunez have been in excellent form this year. Uruguay’s defense has also contributed well, conceding just two goals in their last nine games.

With an exciting blend of youth and experience at their disposal, Uruguay is expected to make it to the knockout stages. However, they need to overcome South Korea’s challenge first. The team is missing its star forward, Heung-Min Son, who got injured in the Champions League. The team’s defense has stepped up, conceding just 3 goals in their last 10 AFC playoff qualifiers. South Korea has shown some spark but has been inconsistent. This makes Uruguay the firm favourite going into the contest.
Uruguay Predicted XI: Rochet; Varela, Godin, Gimenez, Olivera; Bentancur, Vecino, Valverde; De Arrascaeta, L Suarez, Nunez
Korea Republic Playing XI: Kim Seung-gyu; Kim Moon-hwan, Kim Young-gwon, Kim Min-jae, Kim Jin-su; Jung Woo-Young, Hwang In-beom, Lee Jae-sung; Hwang Hee-chan, Son Heung-min, Hwang Ui-jo

Group H: Portugal vs Ghana (09:30 p.m IST)
The 15th match of the World Cup features Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal taking on Ghana. The match will take place at Doha’s 974 Stadium on Thursday. Ronaldo will for the umpteenth time be the centre of attraction, more so after his Manchester United contract termination. CR7 has ensured that his personal relationship with United will not have any effect on the team’s performance. Portugal has exceptional talent at its disposal.

Bruno Fernandes, Joao Felix, Rafael Leao, and Bernardo Silva will all play significant roles. With the defensive trio of Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, and the resurgent Diogo Dalot, this team is loaded with talent. The inclusion of Ruben Neves, Otavio, and Joao Palhinha in midfield demonstrates Fernando Santos’ incredible squad depth.
The 2016 Euro Champions are expected to have a comfortable opener against Ghana. For Ghana, it’s a return to the World Cup stage after a 4-year exile. If they manage to make it to the knockout stages, that would be a massive achievement for the Black Stars. For Portugal, given the talent they have, anything less than a quarterfinal spot will be a disappointment.
Portugal Predicted XI: Costa; Cancelo, Pepe, Dias, Guerreiro; Neves, Carvalho, Fernandes; B. Silva, Ronaldo, Leao
Ghana Playing XI: Ati Zigi; Lamptey, Amartey, Djiku, Baba; Partey, Abdul Samed; Sulemana, Kudus, J. Ayew; Williams

Group G: Brazil vs Serbia (12:30 AM IST)
The last match of the day is a Group G fixture at the Lusail Stadium on Thursday. Brazil, considered one of the favorites to win the title, has been in red-hot form coming into the tournament. The Selecao has won 14 of their last 17 matches and drawn just three. All eyes will once again be on Neymar, but one cannot take their eyes off Vinicius Junior. Tite’s men are ranked No. 1 in FIFA and have rarely struggled in qualifying from the group stage. Brazil outclassed Tunisia 5-1 in their last match and has sent a stern warning to all the teams in the competition.

Their maiden challenge in the FIFA World Cup comes against Serbia. The Eagles, ranked 25th in the world, have impressed everyone with their heroics in UEFA qualifying. The team boasts some excellent players like Aleksandar Mitrovic, Luka Jovic, and Dusan Vlahovic. Resilience will be Serbia’s key to securing a draw, which should be a massive result for them.
Brazil has faced Serbia twice and has emerged victorious on both occasions. Unless Serbia performs out of their skin, it is unlikely that the record will change on Thursday.
Brazil Predicted XI: Alisson; Danilo, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Sandro; Casemiro, Paqueta; Raphinha, Neymar, Vinicius Jr; Richarlison
Serbia Predicted XI: V. Milinkovic-Savic; Milenkovic, S. Mitrovic, Pavlovic; Zivkovic, Gudelj, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic; Tadic; Vlahovic, Jovic
