Cameroon vs. Australia Confederations Cup Predictions, Betting tips and Match Preview

Australia takes on Cameroon on Thursday 22nd June 2017 knowing that a defeat would put a semi-final spot beyond their reach if Germany and Chile draw in Kazan.

Australia have plenty of reasons to feel positive as they prepare to face Cameroon in a key Group B encounter at the Confederations Cup.

Australia suffered a 3-2 defeat to world champions Germany in a spirited clash in Sochi on matchday 1.

Australia's commitment to a more attacking style of play, even against international heavyweights, has drawn some criticism but Behich is confident their approach will pay dividends in St Petersburg.

"We finished the match pretty strong. We're disappointed we didn't get a result but we have a lot of positives to take out of it," said the Bursaspor player.

"What we did well, we did in patches. In the 2nd half we pressed Germany a lot higher up and forced them long a lot of the time. In the 1st half we sat back a little bit more, which is not our match.

"We are confident and we will continue to play the football that we have been doing over the last couple of years under the boss.

"We believe in the way we play and the system we play and we approach every match in the same way."

Cameroon's hopes of reaching the knockouts are also looking slim after their 2-0 opening defeat to Copa America holders Chile.

Cameroon have now won only 1 of their last 4 matches and have scored just once in that run, but head coach Hugo Broos was happy with his players' efforts against an undoubtedly superior Chile side.

"We played really well at times, circulating the ball," he said. "It's true that we lacked a little bit of a threat on the Chile goal but apart from that, I'm happy.

"I'm disappointed with the result but not the performance of my players.

"I repeat what I said before the tournament: we have a young team that needs this kind of tournament. This is how you gain experience to become better."
