Cameroon lost against Mexico in their first game whilst Croatia went down in the World Cup’s curtain-raiser against hosts and favourites Brazil and so this one is crucial for the hopes of both sides. We’ve got the latest live betting odds comparison as well as match analysis and top betting tips in our preview so read on for the lowdown.

Whilst both sides lost, Croatia were undoubtedly more impressive in their 3-1 defeat against Brazil. They took the lead and the game was 1-1 until the 71st minute when Neymar scored from the spot after a very soft award in Brazil’s favour that outraged the Croatians.

The underdogs showed a lot of heart and no little skill and with talisman Mario Mandzukic back for this one (he was suspended against Brazil) the Croatians will fancy their chances. The bookies certainly do, with Luka Modric and co priced at odds of just 4/5 and even at a price the wrong side of evens they are well worth a bet.

Cameroon can be backed at juicy odds of 9/2 here but the draw offers slightly more appeal at 11/4. Cameroon went down 1-0 to Mexico and although they created some decent chances they were lucky not to lose by more – Mexico having had two legitimate goals disallowed. All in all our betting tip here is simple – Croatia to win at fine betting odds of 4/5.
