Serbia and Switzerland will face off in their final match in Group G on Friday, Dec. 2, at Stadium 974 in Ras Abu Aboud, Qatar.
This showdown is a must-win for the Eagles after securing just one point in their first two matches.
Meanwhile, the Swiss team can advance to the Round of 16 by simply not losing, which would give them a minimum of four points. This is assuming Cameroon fails to defeat Brazil, which is widely expected.
Who will join Brazil as the qualifying representatives out of Group G? Let’s look at current betting odds to determine best bets and make our match prediction.

Serbia vs Switzerland Prediction
Serbia 1-1 Switzerland
Serbia has the advantage on the attack, ranking eighth in the World Cup with 1.5 goals per match. However, Switzerland are ranked as the fourth-best defensive unit, conceding just 0.5 goals per match. This is a recipe for a highly contested match, which could come down to the final whistle.
Aleksandar Mitrović has just one goal this World Cup after securing eight during qualifying. Look for the Serbian strikers, along with Dušan Vlahović, to be heavily involved if the Eagles are to penetrate the Swiss defense.
Dušan Tadić will need to be on top of his game as a distributor after dishing out six assists during World Cup qualifying (just one in the World Cup.)
La Nati are known for their defense, but will likely need to find the scoreboard if they are to keep pace with Serbia. The Swiss team will look to Xherdan Shaqiri to generate goal-scoring chances for Breel Embolo.
A Serbian victory would not surprise me, but I expect a low-scoring draw due to the stout Swiss defense.

WAGER: 2 Units
As mentioned above, I believe Serbia has the firepower to defeat anyone on any given day. However, the Swiss defense is formidable and I expect a low-scoring draw.
This is why I combined the two with this wager, which covers both a 2-1 Serbia victory and a low-scoring draw.
