While seasoned veterans at major tournaments, the Swiss enjoyed something of a major breakthrough at Euro 2020. A penalty shootout win over France saw them reach the knockout stages for the first time since 1938 and key players are performing at a very high level.
Cameroon, meanwhile, could not secure the AFCON title on home soil earlier this year and have injury concerns, namely to Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.
As talented as the Indomitable Lions are in goal and in midfield, questions over their firepower remain.
