Here are the permutations for Group G in the third and final round of matches.
Brazil – Place in the Round of 16 is already secured but will finish top of the group with a win or a draw. If they lose to Cameroon and Switzerland overcome Serbia, first place will be determined by goal difference.
Switzerland – Will qualify with a win but are out if they lost to Serbia.
