Ghana’s World Cup predictions and tips

Ghana has been drawn into one of the most challenging Groups in the World Cup. Some people may argue that it is the most complex group. Currently, Ghana has some players playing locally and abroad and may challenge the knockout stages for the group. We will explore the popular bets highlighted from three of Ghana's most popular betting sites. Let us look at each match and the predictions. 

Portugal vs. Ghana

This is a match every Ghanaian will be watching because the Portuguese team has one of the most prolific footballers of all time- Cristiano Ronaldo. It is arguably the toughest match Ghana will have in the group; therefore, it will be an eye-catching contest.

  • Full-time result: The most likely prediction is a win for Portugal. Portugal has a massive squad with world-class players. This may be the match where Ghana suffers its first loss. 
  • Double Chance: We all know that football is full of upsets. Ghana has added to its squad some of the most talented and hardworking players in the world, with the likes of Inaki Williams from Athletic Bilbao, Tariq Lamptey from Brighton and Hove Albion, Mohammed Kudus from Ajax Amsterdam, and Mohammed Salisu from Southampton. Many could argue that such talent may inflict an upset on Portugal. The likely result of the double chance would be either team winning. 
  • Over/Under: This match will likely have goals. Both teams have enough firepower in attack to win the match. Portugal has a top goal scorer, whereas Ghana has exciting rising stars performing excellently in the European top-flight leagues. The best bet under this category would be Over 2.5. there will be at least three goals in this match. 
  • Both teams to score: Both teams have the quality to score; therefore, the best bet for Ghanaian players would be "Yes." 

South Korea vs. Ghana

This is the second match of the group and will be played on 28th November. This is also a tough match but not as tough as the Portugal one. 

  • Full-time result: The prediction for this category is a win for Ghana. This is the best chance for Ghana to impose itself on the world stage and do more than the 2010 team did to make the country proud and reach the quarterfinals. Ghana has a better all-around squad compared to South Korea. South Korea has the Premier League's top scorer from last season, and he would be the primary threat; however, Ghana would shut him down and scoop a narrow win. 
  • Double Chance: Ghana has assembled a solid team and the worst-case scenario in this match would be a draw. However, players can go safe and go for Ghana to win or draw.
  • Over/Under: This match will have a lot of attacking, and there will be goals. The best prediction is over 2.5 goals in 90 minutes. 
  • Both teams to score: Ghana's defense is a little bit shaky and is seen to be leaking goals against teams with a quality attack. In this match, they may concede a goal; however, they will outscore South Korea and secure the win. 

Uruguay vs. Ghana

Many bookmakers have not featured the final matches of the world cup's group stages on their sites; however, the match is worth mentioning and analyzing because the game will eventually be featured in the betting market, and it will also be played. 

  • Full-time result: This is a massive game for Ghana because they will seek to settle the scores on the defeat suffered in 2010's World Cup quarter final. Uruguay survived elimination and ended up qualifying for the Semis at Ghana's expense, losing a crucial penalty in the dying minutes of extra time. It will be a tight game, and Uruguay is very compact defensively. The team does not have the same quality of players as in 2018, but it can inflict damage on the Ghanaian team. However, with Ghana's improved quality and drive to win against an archrival, the likely result will be a draw. 
  • Double Chance: This game will be very close; therefore, with Ghana having a slight edge, the prediction will be Ghana to win or draw the match. 
  • Over/Under: This game will have very few goals because most South American teams are compact defensively. Therefore, the best bet would be under 2.5. 
  • Both teams to score: This match may not have many goals to offer. Therefore, the prediction for this market is "No."
