Portugal vs Ghana Prediction

Portugal is going head to head with Ghana on Thursday the 24th November 2022 at 16:00 UK time at Stadium 974 stadium, Ras Abu Aboud city, Qatar. The match is a part of the World Cup, Group H.

The Portuguese National Football team is not what it used to be, their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is 37 years old now and past his best. Their other key striker Helder Postiga is battling injuries. Their opponents Ghana are former quarter finalists in this competition so have a pedigree of getting out of the group stages. Portugal themselves have previously reached 3rd place. Ghana’s Black Stars were the top-ranked team during the FIFA World Cup 2022 group stage qualifiers where they managed to qualify comfortably. So this should be an interesting game to follow.

The Portugal vs Ghana odds will suggest that Ghana is the underdog in this game. The first objective will be to avoid conceding an early goal while hoping that one of their counter attacks will result in a goal.

Portugal Preview

Portugal ranked second during their FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers group stage meaning that, surprisingly, they had to go through the second qualifying stage after they lost the top position in the group. Nevertheless, the “Navigators” as they are nicknamed went through the second stage of the qualifiers smoothly by beating both Turkey and North Macedonia. The key to a Portugal win may come down to one simple thing: What will Cristiano Ronaldo’s form be like on the game day? A number of their squad are aging now, Pepe is back from injury and is 39 years old. Several other key players, including Eder, have shown poor form in recent outings.

A number of the Portuguese squad play domestic football in the UK Premier League, often seen as the most competitive in the world. Examples are Ruben Dias (Manchester City), João Cancelo (Manchester City), Ruben Neves (Wolves), Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United), Bernado SIlva (Manchester City), Christiano Ronaldo (Manchester United), and this means they are regularly playing the best players in the world week in week out, which should help them.

Ghana Preview

Ghana, one of the 5 African representatives at the FIFA World Cup 2022, look prepared for an exciting tournament despite being drawn into an incredibly difficult group, Group H.

Having failed to reach the 2018 World Cup, the Black Stars, led by former international player Otto Addo, now boast an outstanding wealth of young talent. However, there have been a fair amount of challenges along the way as well.

The biggest name in the Ghana squad is Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey, who will take charge of the middle of the field. Partey is in good form heading into the FIFA World Cup 2022.

While not big names worldwide, the brothers Jordan and Andre Ayew are notable leaders of the Ghana national team. Andre wears the captain's armband and is one of the most-capped players at the FIFA World Cup 2022 tournament.

Betting tips Portugal vs Ghana

The logic behind our Portugal vs Ghana betting tips is that we expect a slow and defensive match at the start by both nations in this fixture. Fernando Santos’ side have the talent to play at a more disciplined pace while still creating opportunities to score late in the game. Our Portugal vs Ghana tips include betting on the HT score to be a draw, but Portugal to win it by the final whistle. This will be a lot better value than taking the Portugal vs Ghana betting odds on the outright result alone.
