Ghana vs Uruguay World Cup 2022 Prediction

The task is simple for Ghana, avoid defeat and there is a high chance they will finish second in Group H and qualify alongside Portugal for the last 16. Even a win might not be enough for Suarez and co to progress any further in Qatar and there is bound to be some tension in this game as the pair last met at the 2010 World Cup where Suarez was sent-off for handling the ball on the goal line only for Ghana to miss the resulting spot-kick.

Both Teams to Score

Ghana haven't been organised in defence but the African side have looked very sharp in the final third and we're backing both teams to score in their game against Uruguay. Both teams scored when these two sides last met and while Uruguay are yet to score in Qatar, the South Americans simply have to play more attacking in what is a must-win game.

Over 2.5 Goals

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of Ghana's last five matches, including both of their opening two games at the 2022 World Cup each of which ended 3-2. Uruguay weren't tested at the back against South Korea but Portugal scored twice against them and we expect Ghana to score on matchday three as well. With Suarez, Cavani and Nunez up-front, surely Uruguay have the talent to breach a leaky Ghana defence.

Previous Meetings

It's been a while since Ghana and Uruguay last met. In fact, it's been twelve years, but their last duel is still ingrained in memories of both nations. Yes, it was the infamous World Cup quarter-final in South Africa in 2010, the game in which we saw more drama than we could ever expect. It was the game in which Luis Suarez conceded a penalty and red card by playing a ball with his hands to prevent a goal that would've taken Ghana to the semi-finals. Asamoah Gyan missed the penalty and later Ghana was eliminated after penalty shootout.

Ghana vs Uruguay: will Ghana get their revenge for 2010?

Ghana

Ghana have got themselves into a great position heading into the final round of group games as a draw against Uruguay would probably be enough to see them progress into the last 16. When you think that Ghana were the lowest-ranked team in the World Cup they have done a great job to be sitting above both South Korea and Uruguay heading into the last group game.

Meanwhile, Ghana has no injury concerns ahead of this crucial game, so we can expect to see their best team against Uruguay.

Ghana Predicted Lineup:

Ati-Zigi – Lamptey, Amartey, Salisu, Mensah – Partey, Samed – Kudus, A. Ayew, J. Ayew – Williams

Uruguay

Uruguay simply haven't shown enough in the final third to suggest that they are good enough to get out of this group which is a surprise considering they have the speed of Nunez and the experience of both Suarez and Cavani to call upon. The defeat to Portugal only highlighted how much Uruguay needed to win that game against South Korea in which the South Americans twice hit the post.

When it comes to team news, Barcelona's Ronald Araujo will likely miss another game due to fitness concerns, but the rest of the team is ready for the match.

Uruguay Predicted Lineup:

Rochet – Gimenez, Godin, Coates – Varela, Valverde, Bentancur, Vecino, Olivera – Nunez, Gomez
