Goals on one-sided
Our first prediction for this match is goals on one side. Zimbabwe is unlikely to win this game and for that, Ghana is our favourite team to score in this encounter. The Ghanaians need a point or more to catch up with or displace Zimbabwe at the top. The earlier the Black Stars score in this match the better.
Few goals expected
We don't expect more than two goals in this match in as much as Zimbabwe is the weaker opponent. Zimbabwe should put in a fight to stop the Black Stars from humiliating them. In preview two meetings, the hosts have scored. Home advantage for struggling Zimbabwe should motivate them to score in front of Fans. Ghana is the better side in this match, a scoring prospect notwithstanding.
Ghana Favourites to win
Ghana is the favourite team to win this match. The visitors have scored five goals against Zimbabwe in the previous two meetings while the hosts found the net thrice against the Black Stars. Moreover, Ghana has four goals so far while Zimbabwe has one. The best bet is away victory.

Game Preview: Ghana to Fight for Top Spot
Ghana will fight to occupy the top spot in CAF Group G World Cup qualifiers. The Black Stars and South Africa are the favourites to top the top. Only one point separate Ghana and South Africa. A win for the visitors would mean they go top of the table. A draw could equally earn the visitors the top spot in this group provided they score at least two goals on matchday. In preview meetings with Zimbabwe, Ghana has 1W and 1D. Notably, this will be Ghana's first trip to Zimbabwe for a continent fixture in recent memories. Ghana ranks better on the FIFA list at position 53 while Zimbabwe is position 113. Moreover, while home advantage should favour Zimbabwe to get their first CAF World Cup qualifiers victory, poor defending is the biggest worry for head coach Zdravko Logarusic who averages 0.86 points in 7 games after registering 1W, 3D and 3L since taking over coaching duties.
