⚽ Portugal National Team

.

Portugal is ranked ninth in the FIFA rankings. The Portuguese are coming off the back of a major disappointment when they were beaten by Spain in the final round of the UEFA Nations League, which prevented them from qualifying for the Final Four.

👟 Portugal's Road to the World Cup

The Portuguese national team came very close to being eliminated in the UEFA Qualifiers. They finished behind Serbia in Group A, having lost to the Serbs at home on the final matchday.

This left them in the European play-offs. Their first match was against Turkey, which ended 3-1. Thanks to this result they advanced to the final, which was played in Porto against North Macedonia.

The Portuguese had no problems in beating Macedonia 2-0 with a brace from Bruno Fernandes to book their ticket to Qatar. However, they left a lot of doubts heading into this tournament.

🔝 Portugal's Best Players

Although Portugal's top players are getting on in years, the national team has a new crop of top players. This explains why their average age is 26.7.

These are the most valuable players in the Portugal national team:

  • Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)
  • Bernardo Silva (Manchester City)
  • Rúben Días (Manchester City)
  • Rafael Leão (AC Milan)
  • João Félix (Atlético de Madrid)

Despite being far from his peak, Cristiano Ronaldo wants to keep adding to his shelf of awards. He is already the team's top scorer, as well as the player with the most appearances.

⚽ Ghana National Team

.

Ghana is ranked 61st in the FIFA rankings, one of the lowest in the entire tournament. They have played 16 matches in 2022 between different competitions and friendlies; they have only 5 wins.

👟 Ghana's Road to the World Cup

Ghana began their road to the World Cup in the second round of the CAF Qualifiers. They topped Group G, however, they were tied on points with South Africa, so they only advanced to the next stage by scoring 1 more goal during the 6 matches played.

Luck was also with them in the third round. In this case, they played a two-legged play-off against Nigeria. It all started in the worst way when the first leg ended 0-0 at home.

The second leg was played 4 days later and ended 1-1. Ghana qualified for the World Cup thanks to the away goal rule. It was undoubtedly the team that had the hardest time getting their ticket to Qatar.

🔝 Ghana's best players

.

Ghana's lack of experience is reflected in the team's average age: 24.9 years. This team has some of its players in Europe's top leagues, such as the Premier League.

These are the most valuable players in the Ghana National team:

  • Thomas Partey (Arsenal)
  • Iñaki Williams (Athletic Bilbao)
  • Tariq Lamptey (Brighton)
  • Mohammed Salisu (Southampton)
  • Kamaldeen Sulemana (Stade Rennais).

André Ayew will overtake Asamoah Gyan as the player with the most appearances in Ghana's World Cup history. He will also be looking to climb the team's all-time goalscoring chart.

📍 First Goal

The "First Goal" market doesn't need much explanation. All you have to do is predict which of the two teams will open the scoring. Or if neither team will be able to do so.

Considering Portugal's attacking power, we see it very likely that a Portuguese will open the scoring. However, the Portuguese defence tends to leave spaces that the Africans could exploit. These are the best odds:

🆚 Portugal vs Ghana History

.

There is only one record that we can review to prepare for this Portugal Ghana prediction. And that is that the two teams only met once, during the group stage of the 2014 World Cup.

This is the record of Portugal 🆚 Ghana:

Tournament: Result:Date:
World Cup2-1 (Portugal)26/06/2014

On that occasion, Ghana presented themselves as a thorn in Portugal's side. This is hardly surprising, as the Africans have performed well against European opponents during the World Cup on several occasions.

💸 Statistics for Portugal Ghana predictions

.

As already mentioned, the Portugal Ghana predictions give the Portuguese as clear favourites. Despite the fact that some of their stars are not having a good season, they are the better team.

Also, let's take a look at 3 facts that might help you understand this match:

  • Portugal have a very positive record against CAF opponents. They have played 21 matches so far with 15 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats. One of them was in the 1986 World Cup when they lost to Morocco.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo will arrive at the World Cup after a very difficult start to the season with Manchester United. In his first 14 games he scored just three goals and provided one assist.
  • The Ghana national team has played 25 matches against UEFA opponents. They have only won on four occasions, however, two of those came at the World Cup: 0-2 against Czech Republic in 2006 and 0-1 against Serbia in 2010.

On the other hand, 2022 has been very difficult for Ghana, who have failed to win most of their matches. For this reason, we think Portugal will win, although it won't be an easy encounter.
