Portugal v Ghana Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
Portugal and Ghana have nearly identical records in their last five matches across all competitions, with each having three wins and two losses. Both teams also played a recent tune-up match this month prior to the tournament, which they also each won. Let’s now discuss each side in detail.
Portugal v Ghana Prediction – Preview
Portugal are looking to bring home their first ever World Cup, with their only podium finish being a third-placer in 1966. This year, they had to earn their Cup slot via playoffs, beating both Turkey (3-1) and North Macedonia (2-0) in the process. They last saw competitive football in September in the UEFA Nations League, where they missed out on next year’s finals by just a point in second place. A preview of what to expect happened this month when they beat Nigeria 4-0 in an international friendly. Manager Fernando Santos has called up a promising “Seleçāo”, which includes Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and controversial superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. With Ronaldo possibly playing his last World Cup, could this formidable group of men win it all, and hurdle a worthy first assignment in The Black Stars?
Ghana are also on the hunt for their first-ever World Cup, with their best achievement of the tournament being a quarter-final finish in 2010. They booked their slot for Qatar by seeing off Nigeria (1-1) in the Qualifiers, winning on aggregate by an away goal. Since then, The Black Stars have taken part in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (currently W1 D1) and in the Kirin Cup, where they lost 1-4 to Japan in the semi-final before winning on penalties against Chile, 0(3)-0(1), to win Third Place. They’ve also won three friendlies, with the most recent one being against Switzerland, 2-0. For the squad, manager Otto Addo will be overseeing a talented lineup that includes Iñaki Williams, Thomas Partey, Mohammed Kudus, Tariq Lamptey and Mohammed Salisu, to name a few. In a group that also includes South Korea and Uruguay, they will need to hurdle a first challenge in Portugal. Could they do it?
Portugal v Ghana Prediction – Final Thoughts
After Saudi Arabia’s surprise victory over Argentina, Portugal have to be more wary of Ghana, who are more than capable of doing the same. Thus, we can expect a tight match between these two. However, A Seleçao’s deeper selection of player should make the difference, as they see off the scrappy Black Stars in the end. With that, let’s take a look at our prediction.
