Today’s Betting Prediction Guinea-Bissau vs Ghana
This is also reflected in the odds. Guinea-Bissau is the absolute outsider in the last game of the group stage. Winning Djurtu bets are rated with odds of up to 8pm. Even a draw seems unlikely for the bookmakers due to the better tournament progress and the individually stronger squad of Ghana. In the game between Guinea-Bissau and Ghana, the tip X brings odds of 4.00. Ghana is the big favorite in the final group F game.
For Guinea-Bissau it is after 2017, the second participation in a final tournament of the African Cup. The country from the west coast won the qualifying group K. However, the last victory of the Djurtus is almost a year ago. In October, Baciro Candé’s team beat Zambia 2-1. At the African Cup, Guinea-Bissau is not going according to plan yet. After two games, the underdog is at a yield of only one counter. Against Cameroon lost the group last with 0: 2. The game against Benin ended with a goalless draw. However, Guinea-Bissau is not all night yet. With a victory over Ghana is not the group victory achievable, but to ascend as a second or as one of the best group third, is absolutely in the range of the possible. In this tournament, coach Baciro Candé had his team play against Cameroon in the offensive 4-3-3 and against Benin in 4-2-3-1. Against Ghana is to expect an offensive system, since the small country needs a victory.
Guinea-Bissau is still following the first goal in this year’s Africa Cup. In qualifying for this continental tournament, the Djurtus were with eight goals the most offensive team of Group K. With four goals Frédéric Mendy was the best scorer of the West African. The center forward is already 30 years old and plays for the Portuguese first division Vitória Setúbal FC. There, however, he fell out half the season due to injury. Nevertheless, Mendy scored three goals and gave three assists. Furthermore, Mama Baldé should be emphasized. The winger moved to Dijon this Monday. In the 18/19 season, the 23-year-old striker scored eight goals for Desportivo Aves in the NOS league. Defensive midfielder Pele from AS Monaco plays in the national team as a playmaker and is the star Guinea Bissau.
The defense of Djurtus is the heart of the team. While goalkeeper Jonas Mendes had to break into the net twice against Cameroon, he was able to keep his white vest against Benin. The best-known player for European football fans in the defensive network is Marcelo Djaló. The 25-year-old center-back returned to Fulham FC after loaning in the winter to join the Londoners in the championship. Guinea-Bissau received seven goals in qualifying for the Africa Cup, as did the other three countries. These modest statistics reinforce the prognosis that Ghana can win this game to zero.
Expected formation of Guinea-Bissau:
➤ Mendes-Candé, Djaló, Soares, Nanú-Mané, Bura-Piqueti, Pelé, Baldé-Mendy (4-2-3-1)

Ghana belongs to the fixed inventory of the Africa Cup. In the past 25 years, you did not qualify for the tournament just once. The Black Stars won the qualification group F with nine points. At the Africa Cup 2019 in Egypt, the team of Kwesi Appiah is still unbeaten, but at the same time also winless. While they played against Benin 2: 2, it was enough against Cameroon for a goalless draw. With a win on Tuesday night, Ghana could even finish Group F first. A defeat against Guinea-Bissau could mean that the Black Stars might even have to leave the competition early as a singer and without singing. Compared to the upcoming opponent, the 2015 finalist has significantly more individual quality in the squad. Tactically, Kwesi Appiah mostly prefers a 4-2-3-1.
The offensive game Ghana is characterized by the two Ayew brothers. The 29-year-old André Ayew currently plays in Swansea City and is the captain and playmaker of his home country. His two-year-younger brother Jordan is currently under contract at Crystal Palace and is the solo head of Ghana. Cross-competition, the 27-year-old center-forward scored twice for the Eagles. Together, the Ayew brothers shot against Benin the only two goals for their home country. Against Cameroon drew Kwesi Appiah Inter Milan’s left-back Kwadwo Asamoah on the wing. However, the 30-year-old player is not known for his goal threat. At the club level, he met for the last time more than five years ago.
The Ghanaian national team’s defense has a lot of quality. Not without reason the Black Stars conceded just one goal in the entire qualification. Goalkeeper Richard Ofori was also able to keep his white-collar against league leaders Cameroon. The 25-year-old goalkeeper has held ten times in ten games for South African first division side Maritzburg United FC ten times this season. First and foremost is Abräumer Thomas Partey. The Atletico Madrid defensive midfielder is the most valuable player in Ghana’s squad. The defending boss of the Black Stars is Hoffenheim’s Kasim Adams. Ghana’s rock-solid defense encourages Guinea-Bissau – Ghana to predict that the favorites will rise to the knockout stages of the Africa Cup with a “zero” victory.
Expected formation of Ghana:
➤ Ofori- Baba, Adams, Mensah, Yiadom-Thomas, Wakaso- Asamoah, A. Ayew, Atsu- J. Ayew (4-2-3-1)
Last matches of Ghana:
⚽️ 29.06.2019 – Cameroon vs. Ghana 0: 0 (Africa Cup)
