Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Five goals have been scored in each of Ghana’s opening two Group H matches and goals are expected on Friday, as Uruguay are likely to abandon the caution approach they have adopted so far in a game they must win to stand any chance of reaching the Last 16.

Luis Suarez To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Luis Suarez can be backed at 7/4 to score anytime against Ghana and a chance should be taken on the former Liverpool man who will be at the centre of attention on Friday. Suarez was Uruguay’s top scorer in their World Cup qualification campaign, scoring eight times.

Ghana vs Uruguay Predictions

  • Ten goals have been scored in Ghana’s opening two Group H matches
  • Uruguay must beat Ghana to have any chance of reaching the Last 16
  • Luis Suarez scored 8 times in Uruguay’s World Cup qualification campaign

Ghana’s day with destiny

Ghana and Uruguay last met at the quarter-final stage of the 2010 World Cup, where Ghana missed a penalty in the last minute of extra-time following a deliberate handball on the goal line by Luis Suarez. Uruguay went on to win on penalties and progressed to the semi-finals at the expense of the Black Stars. 12 years on, Ghana finally get their chance to set the record straight.

Uruguay must abandon cautious approach

Uruguay are yet to score at the 2022 Qatar World Cup and find themselves bottom of Group H having taken one point from their first two matches. Diego Alonso’s side must abandon the cautious approach they have adopted in their first two group games as they now find themselves in must-win territory. Goal difference could play a factor in group H should South Korea beat Portugal, so we can expect a much more positive showing from Uruguay.

Ghana unlikely to sit back

A point could be enough for Ghana to secure qualification in Group H, but they have finally been afforded the opportunity to avenge the 2010 World Cup scandal and the Black Stars are expected to go for broke. Five goals have been scored in each of Ghana’s opening two Group H matches and the Black Stars are expected to adopt a similar gung-ho approach against Uruguay, on Friday.

Suarez a man for the big occasion

Luis Suarez was dropped for Uruguay’s last match against Portugal, a game Uruguay went on to lose 2-0 – Suarez is expected to return to the starting line-up against Ghana, in a match which revolves around the former Liverpool striker. Suarez was Uruguay’s top scorer in their World Cup qualifying campaign, scoring 8 times – only Bolivia’s, Marcelo Morena (10), outscored Suarez in the South American qualification group. Suarez is 7/4 to score anytime on Friday and a chance should be taken on the 35-year-old who has plenty of experience on the big stage.

Both teams to score will be the main selection for Friday’s game, with a 2-1 Uruguay win forming the correct score prediction. Punters can round off a three-pronged attack on Monday’s game, by backing Luis Suarez to score anytime.
