Two of Africa’s soccer heavyweights of African football square off on Thursday evening with South Africa playing host to Ghana in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Soccer City in Johannesburg.
The two nations sit joint-top of Group C, having garnered nine points apiece from their four games thus far. Ghana hold the aces though having secured a 2-0 home win back in November 2019.
This return leg promises to be an interesting clash and we will explore Gbets South Africa and MyBet Ghana’s prices for our betting tips here.
South Africa appear to be turning the corner after picking up three straight wins in their group to move level with Ghana at the top of the group after losing the opener to them. Two of these wins were back-to-back wins over Sao Tome and Principe, including a 4-2 away win in their last game.
Prior to this run they were on a slippery slope of sorts with just two wins in eight matches, and five losses in that mix.
Defence still remains a major issue for Ntseki though as they have only kept a couple of clean sheets in their last 10 matches across all competitions.
Ghana come into this match sitting top of the table but they will be disappointed they did not expand their cushion at the top as they suffered a bitter 1-0 loss away to Sudan in their very last group match which spoiled their hitherto 100% record start to this competition.
They will be confident after winning 2-0 in Ghana and are unbeaten in their last 5 H2H clashes against the hosts, picking up two wins and three draws.
The Black Stars will however be without a number of their star players who have been ruled out of ths match owing to strict COVID protocols.
A lot is riding on this game for both teams. Sudan won their match away at Sao Tome and Principe to join them in a three way tie at the top albeit having played a game more. All the pressure is on South Africa to pay Ghana back with their pound of flesh having lost to them in the first round of matches. We expect them to take the attacking initiative here especially with Ghana missing so many of their key players and we expect them to break the ice in what is likely to be a rather cagey encounter. Gbets South Africa Welcome Bonus have priced this option of South Africa to score first @ 1.84 and we are going with it for the first tip.
Bafana Bafana also have some of their players plying their trade in Europe missing but not quite to Ghana’s scale. As such they should have an edge in this game. They have not beaten Ghana at home in their last 5 meetings and the football Gods seem to have conspired to hand them all the advantages here. With both sides not wanting to lose, we could have an overly defensive game here. Still, we fancy the hosts to come out with something hence why we are backing a combo bet of South Africa/Draw and 3 or fewer total goals @ 1.50 with Mybet.africa as our final tip.
