Following the thrilling matchup between the two national teams in the 2010 World Cup quarterfinals, Ghana will be seeking retribution against Uruguay.After 120 minutes of play, the score remained tied at 1-1; however, there was significant controversy late on when Luis Suarez was sent off for handling on the line; Asamoah Gyan missed the ensuing penalty kick; and Uruguay advanced to the world cup semis after penalties at the end of extra time. With three points from their first two games at the tournament—a 3-2 loss to Portugal in their Group H opener and a 3-2 win vs South Korea—Ghana can now knock Uruguay out of the 2022 competition. The Black Stars are currently second in Group H.

If South Korea loses to Portugal, who are already through to the last 16, a draw would be sufficient to advance Otto Addo's team to the next round. If Fernando Santos' team loses to South Korea, the group's second-place finish will be determined by goal differential.

It would be really great news for Africans if Ghana manages to qualify for the knockout rounds for the first time since 2010. They were knocked out at the group stage level in 2014, and failed to qualify for the 2018 world cup in Russia. This time, following their win versus South Korea, there are many hopes on them to qualify as runners up in their group and revenge against Uruguay.

Uruguay has struggled to make an impression at the 2022 World Cup competition, drawing 0-0 with South Korea in their first group encounter on November 24 before falling to Portugal 2-0 on Monday, leaving them bottom of Group H and in danger of being eliminated early.

 If South Korea loses to Portugal, three points would be sufficient to advance when they play Ghana. If both South Korea and Uruguay win, the winner will be decided by goal difference.

Having finished third runners up in the 2010 world cup championship before getting to the round of 16 and quarterfinals in 2014 and 2018 respectively, Uruguay, which is known for winning the World Cup in 1930 and 1950, is well familiar with what it takes to advance far into the competition.

It would be surprising to see the South American country fail to go past the opening round of the competition because they haven't been eliminated from the tournament's group stage since 2002, almost 30 years after they were knocked out in the group stage.

Expected Ghana national team starting XI vs Uruguay(4-2-3-1): Ati-Zigi; Lamptey, Amartey, Salisu, Mensah; Partey, Samed; Kudus, A Ayew, J Ayew; Williams.

Expected Uruguay starting XI vs Ghana(3-5-2): Rochet; Gimenez, Godin, Coates; Varela, Valverde, Bentancur, Vecino, Olivera; Nunez, Gomez.

Odds on the various bookmakers heavily favor a Uruguay win, with the team having no option but to win the match and the fact that they have never failed to qualify to the knockouts in the world cup since 2002. The odds on an Uruguay win are at around 1.7

It's important to know that Ghana are in form coming to this match and they will just be looking for at least a draw to qualify. However they are expected to win at odds of around 4.7 in Betway.

Darwin Nunez is the first player most expected to score at any time during the match, at odds of 7.50 at Bet365 sportsbook.

The Blackstars will be full of confidence heading to this match as they have scored in all their group stage fixtures. They narrowly lost to the Portuguese and overcame a South Korea side that drew with the Uruguay national team. On the other hand, the Uruguay team has been struggling in front of goal during this tournament, not having scored a single goal yet. They come to this fixture knowing they need to win to proceed to the knockout stages. History favors them, but we predict a Ghana draw or 2-1 win vs Uruguay. Over 2.5 goals could also be a very interesting wager since in all the matches that Ghana has played in, there have been goals.
