The Portuguese were just one point behind table leaders Spain in the 2022-23 Nations league with the Black stars thriving tremendously since their World cup qualifiers Victory against Nigeria. The Portuguese have scored a total of sixteen (16) goals in all (8) eight qualifying matches thereby showing its strength and viscosity in the attack area.

The Portuguese face the black stars of Ghana in their opening game of the World Cup, the Black Stars poses to be the strongest African team in the competition after winning more than 80% of their World Cup qualifiers and beating the Super Eagles to a place in Qatar. With so much composure defensively and having conceded just 4 goals in all 8 qualifying matches, it is not far-fetched to see Ghana's defense hold off the great attacking power and threats of the Portuguese. The Portuguese have a track record of scoring goals and we doubt that Ghana’s defense can stop them, we predict at least a goal in the first half for the Portuguese for 1.69 odds at 1xbet.

The South Korean Team is a team that should not be underrated and in their past World Cup history we have seen them pull off stunts as they did in the 2018 FIFA World cup defeating the Germans. The South Koreans had a smooth ride in the World Cup qualifiers, losing only to the UAE in March. Paolo Bentos team conceded only four goals in all eight World cup Qualifier matches, scoring a whooping 33 goals to land them the slot at Qatar.

The Black Stars of Ghana face the South Koreans in their Second game of the World Cup. The last time both countries went head to head was in a friendly match in 2014 which had the Black Stars go home with the victory in a 4-1 defeat against the South Koreans. The South Koreans have never defeated the Ghanians and the World Cup stage seems to be the perfect stage for a new record. The South Koreans have shown their resilience against African countries as they defeated Cameroon in September and the Egyptians in June. We predict a win or a draw for the Ghanians for 1.53 odds at Bet365.

An unfinished business and a sour taste of history to be settled between both teams, The Black Stars of Ghana were knocked out of the 2010 World Cup quarterfinals by Uruguay in dramatic fashion denying the Ghanians of achieving a feat never achieved by an African Team in the World Cup. Both teams clash again in the 3rd match of Group H with an opportunity to revisit old wounds.

Uruguay on the other hand were somewhat slack in the World Cup qualifiers, conceding a total of 17 goals in their last 12 qualifier matches. However, the Uruguans are well vested and stronger in the attack area, they have scored a total of ten (10) goals in their last five (5) matches defeating the canadians in a 2-0 victory in September. The Ghanians will definitely find it hard to hold off the attack forces of the uruguayans, we predict a first half of immense footballing thereby a Draw in the first half for 2.08 odds at Betking

1xbet gives a whooping 3.5 odds for the Black Stars of Ghana to make the Playoffs again. It's a hard feat to achieve considering the cadre of teams tied with them in Group H. Portugal is a very dominating team with a great squad and they will hope to make the top of the group with Uruguay and South Korea seeking for the same glory. If the Black stars can defeat South Korea and hold off Uruguay to a draw, they can consider themselves in the Playoffs.

Inaki Williams to finish as the Group H top scorer is valued for 18 Odds at Betking, we doubt that that can happen with Cristiano Ronaldo seeking to increase his total goal records, Andrey Ayew to finish as the Group H top scorer is valued at 55 Odds, he might even not get adequate playing time. However, The Ghanian team to score fewer goals at the Group H is valued at 1.90 odds and it's a bet we can stake on considering the teams the black stars are tied with in Group H.

The Ghanian team has a track record of advancing past the Group stage in the World cup tournament, in the 2014 world cup they advanced to the quarter finals and only missed the semi finals by an inch. With the quality of international players in the Ghana Squad and if they apply similar pressure as they did during the qualifiers they might land another qualification through to the playoffs. Ghana to finish second in group H is at a whooping 5.5 odds. We predict for Portugal to finish first and Ghana to finish second at 5.80 odds at 1xbet.
