Guinea vs Uganda predictions and top betting tips
Uganda makes the journey from East Africa to West Africa to face Guinea in a match from the African World Cup Qualifiers.
Match result prediction: Guinea to Win
For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Guinea will earn all three points against Uganda. Despite being just ten places apart in FIFA's World Rankings, we can see a big difference between Guinea and Uganda. Guinea has some excellent players, especially Serhou Guirassy who has scored fifteen Bundesliga goals for Stuttgart this season in just nine matches. Other players like Moriba, Keita, and Bayo should prove that Guinea is too strong for their opponents.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this encounter will be 2.5 goals or less. Checking the recent form for Uganda, they do not usually have many goals in their games with five of the previous seven matches seeing 2.5 goals or less scored while Guinea has seen their two previous matches end with 2.5 goals or less scored. We do believe Guinea is much stronger than Uganda but it will not include many goals.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Guinea
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Guinea will earn three points via a 2-0 victory over Uganda. The last time Guinea failed to score was when Algeria earned a 1-0 victory in September 2022, since then the nation has managed to score twelve times in eight matches, one of which saw them score against five-time World Champions Brazil. With players like Serhou Guirassy, Mohamed Bayo, Naby Keita and Ilaix Moriba, Guinea should be good enough to beat Uganda with a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory.
Guinea vs Uganda preview
Guinea has won three of their previous seven matches, drawing twice and losing twice. Those three wins came against Ethiopia twice and Guinea-Bissau. The nation has lost 2-1 to Egypt and 4-1 to Brazil while collecting a 2-2 draw against Malawi and a 1-1 draw against Gabon.
Uganda started off 2-23 with a 0-0 draw against DRC before beating Senegal 1-0 in the AFCON tournament, although they did fail to get out of their group after a 3-1 defeat to Ivory Coast. More recently Uganda has lost four of its previous five matches against DRC, Algeria, Mali, and Zambia.
