Ghana vs Madagascar predictions and top betting tips
Madagascar makes the journey from their Island off the East Coast of Africa to the Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana for a match from the first round of qualifiers from the CAF World Cup Qualification stage.
Team to win-to-nil prediction: Ghana to Win-to-Nil
For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Ghana will win this encounter and keep a clean sheet against Madagascar. Despite not winning the previous two encounters against Madagascar, Ghana is still comfortably better than their opponents boasting players like Inaki Williams, Mohammed Kudus, and Tariq Lamptey amongst many other incredibly talented players. The defence of Ghana should be able to keep out the attack of Madagascar and has showcased its strength defensively by managing to keep out nations like Algeria, Switzerland, and Nigeria in recent years.
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. Ghana is much better in every department but will not win this match by many goals. Madagascar are a strong team when they work together and will not allow too many chances for Ghana's attackers but the quality that Ghana does have will be overpowering at points to allow enough goals to be scored to win, but not too many.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Ghana
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Ghana will win this match by a goal margin of two goals. Ghana's defensive options are more than capable of keeping a clean sheet against a poor Madagascar side while the attackers are more than capable of scoring two times with the club boasting Inaki Williams, Jordan, and Andre Ayew as well as youngsters Ernest Nuamah and Antoine Semenyo.
