South Africa were disappointing in the away draw against Zimbabwe. Even though Ghana do have a weakened team with many of the Premier League stars unavailable due to quarantine rules, the team did get a confidence-boosting win over Ethiopia. The Black Stars might be quite happy with a point from this match, as it would keep them in the hunt for the top spot in group G.
Total goals under 2.5
Both South Africa and Ghana did not have a flourishing opening to the September round of qualifiers. There was a total of just one goal in the two matches involving the two teams. The two teams have gone through a very narrow head-to-head record in recent years even if they have met on 15 occasions. Due to South Africa being on a long winning run, Ghana might play for a draw in this game and this should lower the goals tally.
Both teams to score – yes
This match is likely to be low on goals going by the recent history established by the two teams. South Africa and Ghana were able to keep a clean sheet in the opening game of the group, but both will struggle against such an encounter.
South Africa vs Ghana: Preview and Team News
South Africa are unbeaten in eight matches coming into this game. Since suffering the away defeat against Sudan back in March, South Africa have been on a roll and it is unlikely to be brought to an end with a home defeat. The team consists of a strong lineup across the pitch with only Thibang Phete and Thabiso Kutumela unavailable for selection.
Ghana coach Charles Akonnor will be pleased with getting a positive result against Ethiopia despite being without many key players in the squad. As a result of leaving many of the English Premier League players, Ghana looks is significantly weakened outfit. Furthermore, the team will be without Mohammed Kudus and Benson Anang due to injury.
