Portugal v Ghana World Cup Group H Betting Guide

A hugely colourful opening game will see Portugal take on Ghana in Group H of the 2022 World Cup. Uruguay and South Korea are the remaining teams in Group H. It is only one of two groups in the World Cup that has four teams from four different continents. The referee will blow his whistle to start the game Thursday 24th November at Stadium 974. Portugal is currently ranked 9th in the world while Ghana is languishing at 60th.

The Teams’ Routes to the World Cup


With such a high level of quality on the Portugal side, you would have expected them to easily qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. However, in the UEFA Group A qualification, Portugal finished 2nd behind Serbia having played 8 games, winning 5, drawing 2 and losing 1. It was the final game of the group that proved to be the decider when Portugal only needed a draw on home soil against Serbia to win their place in Qatar. Serbia had different intentions and won the game 1 – 2 sealing their ticket to the mid-east. During the group stage, Cristiano Ronaldo finished top scorer with 6 goals as Portugal scored 17 goals and conceded 6 in total. As a result, Portugal had to win their place in Qatar by winning two play-off fixtures. In the semi-final, they beat Turkey 3 – 1 and went on to beat North Macedonia 2 – 0 in the final with 2 goals from Bruno Fernandes.


To reach the 2022 World Cup finals Ghana participated in the Confederation of African Football qualifiers. Having been granted a bye in the first round due to their favourable world ranking they were drawn into Group G together with South Africa, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe for the second round. Playing each other twice, home and away Ghana pipped South Africa to 1st place in the group setting up a two-leg knockout against Nigeria. Ghana won on the away goal rule over two legs and booked their place in Qatar.

The two teams met in the 2014 World Cup during the group stage where Portugal won the match 2 – 1. Despite the positive result for Portugal, it was not enough and both teams failed to qualify for the round of 16.

Prepare to practice the Christiano Ronaldo goal celebration for the 2022 World Cup. As the captain of Portugal, this could be his last World Cup now he is 37 years old.

Considered one of the greatest of all time, he has an outstanding record at club and international levels. With Manchester United he has played 227 games, scoring 102 goals and with Real Madrid 292 appearances, scoring an incredible 311 goals. He is a winner of the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A.

Ghana must be clever when attacking and make their opportunities count if they are to beat Portugal. Winger André Ayew has featured in the Ghanaian team since 2008 and with 107 international caps and 44 goals, it is no wonder he is the captain of the national team. He is the 2nd most capped Ghanaian of all time and before, or during the 2022 World Cup he will become the 1st. Three more goals will see him become the 4th highest goalscoring Ghanaian of all time. In his professional club career, he won the French Ligue 1 with Marseille with who he made over 150 appearances.

He is a player that has been selected in the CAF men’s team of the decade 2011 – 2020 and with his experience and goalscoring ability, he is a player worth watching in the 2022 World Cup.

A Tough Start for Ghana at the World Cup

Portugal will be favourites and expecting to get their 2022 World Cup campaign off to a flyer. However, the Ghanaians are not there to make up the numbers and achieving a result will go a long way to improving their chances of a place in the round of 16. In the world rankings, 51 places separate the teams and Portugal’s experience playing in major finals could prove to be the difference. Portugal versus Ghana is a fine opening game to look forward to in Group H and here at you will find all the betting options you need available for this match.
