Will see Picks and bets on Ghana – Uganda match in our Review.
Match 1 of the qualifying round of 2018 World Cup cycle, in Russia Ghana – Uganda will be held on Friday, October 7 at 18:30 (GMT) on the Tamale Stadium. The favorite in this game is the national team of Ghana, which has the highest chances of first place in Group E. In this group also play Congo and Egypt and only one team will make its way into the final of the World Cup.
Ghana’s national team in the qualifying cycle of world championships won six of the previous eight matches, having suffered only one defeat. And at home she won five victories in the last five matches with a total score of 21:2. If we take into account the previous qualifying round of the World Championships, that Ghana has not lost at home since January 2001, when conceded with a minimum score of 0:1 Liberia. After that, she won 16 of 19 games at home, and three more times played a draw. However, she conceded only five goals 15 times and left his own goal intact.
Uganda can not boast the same impressive statistics, but it should not be underestimated. She has won four of the five previous matches in the qualifying round of the World Championship, losing only on the road to Senegal 0: 1. At the same time from 14 away games in the qualifying World Championships, starting in April 2000, the Ugandan team won only one and suffered 11 defeats. During this time she scored only six goals and never more than one goal per game, and in eight cases are not scored at all.
With such statistics, it is difficult to expect a positive result in visiting Ghana and, most likely, the third round of the qualifying campaign, it will start with a defeat. Incidentally, the last away match with her in the qualifying World Cup cycle – in 2005, Uganda has lost with the score 0:2 and now this looks the most likely outcome.
Predictions for the match Ghana – Uganda (MON 2018, Africa, Round 3, Round 1, 7 October): Ghana will win 2:0; Uganda will not score
