The 2022 FIFA World Cup gets back to the crease with one more arrangement of coordinates this week as Ghana clash with Uruguay in a significant H experience at the Al Janoub Arena on Friday. Currently rooted to the bottom of Group H, Uruguay must climb a mountain to reach the knockout stages.
La Celeste will need to rebound this week after suffering a devastating 2-0 loss to Portugal in their previous match. On the other hand, Ghana is currently in second place in their group and if this match goes well, they could possibly qualify. The African team won by a narrow margin over South Korea last week, 3-2, and they will try to do the same in this game.
Ghana’s famous 2010 defeat of Uruguay in the FIFA World Cup is one of their many memorable encounters. Luis Suarez will lead the Uruguayan defense this week after a significant role on the day. Ghana scored three goals against South Korea after giving Portugal a run for their money in their first match. On paper, neither team has a better record than the other, and this matchup could end in a draw.
Prediction: Ghana 1-1 Uruguay
Ghana has only played Uruguay once, but Uruguay has a good record against them and has won that game. The previous time these two teams met was in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and Uruguay won a contentious quarterfinal matchup. In the 21st century, Uruguay has won all four FIFA World Cup matches against African nations and is currently undefeated in those matches.
Ghana is attempting to win the FIFA World Cup in a row for only the second time in its history, having previously achieved this feat in 2006. The last South American team to fail to score in the group stage was Peru in 1978, and Uruguay has failed to score in 21 attempts across two matches so far.
