Portugal v Ghana

The second encounter of the day in Group H takes place in Stadium 974 between Portugal and Ghana. Portugal secured their place in Group H after going through the playoffs and finishing second in their qualifying group. Ghana, on the other hand, managed to win the second round of qualifying after beating South Africa 1-0 on the final day. 

In the FIFA rankings, Portugal is ranked ninth overall, whereas Ghana is one of the lowest-ranked teams in the tournament at 61st. A lot of young talent are on display for both sides, and it will be fascinating to see how Cristiano Ronaldo gets on after a prolonged period of time on the sidelines with Manchester United.

Bags of confidence and talent in the side who will be pushing to their limits towards the Final. It will be the last chance for Cristiano Ronaldo to win this trophy, and his teammates will do their best to make it happen. Apart from Ronaldo, Portugal boasts an extensive squad with bags of quality, especially in the final third of the pitch – Joao Felix, Bernardo Silva and Rafael Leao. 

Long-standing coach Fernando Santos will play a huge role in squeezing the best out of every individual player for the benefit of the team. Winning the first major tournament in 2016 with the team and now gunning for the biggest tournament of them all, the World Cup. 

In the heart of his defence, he has experience, speed and quality in Ruben Dias, Pepe, Nuno Mendes and Diogo Dalot who has become a starter after moving back to Manchester United. 

LV BET is pricing a comfortable win for Portugal of 2-0 at 24/5 (5.80), with their all-time top goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo getting on the scoresheet at any time at 6/5 (2.20). 


Ghana is one of the African teams that will make the short journey towards Qatar. A huge task awaits Ghana as they prepare to face one of the best teams in world football. Last year in the African Cup of Nations, Ghana managed to get to the Round of 16 before they were beaten by Tunisia. 

Within their team they have the likes of Thomas Partey who plays with Arsenal in the Premier League together with Jordan Ayew of Crystal Palace and Tariq Lamtey of Brighton & Hove Albion. One thing that can be said about this Ghana team is that they never give up and never shy from a challenge. As we have said in previous game previews, the underdogs have less pressure to perform as not much is being expected out of them. 

Ghana has all the ingredients within their squad to frustrate Portugal, LV BET is pricing a 0-0 draw at 31/4 (8.75).  

Match betting odds 

The 2016 European Champions are the favourites to win the game at 3/7 (1.43) with Ghana at 15/2 (8.50) to tip the balance in Group H and a draw at 11/3 (4.65).
