World Cup 2022 Portugal vs Ghana: Predictions

On the one side is Portugal, one of the favorites of the tournament. Portugal qualified for the World Cup after finishing 2nd behind Serbia in their qualifying group, beating North Macedonia 2-0 in a play-off match. Last time they went out at the Round of 16. So, Cristiano Ronaldo and his team this time they’ll try to improve and get the maximum possible, especially, considering that this World Cup is most probably the last one for Cristiano Ronaldo.

On the other side is Ghana. They qualified for the World Cup after finishing the first in their qualifying group, before winning on away goals in a 1-1 aggregate draw over a two-legged play-off with Nigeria. Last time they played in a World Cup was in 2014.

Portugal are the favorites of the match, however, it will be tight for them.
