Ghana Prediction – Can Ghana remain unbeaten?

Ghana’s unbeaten record in all competitions stretched to 6 matches after they registered a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau last time out.

Back-to-back draws with Benin and Cameroon saw Ghana make a slow start to their Africa Cup of Nations campaign in Group F.

A 2-2 draw with Benin was followed by a 0-0 stalemate with Cameroon but they finally came to life in their final group match to qualify for the last 16.

A 2-0 win over bottom nation, Guinea-Bissau, secured Ghana’s place in the round of 16 where they now face Tunisia.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 13 matches in all competitions, Ghana look a solid unit who seem to prefer to grind down their opponents.

Goals have therefore been in quite short supply where Ghana are concerned and indeed, 10 of their last 13 matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

In addition, Ghana have kept 5 clean sheets from their last 6 matches overall, and with the two forwards and brothers, Ayew, up front, they look hard to beat.

Tunisia Prediction – Can Tunisia break down stubborn Ghana defence?

Tunisia also bring a solid looking unbeaten record into this last round of 16 tie with Ghana having put together 6 matches without defeat.

This sequence includes 3 wins and 3 draws, with their victories being achieved against Iraq, Croatia and Burundi.

However, these victories were recorded prior to this Africa Cup of Nations tournament, and they’ve since been held to 3 draws on the trot.

Stalemates with Angola 1-1, Mali 1-1 and a disappointing 0-0 draw with Mauritania meant they had to make do with 2nd place in Group E.

They finished runners-up to group winners, Mali, by a margin of 4 points but do they have enough firepower to trouble Ghana tonight?

In addition, Tunisia have managed to record just 1 win over Ghana in their previous 5 meetings and a similar struggle could be on the cards here.

In these last 5 meetings, Ghana have scored 2 goals or more on 3 occasions.

  • Ghana have lost just 1 of their last 13 matches in all competitions
  • Ghana have kept 5 clean sheets from their last 6 matches overall

Betting Tips Verdict

Ghana seem to just have the edge here but expect a low-scoring game.
