Portugal vs Ghana prediction and odds as Cristiano Ronaldo looks to fire

Group H favourites Portugal will expect to get the 2022 World Cup off to a winning start when they ace Ghana in Stadium 974 on Wednesday evening. Cristiano Ronaldo and co are a warm order at 2/5 with Betfred to bag all three points against a Ghana side who are 17/2 to cause a shock and blow Group H wide open.

That's a short enough price for a side that has won just three games across the last three World Cup tournaments and almost missed out on Qatar qualification entirely. Defeat to Serbia in the final round of group games meant that Fernando Santos' side needed to qualify via the playoffs.

The now clubless Ronaldo will be looking to show the world that he's not the shadow of his former self that he has looked domestically, and he'll surely get chances with Bruno Fernandes and Bernado Silva pulling the strings in behind.

Portugal will miss influential Liverpool striker Diogo Jota but they they have a group of young players like Joao Felix, Rafael Leao and Nuno Mendes that should complement what is otherwise a very experienced squad. Whether Santos can get the best ouit of the group remains to be seen - many in Portugal believe he cannot.

After failing to qualify for Russia in 2018, Ghana are back on the biggest stage after beating Nigeria in a thrilling penalty shoot-out in their qualification playoff. It was a surprise to many given the Black Cats had come off a terrible Africa Cup of Nations campaign in which they accrued just a single point from their three group matches before being knocked out my minnows Comoros in the last 16.

New manager Otto Addo has since radically overhauled the squad and they now have a nice blend of experience and youth, although they are lacking a top-class keeper and striker. Addo has also not had a great deal of time and opportunity to mould his new-look side so Ghana go into Qatar with work to do if they are to progress from Group H.

Portugal vs Ghana Prediction

There tend to be goals when Portugal come to town. Since 2018, 55% of their competitive fixtures have rsulted in Over 2.5 goals and they have failed to score in just 18% of games.

However, Ghana are not a free-scoring outfit - they scored just seven goals in their six qualifying matches and have failed to score in 30% of their competitive fixtures since 2018 and the absence of a high-class striker might just be a real issue for the Black Cats.

With that mind, the best option here is to back Portugal to win to nil, which is an appealing 11/10 chance with Betfred.
