Team news Ghana

The time has finally come for Otto Addo’s team and the 26 players he nominated last week for the tournament in Qatar to arrive. The Black Stars have been in Doha since Sunday and have received an enthusiastic welcome from hundreds of fans. The support of all Ghanaians living in Qatar and the many fans who’ve travelled to the country is guaranteed for the players at Stadium 974.

With Portugal, Ghana will first face one of the favoured teams, which is filled with world-class players in almost every position. In 2014 they met before (1:2). In 2022, the omens are perhaps even more favourable for the Portuguese than at that time. But coach Otto Addo, who’s experienced in the Bundesliga, knows how to act as an absolute underdog. Even in the decisive play-off match against Nigeria, they were in the underdog position and still qualified for the tournament. It’s a game like David against Goliath

However, the Portuguese shouldn’t underestimate Ghana, just as Goliath once underestimated David. Ghana is agile and cheeky, fast and technically skilled. Switzerland got a taste of this in a recent test match in Abu Dhabi. Ghana won 2:1

Special attention should be paid to Ghana’s striker Inaki Williams. Mohammed Kudus can also make it big at this World Cup

Team News Portugal

From the outside, people want to talk the Portuguese into a bit of a crisis – talk of CR7 and the contract termination with Manchester United is the big topic in the international media. But within the team itself, the many other superstars stress that this isn’t a big issue internally.

Cristiano Ronaldo is recognised in the team, but at the latest since the 2016 European Championship, they know that they can win a title without him. Nevertheless, Cristiano Ronaldo is of course still the most dazzling figure in the Portugal jersey. But players like Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, Rodrigo Leao, Ruben Diaz or Joao Cancelo are among the absolute top European players. Anything less than a place in the next round would be a bitter disappointment for Portugal


Portugal is an old acquaintance of Ghana: they already met Portugal and Christiano Ronaldo at Ghana’s last World Cup participation in 2014. Back then, they gave the Portuguese a hot fight, which they ultimately lost 2-1. Time and again, the Portuguese failed due to their own inability or Ghana’s stable defence. The victory didn’t do Portugal much good at the time. Both teams were eliminated after the preliminary round

Our betting prediction for Portugal against Ghana

Of course, Portugal is the favourite in the match against Ghana, we don’t need to discuss that. But Ghana will make it difficult for Portugal. And Portugal has proven time and again that they’ve difficulties when their opponents are compact. This is the chance for Otto Addo’s team. However, we think the best bet is to give Portugal a clear advantage in the number of corners. We can expect a lot of attacks from Portugal, a lot of chances and crosses from the wings that will lead to a lot of corners – while Ghana will focus more on counter-attacks and shots from a distance

This bet – Portugal -2.5 corners – is offered with odds around 2.00

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
