Ghana are one of the few top favorites still in the tournament at the 2019 Africa Cup. Will the team reach the quarter-finals against Tunisia? Here is our tip!
Ghana vs Tunisia Football Betting Tips
Ghana and Tunisia face each other in the last round of the Africa Cup 2019. Both teams are unbeaten after the preliminary round – but that does not mean that they have convinced so far. The Ghanaians reached five points for the group victory, the Tunisians in turn landed without a single threesome in the knockout stage. Is there a knot in the direct duel?
Ghana – Statistics & Current Form
The previous tournament results: 2: 0 vs. Guinea-Bissau, 0: 0 vs. Cameroon, 2: 2 Vs. Benin
If a title candidate does not win the tournament after three tournament matches, the team will hardly be able to give a positive testimonial. In the case of the Ghanaians, one must therefore also state: There is more!
For the start of the Africa Cup in Egypt in 2019, the team met on football dwarf Benin. Sporty lie between these teams worlds – but on the lawn was nothing to notice. On the contrary: After just two minutes, the Ghanaians were in the duel with the blatant outsider behind, ultimately, you had to invest a lot to get hold of a point at all. The match ended 2: 2, and while the Ghanaians disappointingly started the tournament, Benin delivered directly to the opening a first sign for the performances that should follow (4: 1 in the round of 16 against Morocco).
In the second group match Ghana played against Cameroon, the supposedly preferred final for the group victory. Both teams operated with great caution, so that offered hardly exciting goalscene scenes. Without major incidents, the game rippling, which is why in the form of a goalless draw ultimately the only appropriate result – 0: 0.
In the final preliminary match Ghana finally met Guinea-Bissau, the next football dwarf, even smaller than Benin. This time, the Black Stars managed to take control and build a dominant game. Ultimately, they won 2-0 through sovereign – but still left the team offensive to be desired. Because it is clear: Ghana has been the constant in African football for years, for the Black Stars are higher standards. And these could not be fulfilled so far.
Nevertheless, the five points were enough to grab the group victory ahead of Cameroon and Benin. Now the team wants to storm into the quarterfinals – and much, much further. Since 2008, the team reached at each African Cup final round the semifinals, this record to expand. But above all, you want one thing: the first triumph since 1982 – but you will have to improve significantly.
Possible lineup Ghana:
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah can rely on one of Africa’s most individual squads. Beside the Ayew brothers and alto star Asamoah Gyan one knows above all Thomas party of Atletico Madrid. The midfielder is currently Ghana’s best, around him could form the following eleven:
Ofori – Baba, Audioo, Boye, Yiadom – Partey, Wakaso, Owusu, Kwabena – J. Ayew, A. Ayew
Tunisia – Statistics & Current Form
The tournament results so far: 0: 0 vs. 0. Mauritania, 1: 1 vs. Mali, 1: 1 vs. angola
The Tunisians are still without victory at the African Cup – and at the same time in the second round. Three draws were enough for the Eagles of Carthage to qualify as one of the four best group stages for the knockout stage.
There, Ghana is by far the biggest task for the Tunisians, which is why they need to increase significantly. So far, the team could hardly make a positive impression.
At the start of the group stage, the team met Angola, against which one first deservedly took the lead. After the break, however, missed the Tunisians to manage the leadership sovereign – instead Angola found back into the game. Ultimately, the game ended in a performance-oriented 1-1.
Subsequently, the Tunisians met Mali, an at least respectable opponent against whom the focus was obviously on the defensive. Thanks to a compact defense work, the team hardly allowed anything, but at the other end of the field sprayed little danger. However, once the teams played in front of the opponent’s goal, they finished efficiently. The final result: 1: 1.
In the third group match against Mauritania had the chance offered to complete the preliminary round with a loose victory – and possibly even retire as a group first in the second round. However, things turned out differently: once again the Tunisians acted too harmless, so that hardly any offensive material was produced. The receipt: a bleak 0: 0.
Bottom line, the Tunisians therefore pull more bad than right in the second round. The team is still waiting for its first victory, and the football world for the team’s first convincing appearance. As long as the second is not delivered against Ghana, one can confidently forget the former.
Possible lineup Tunisia:
Tunisia’s squad is not bursting with quality, so coach Alain Giresse’s hands are tied. He will rely on the names he has already heard in the tournament so far when choosing his starting lineup. The following list seems conceivable:
Hassen – Bronn, Meryah, Haddadi, Kechrida – Msakni, Aouadhi, Skhiri, Srarfi – Khazri, Sliti

That Ghana is ahead of the bookmakers is understandable. The bottom line is that the team can simply unite the main arguments on their side: the team has the better single players, they played the better tournament so far, they are in eternal comparison in front (2 wins, 1 draw, 0 defeats).
Tunisia, on the other hand, after a mixed group stage, is mainly due to the gracious tournament mode, which means that they are still represented. Nevertheless, against Ghana should be over – because so far revealed the “Carthagan Eagles” hardly qualities that would have to fear the opponent. We therefore expect Ghana to make it to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup for the seventh time in a row – it would be a record.
