Ghana will take on Switzerland. The match will take place on Thursday, 17 November.
Ghana leaves a controversial impression. There have been quite a few games this calendar year. The victories came in 2 games, with Madagascar in the summer, and with Nicaragua in the friendly match. The African Cup of Nations was a failure for the national team. The national team lost to Morocco and Comoros. They also lost to the debutant Comoros. Gabon was able to draw, but they were not able to make it to the playoffs. The main objective of the 4th Anniversary has been accomplished: Ghana’s return to the World Cup. The Black Stars reached the quarterfinals in 2010, losing to Uruguay by a huge margin. However, they won the World Cup again in 2014. They did not leave the group. The decisive encounter with Nigeria was decided by the away goals rule. It was 0-0 at home and 1-1 away. It is important to not win. Otto Addo and his coaches have players to monitor.
Schweiz changed its coach but maintained its level. The long-running era of Petkovic ended last summer with the Euro quarter-finals. France, World Cup winners, was knocked out in the first round. Petkovic lost only on penalties. Murat Yakin was appointed as the new coach. The first chapter in this position was great. The “neutrals”, which were Italy’s victorious Euro team, managed to make it directly to the World Cup. However, the “Scuadra Azzurra”, which also lost to North Macedonia in March, failed at the joints. The Nati failed to make it through the first round of the League of Nations. It was there that the transformation began in June. The Swiss won against both the Czech Republic and Spain, which was a significant achievement. This allowed them to avoid being relegated from Division A. They were able to regain faith in their abilities and strengthen their faith in each other.
GHANA is a leader in African football. They had never met the Swiss before, neither at the world championships nor in test fights. Nominal hosts are perceived to be weaker than European competitors, according to bookmakers. It is clear that this means more training, but with some increased responsibility. It’s better not to accept the offer of less than 2.5 goals.
Prediction: The match will be scored with less than 2.5 goals.
