Betting tips Ghana vs Madagascar

In a group with Angola and CAR, Ghana will be expected to make a strong start to the qualifying campaign with the hosts ranked considerably higher in the FIFA World Rankings.

Currently ranked 68th, Ghana failed to qualify for the WC but they should be expected to make simple enough work of the visitors who are ranked outside the top 100.

Still, Ghana´s form is not good with no wins in their last 6 matches while they also lost to Madagascar when these sides last met in a friendly some 7 years ago.

More recently, goals have been in short supply for the hosts and 7 of their last 9 matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored. The visitors have also seen the same outcome in 6 of their last 7 matches and a similar result seems likely here with the hosts struggling for form over the past year

Indeed, on the road, Madagascar have lost 9 of their last 11 matches, conceding 2 goals or more in all but one of those losses and it would be a big surprise if they returned from Cape City with anything from this fixture. 

Ultimately, Ghana should get the job done but their own issues in recent months suggests it might not be the high-scoring win they might have hoped for.
