Ghana vs Comoros Tips
We’re back, and this time, we’re off on our jollies to Africa. Ghana have been one of the surprises of the tournament, failing to win their first two group games, and facing a shock early exit from the tournament. The Black Stars are the third most successful team in AFCON history, and were looking to impress, aiming to pick up a first title since 1982. But all has not gone to plan for the Ghanaians, picking up just one point from their first two games, and desperately in need of a win, in a bid to finish as one of the best third place sides.
Comoros have had a debut tournament to forget, losing to Gabon and Morocco in their first two games. They themselves could be in with a chance of finishing third, but will need to overcome what looks like a vastly superior Ghana side in tonight’s game.
First up, I've gone against the grain in terms of results at this AFCON. There’s been 26 group games so far in the tournament before today, and only 23% have seen over 2.5 goals land! It’s not been the most goal-laden competition as of yet, but I’m thinking that’s bound to change at some point. Comoros’ last five games have seen this bet land three times, losing two of the games to Egypt and Palestine. Ghana will have a point to prove in this game, and will want to show that they are no pushovers if they are to get through in third place. With Comoros’ place at the tournament seemingly over, expect heads to drop, and the EVS to land.
Next up, we have the ever-familiar Andre Ayew. In his last game against Gabon, Ayew became the first Ghanaian in AFCON history to reach 10 goals in the tournament. His goal also meant that he’s now scored in six separate tournaments, equaling the record set by Asamoah Gyan, Kalusha Bwalya, and Samuel Eto’o. The second all-time scorer for his country, Andre and his brother Jordan are the attacking threats for the Black Stars, and after the late-equaliser conceded last time out, will have a point to prove tonight.
Ayew has had the most shots on target for Ghana in the tournament so far, and the 13/2 looks like more of an appealing price than the 13/10 for him to score anytime.
Good luck if you’re following these bets, and please gamble responsibly.
