Why Ghana is a good play versus Uruguay

The Ghanians have played great soccer in this tournament. Ghana lost by a single goal to Portugal, scoring 2 on their side.

Then against South Korea, Ghana rolled, beating the Koreans 3-2. Heading into this match, Ghana’s attack is on fire with 5 goals in the last couple of matches. Uruguay hasn’t scored a goal in two World Cup matches, which means the Uruguayans must pick it up to have any shot versus Ghana.

Why Uruguay is a good play versus Ghana

Uruguay played their normal brand of defense first soccer against South Korea, scoring a 0-0 draw. But in their second match, Uruguay failed versus Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, and Portugal in an embarrassing 2-0 loss.

Darwin Nunes, Edison Cavani, Luis Suarez, and the rest of Uruguay’s deep team know this is their final shot to make it to the knockout stage. We should expect Uruguay to have a more robust attack versus a Ghanian side that, at times, has allowed teams to score goals on the counter attack.

Final Betting Analysis: Ghana vs Uruguay

On paper, Uruguay has more talent, but Ghana is in much better form. The Ghanians have won 3-of-4 and pushed Ronaldo and Portugal in a 3-2 match.

Like fellow African squad Senegal, Ghana has played great soccer this tournament. The Ghanians’ attack is one of the most creative at the World Cup.

It’s not that Uruguay doesn’t have the talent to counter. It’s that the Uruguayans don’t play the same style. So unless Uruguay is much more forward, they will have trouble countering Ghana the way Portugal did.

We must remember that Portugal’s attack includes two of the best strikers on the planet in Fernandes and Ronaldo. Uruguay doesn’t have enough after Nunez to match strides with Ghana’s scorers.

Uruguay is in a deep hole. All Ghana requires is a draw to move to the next round while the Uruguayan’s style is to play defense first and then look for opportunities. Ghana won’t settle for a draw. Instead, they’ll grab the 1-goal victory. 

World Cup Pick: Ghana +370
