Ghana vs South Africa
International – Friendlies
Date: Saturday, 15 June 2019
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Police Officers Club Stadium Dubai.
The Ghana side will be looking to secure the win when they clash with South Africa on Saturday, at the Police Officers Club Stadium in Dubai, in what will be the final warm-up match for the former before they travel to Egypt for their African Cup of Nations Campaign.
South Africa national football team will be facing Angola before they make their own trip to Egypt. With the South African team’s last away match ending in a victory for them only on penalties after extra time, the Ghana side will be surely be fancying their chances of securing the win.
However, considering that Bafana Bafana have been drawn in the same group as that of the mighty Ivory Coast in the African Cup of Nations, they will be desperate to start impressing as it would potentially help them start their campaign on a much stronger note.

Ghana vs South Africa Prediction
Kwesi Appiah’s men are mostly like to take the win on Saturday when they clash against South Africa in a warm-up match ahead of their respective African Cup of Nations campaigns. This is a team currently enjoying a good run of form, with just one loss in their last three matches.
Jordan Ayew scored a brace the last time they were on the road, and will be hoping to get his name on the score sheet in the fixture against the South Africans.
On the other hand, the Zulu boys have seen all of their last three matches being decided on penalties, after failing to grab a clear advantage in both regulation and extra time. With just two out of the three wins, the Stuart Baxter’s do not look like a convincing side that can take the win at the end of the ninety minutes.
The Black Stars have been leaving it quite late when it comes to scoring goals at home, with all of their last three home goals coming in the second half. The last three away goals for South Africa have also come in the final 45 minutes of the game.
The game on Saturday will most likely not be seeing any goals in the first half, while a clear decider could be seen in the latter half. It is most likely to be a slow first half with the momentum certain to pick up after the break.
