The two teams have met 4 times in the past, which includes their meeting in the World Cup qualifiers last October.

Both teams have won a game each in their previous meetings and drawn twice.

Ghana vs Uganda: Prediction

Due to Uganda’s long absent in the competition, they are least expect to qualify from the group. However their recent games have shown they came spring up surprises. If Uganda can put up a similar performance as they did in October against Ghana, they may grab 3 points in this game.

We are expecting Uganda to get at least a point in this game considering their good form of late.
