Ghana vs Tunisia, Monday’s match for the Africa Cup of Nations, 1/8 final stage, at Ismailia Stadium, Ismailia Governorate, Egypt.
Ghana is aiming for a place in the quarter-finals in this match against Tunisia. Ghana organized this competition eleven years ago, after which they had an excellent cycle for the Black Star. They came to the final twice in that time but have not won a trophy since 1982.
Ghana comes from a 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau in the final Group F game, being the first win in Egypt for Kwesi Appiah’s men, who tied the first two matches in the competition. The Black Stars will face a Tunisian team that is a very solid team but is not a great team. Whoever wins this game will find the national team of Madagascar or DR Congo.
Ghana will try to take this opportunity to score a place among the best. Jordan Ayew is making good competition scoring two goals and should keep his place in the starting eleven.
Tunisia has come to this competition with three consecutive wins in preparation matches, and in this competition, they had three draws, which caused a disappointment to their supporters, who have high expectations for this team.
Tunisia won the championship in 2004 but is not at its best, Alain Giresse’s men want to change the course of things and improve their performances. They hope to get a good game and therefore a positive result and move forward in the competition. The two teams have met on ten occasions, Tunisia has not yet achieved a victory against Ghana.
Ghana has been playing a more offensive football than Tunisia in this first phase of the competition, but they have lacked some quality when it comes to finishing. With all facts considered, my prediction turns out to be the victory of Ghana.
