Ghana vs Uruguay - 2022 World Cup Betting Guide

Ghana will play against Uruguay in their last game in Group H. The match will take place on the 2nd of December, and will be held at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah.

As the last game of the group, this will be the deciding moment where the teams can make their final push to reach the round of 16. Uruguay will be the favourites to win this game, as the team has many more household names in their squad, but with the youth and energy in Ghana's team, they may be able to pull off a famous win here.

Ghana Team Info – Dreaming of 2010

Ghana successfully qualified for the 2022 World Cup after beating Nigeria in the third round of the CAF qualifiers. The African nation first qualified for the World Cup in 2006, and they managed to reach the round of 16. In the 2010 World Cup, which was hosted by South Africa, they managed to improve their record. They came second in a group with Australia, Germany, and Serbia. The only African team to reach the round of 16 suddenly had the attention of the entire continent. They beat the United States 2-1 in extra time, and met Uruguay in the quarterfinals. The game was 1-1 at the end of the second half of extra time, when Ghana was awarded a penalty. Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez illegally punched the ball off the line, and so Ghana had a chance to win the game in the dying seconds. Asamoah Gyan, their striker, missed the penalty, and the game went to a penalty shootout, which Uruguay won. In the World Cup of 2014 Ghana was knocked out in the group stage, and in 2018, they failed to qualify.

The Ghanaian team consists of many top players, including the Ayew brothers Jordan and Andre. Andre has 106 appearances for Ghana, and has scored 23 goals. Jordan, who is the younger brother, has 81 appearances and 19 goals. The two brothers are sons of Abedi Pele, who is considered to be Ghana’s greatest ever player. Other top players in the Ghanaian team are midfielder Thomas Partey and defender Daniel Amartey. Just recently, Inaki Williams announced that he will represent Ghana. The Athletic Bilbao striker had represented Spain in 2016, but after not being called up for numerous competitions, he finally decided to represent Ghana.

Uruguay Team Info – Several Talented Players

Uruguay sat in 6th place in the world rankings at the start of the CONMEBOL qualifiers, but afterwards they fell to 13th place, where they sit currently. The team did not have a poor qualification campaign, but their performances were overshadowed by those of Brazil and Argentina. Uruguay won 8 games, drew 4 and lost 6, scoring 22 goals but also conceding 22 goals. They only managed to keep 8 clean sheets, 3 of which were 0-0 draws. Despite this, their attack flourished, with striker Luis Suarez scoring 8 goals and midfielder Giorgian de Arrascaeta scoring 5. Uruguay has a good history with the World Cup, having hosted the inaugural event and won it, and then won the first World Cup when it was resumed after the Second World War. They have reached fourth place 3 times, most recently in 2010. In 2018, the team reached the quarterfinals, but was knocked out by France.

Fernando Muslera is their longtime goalkeeper, and with 133 caps to his name, he will likely be an important player in the upcoming World Cup. The Uruguayan defence has a few older players, such as Martin Caceres, Sebastian Coates, and their captain Diego Godin. They also have younger players, such as Jose Gimenez, and Matias Vine in the defence. In midfield, they have quality players in Matias Vecino, Rodrigo Bentancur, Federico Valverde, and Lucas Torreira, to name a few. Luis Suarez is the leading goalscorer for the side, with 68 goals from 132 appearances, but they also have Edinson Cavani, and the young Darwin Nunez, who was signed by Liverpool in the summer for £85 million.

Ghana vs Uruguay Betting Preview

Uruguay will be the odds on favourite to win this game and there are plenty of bets that you can make on how they may do that.

Asian Handicap

Handicap betting is when you bet on a team to win by a certain margin or more. The bigger the margin, the larger their odds will be. You can also do the reverse, placing a bet on a team to win with a certain number of goals added to their score, but those bets come with increasingly shorter odds.

If you pick Uruguay with a handicap of -2.5 then Uruguay should finish the match 3 or more goals ahead of Ghana for you to win your bet. If you apply a handicap of -2 then you will need them to also win by 3 or more, but if Uruguay finishes the match only 2 goals ahead of Ghana then you will receive a refund.

You can pick a mixture of the two handicaps with -2.25. This will put half your stake on a handicap of -2.5 and the other on a handicap of -2. If Uruguay wins the match by 3 or more goals then both halves of your bet are fulfilled and you will receive your full winnings. If Uruguay only finishes the match 2 goals ahead of Ghana, then the -2.5 part of your bet will lose, but you will receive a refund from the -2 half of your bet.


This bet requires you to predict the result at the end of the first half and the result at the end of the match. It is slightly more difficult than a straightforward match bet as you will also need to specify the outcome at half time. In the match between Ghana and Uruguay you will find the odds for Draw/Draw, Draw/Ghana, Uruguay/Uruguay, Ghana/Uruguay, and so on.
