Guinea-Bissau v Ghana: Kick-off time, team news, head-to-head, form and more

Ghana must avoid defeat in their final group game against Guinea-Bissau to qualify for the Round of 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Black Stars recorded their second straight draw after playing out a 0-0 scoreline with defending champions Cameroon. They had their moments during a tense encounter and hit the post in the second half through substitute Kwabena Owusu.

Kwesi Appiah’s men are still in search of their first win at the tournament and need a win on Tuesday to advance to the knockout stage.

Guinea Bissau, on the other hand, held Benin to 0-0 draw in their previous group match.

They produced a spectacular rear-guard performance to shutout Benin with some last-ditch defending.

But their poor record at the Africa Cup of Nations means they will need to be at their very best to come anywhere close to matching Ghana. The Djurtus have never won a match at the Afcon.

Their poor attack is unlikely to get its first goal against Ghana.

The Black Stars have a pacey yet creative attack led by Jordan Ayew. The trio should ensure that the Black Stars breach a Guinea Bissau defence that is likely to struggle

What is the kick-off time of Guinea-Bissau vs Ghana?

What is the head to head record between two teams?

This will be the first-ever meeting between Guinea Bissau and Ghana.

Team News: Who is available, injured or suspended for Guinea-Bissau vs Ghana?

Guinea-Bissau have no injury or suspension concerns ahead of this match.

Manager Baciro Candé switched from a 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1 formation and that saw Guinea-Bissau earn a point against Benin. He is expected to stick with it.

Ghana head into the must-win match with their squad rocked by injuries and suspension.

Winger Christian Atsu has been confirmed out with a hamstring injury, joining Thomas Agyepong on the sidelines. Samuel Owusu will make his first start in their absence.

Andre Ayew and Jonathan Mensah are doubts after sustaining knocks in Saturday’s stalemate against Cameroon.

Kassim Nuhu is suspended but the Black Stars should be able to cope with his unavailability due to the return of John Boye from suspension.

Predicted starting XI

Guinea-Bissau: Jonas Mendes – Mamadu Cande, Marcelo Djalo, Juary Soares, Nanu – Buru, Sori Mane, Piqueti, Pele, Mama Balde – Toni Silva.

Ghana: Richard Ofori – Baba Rahman, John Boye, Jonathan Mensah, Andy Yiadom – Mubarak Wakaso, Thomas Partey, Kwadwo Asamoah – Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Samuel Owusu.
