Gabon vs Ghana Preview & Tips

Gabon got off to a good start while Ghana lost their opening match. Ghana are favourites but they have failed to score in their last two matches. I’m backing this to end in a draw.

  • Gabon are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • Gabon have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Ghana have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 10 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Ghana have won two of their last three matches against Gabon. They have not played each other since 2011, on that occasion Ghana won 2-1 at home.

Gabon Form

Gabon finished second in their recently completed World Cup qualifying group after winning just two of their six matches. 

Since then, Gabon have played two friendly matches in preparations for AFCON. They lost the first match 3-0 to Burkina Fason before drawing 1-1 against Mauritania.

In their AFCON opener, Gabon beat Comoros 1-0 thanks to a 16th minute goal by Aaron Boupendza.

Gabon Team News

Manager Patrice Neveu may have Mario Lemina and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back for this fixture. They had to isolate with COVID upon arrival and thus missed the opening match.

Goalkeepers: Anthony Mfa Mezui, Donald Nze, Jean-Noel Amonome, Junior Fotso Noubi.
Defenders: Alex Moucketou-Moussounda, Lloyd Palun, Johann Obiang, Bruno Ecuele Manga, Gilchrist Nguema, Anthony Oyono, Sidney Obissa, David Sambissa, Junior Assoumou, Yannis N'Gakoutou.
Midfielders: Andre Biyogo Poko, Mario Lemina, Louis Ameka Autchanga, Guelor Kanga, Serge-Junior Martinsson Ngouali, Medwin Biteghe.
Forwards: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Denis Bouanga, Ulrick Eneme-Ella, Jim Allevinah, Aaron Boupendza, Fahd Ndzengue, Kevin Mayi, Axel Meye.

Ghana Form

Ghana won four of their six World Cup qualifiers and topped their group. They did require a controversial penalty in their final match against South Africa to qualify. 

The Ghanaians lost their only pre-AFCON friendly 3-0 to Algeria. It didn’t get much better in their opening Africa Cup of Nations match as they lost 1-0 to Morocco.

That defeat makes this game crucial for Ghana and their hopes of progressing. They will need to offer more attacking threat.

Ghana Team News

Ghana are likely to remain unchanged despite defeat in the last match. Mohammed Kudus is still a doubt.

Goalkeepers: Jojo Wolacott, Abdul Manaf Nurudeen, Richard Attah, Lawrence Ati Zigi
Defenders: Andy Yiadom, Baba Rahman, Philemon Baffuor, Gideon Mensah, Daniel Amartey, Alexander Djiku, Jonathan Mensah, Khalid Abdul Mumin
Midfielders: Baba Iddrissu, Edmund Addo, Thomas Partey, Mubarak Wakaso, Mohammed Kudus, Daniel Kofi Kyere, David Abagna
Forwards: Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, Samuel Owusu, Kamaldeen Suleymana, Andre Ayew, Joseph Paintsil, Jordan Ayew, Richmond Boakye Yiadom, Maxwell Abbey Quaye, Benjamin Tetteh

Ghana have failed to score in their last two matches and lost their AFCON opener. This should be another game shy on goals which I'm tipping to end 1-1.
