GAB vs GHA Dream11 Prediction for Gabon vs Ghana Africa Cup of Nations Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

GAB vs GHA Dream11: Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could return to the Gabon side for this match following his positive COVID-19 test last week. His side defeated AFCON debutants Comoros by a goal to nil in their opening match and they will view themselves as in a good position to reach the knockout stages of this tournament. They come up against a Ghana side that come into this on the back of a slender and late 1-0 defeat to Morocco in their opening match. The Black Stars now require a result against the Gabonese before their final match against Comoros. A draw would appear a solid bet for this one, or a double chance bet in favour of the Ghanaians.

Who will win today’s GAB vs GHA match?

  • Gabon sit level with Morocco at the top of Group C after their 1-0 win over Comoros. That victory ended a three-match winless run and they’ll hope to follow that up with another positive result.
  • Ghana came undone late on against Morocco, with Sofiane Boufal’s 83rd-minute winner a blow for the Black Stars. Ghana have a decent record against Gabon, winning the last two meetings between the pair, but the last time these two faced off was 2011.
  • The Black Stars need to win here or face an early AFCON exit, which should be enough to spur Ghana on to a narrow win.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Ghana in this clash is 2.02 as per bet365.
