Uruguay vs Ghana match prediction

South American teams are leading the way at this tournament and African nations tend to find them a tough nut to crack, as South Africa found out when going down by three goals to the Uruguayans in the group stage.

Uruguay have been very good down back conceding just the one goal to this stage and with Suarez and Forlan up front they have the potential to pose plenty of problems for the Ghana defence.

The Ghanaians have struggled to score from general play this tournament and it’s not going to get any easier against a very tough Uruguay defence and this is a match that Uruguay should be able to win all things being equal.
