Ghana will be looking to start off their campaign on a strong note

Ghana take on Madagascar at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium in an AFCON qualifier on Wednesday, with both sides being in poor form.

Ghana will be riding the high of qualifying for the World Cup later this year, having beaten Nigeria over two legs back in March. Otto Addo's side have, however, been in poor form and are winless in their last six games across all competitions. They will look to turn things around with a win against Madagascar on Wednesday.

Madagascar have also been in poor form, having won only one of their last six games across all competitions. Fabiano Flora's side will be going into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw against Tanzania last time out. They will hope to take something away from the game against Ghana.

Both sides will want to start their qualification campaign off on a strong note and that should make for an interesting matchup.

Ghana vs Madagascar Prediction

Despite both sides being in similar form of late, Ghana should have enough quality to get past Madagascar on Wednesday. However, the absence of Thomas Partey in midfield will be a huge blow for Addo's side and will definitely have an impact on the game.

We predict a tight game, with Ghana coming away with the win.

Prediction: Ghana 2-1 Madagascar
