Portugal U20-Ghana U20 Betting Preview: Why backing Portugal to score at least twice is a shrewd bet

With Portugal scoring freely and Ghana yet to keep a clean sheet, Phil Kitromilides is backing A Seleccao to net at least twice this afternoon
Unbeaten as well as being the tournament's top scorers, it is little wonder Portugal are clear favourites at 11/10 (2.10) with Paddy Power to overcome Ghana.

Two wins and a draw saw the Portuguese top group B with 10 goals scored and they seem to be playing with real confidence.
Ghana for their part are offered at 12/5 (3.40) and find themselves in the knockout stages despite finishing third in their group. Yet the African side were unlucky, certainly in their 1-0 group stage defeat to Spain, and possess the ability to play with real speed and strength.
The bookies certainly think there will be goals in this one with both teams to score offered at just 4/7 (1.57) and over 2.5 goals at 4/6 (1.65).

Neither of those two prices overly appeal despite both outcomes looking likely, so instead, backing Portugal to score over 1.5 goals at 5/6 (1.83) seems a better option.
This better has comfortably paid out in all of their games in the competition so far, and with the side boasting the tournament's top scorer in striker Bruma, there is every chance that Portugal can score twice against a Ghana side yet to keep a clean sheet.
For a value bet backing Portugal to score in both halves at 15/8 (2.88) looks extremely tempting, given they did just that in all three of their group games.
