2015 AFCON: Guinea v Ghana

9 years ago

Ghana will be targeting victory when they take on Guinea in their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Saturday.

Sitting second in the Group E campaign, the Black Stars have been forced to play this encounter in Casablanca, Morocco instead of Conakry because of fears over the Ebola epidemic in Guinea.

Maxwell Konadu’s Black Stars enter the game at the Mohammed V Stadium which kicks of at 19:00GMT on the back of one draw and one win in the qualifying campaign.

The Black Stars have an impressive record against Guinea, with the last clash between the two teams ending in a draw though Ghana have won ten, drawn six and lost three times in their last 19 meetings.

Ghana will be eager to maintain their away winning form, says captain Asamoah Gyan after edging Togo 3-2 in their previous game and stake a claim for the summit in the group.

"Our key mission here is to win the match against Guinea. The players are determined to make Ghana proud and qualify for the AFCON," the Black Stars captain said.

However, Guinea, third on the log and a point adrift the top will be targeting a positive result against Ghana, despite having to play away from home as they seek to end their 37 years of wait in claiming a victory over the Black Stars.
