Group A Outright Betting
As most fans would probably expect, it is Portugal who find themselves tipped as a standout pick to cruise their way out of Group H this year. While the European giants might still be waiting to claim a first world crown, the Navigators host a string of Premier League-based icons and should be confident of laying down an early marker.
However, although both Ghana and South Korea might be dreaming of clinching a real World Cup upset come November, it is Uruguay who appear to be sat in pole position to follow Portugal out of Group H.

Group H Fixtures
Although it might be Qatar and the rest of Group A who will open this year’s tournament, Group H will have to wait a little longer before they get their own World Cup adventures underway.
Portugal will be hoping to avoid a major upset and make an early statement when they face off against Ghana In Doha on November 24th. However, it will be Uruguay and South Korea who will open Group H when they meet at the Education City Stadium earlier in the day.
Listed below can be found a full breakdown of all the Group H fixtures:
November 24th, 2022:
- 13:00 Uruguay vs South Korea
- 16:00 Portugal vs Ghana
November 28th, 2022:
- 13:00 South Korea vs Ghana
- 19:00 Portugal vs Uruguay
December 2nd, 2022:
- 15:00 Ghana vs Uruguay
- 15:00 South Korea vs Portugal
While Portugal might have their sights set on clinching top spot in Group H, there is no doubt that the European heavyweights will have one eye on how Group G unfolds.
With it already confirmed that the winner in Group H will be set for a Round of 16 showdown against the runner up in Group G, it appears that Portugal are destined for a meeting against either Switzerland or Serbia on December 6th.
However, if Uruguay are to clinch a silver medal finish behind Portugal, then La Celeste are on course for what is a mouth-water affair 24 hours earlier.
With Group H spearheaded by five-time world champions Brazil, Uruguay would be set for an all-South American battle at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.
Group H: A Look at the Nations
With Group H offering a host of noteworthy betting markets for both new and current players, we want to make sure that you have all the vital pre-tournament statistics. Whether your looking to back a BTTS market or a correct correct score, we have you covered.
While Portugal might have thrown away a golden chance to book their Nations League knockout stage ticket during September’s international break, the former European champions are still tipped as a standout Group H pick this year.
However, once again failing to make it past the Round of 16 when they made the trip out to Russia four years ago, the Navigators will be desperate to prove that they’re still among world football’s elite.
Nevertheless, with many feeling that Portugal have been handed a favourable path to the knockout stage in Qatar, Fernando Santos’ side have a string of Premier League-based superstars in their ranks this winter.
Preparing for their sixth straight appearance at a World Cup finals this year, Santos will undoubtedly be calling on the likes of five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo to spearhead their charge in the Middle East.
Alongside the Manchester United icon, Portugal will also travel to Qatar with a squad that includes the Manchester City trio of Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo.
FIFA World Ranking: 9
World Cup Appearances: 7
Highest Finish: 3 (1966)
Manager: Fernando Santos
Captain: Cristiano Ronaldo
Star Player: Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)
While Uruguay might have found themselves some way off challenging South American giants Brazil and Argentina while on CONMEBOL qualifying duties earlier in the year, La Celeste cruised their way to Qatar without much of a struggle.
Despite coming under real scrutiny when closing 2021 and parting ways with long-term manager Oscar Tabarez, it appears that they are enjoying life under new boss Diego Alonso.
Signing off their qualifying adventure with four victories on the spin, the Sky Blues have once again gained a reputation for their rugged approach while on the international stage.
Enjoying what is a recent wave of momentum as they travel out to Qatar in November, Uruguay will be hoping to set a similar level that saw them reach the quarter finals at the 2018 Russia World Cup.
Spearheaded by the likes of new Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez and with that vastly experienced Luis Suarez still among their squad, Uruguay should be confident of finding a route out of Group H this year.
FIFA World Ranking: 14
World Cup Appearances: 13
Highest Finish: Winners (1930, 1950)
Manager: Diego Alonso
Captain: Diego Godín
Star Player: Federico Valverde (Real Madrid)
After missing out on a spot in Russia four years ago and coming under some scrutiny, Ghana have the feel of a nation who are looking to right a wrong this time around.
Eventually booking their World Cup ticket after coming past bitter rivals Nigeria in what was a controversial affair earlier in the year, the Black Stars will be desperate to spring a major upset in the Middle East.
Likewise, with Ghana most remembered on the world stage for that infamous showdown against Uruguay back in 2010, there is nothing more that Otto Addo’s side would love to do than cost La Celeste a spot in the knockout stage.
However, while Ghana might be spearheaded by Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey when they make the trip to Qatar in November, the African giants are enjoying a recent purple patch.
Aside from a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Brazil in a friendly contest during September’s international break, Addo’s side have won each of their other six appearances across all competitions.
FIFA World Ranking: 61
World Cup Appearances: 3
Highest Finish: Quarter Finals (2010)
Manager: Otto Addo
Captain: Andre Ayew
Star Player: Thomas Partey (Arsenal)
While South Korea might have been disappointed not to have clinched top spot while on qualifying duties earlier in the year, Paulo Bento’s men did extend on their remarkable record of reaching the World Cup.
Most famous for their historic run on the world stage back in 2002 as they shocked the footballing world and clinched a fourth-place finish, the Taegeuk Warriors are now preparing for their ninth straight appearance at the finals.
Signing off their pre-tournament preparations with a 1-0 victory against African heavyweights Cameroon during September’s international break, it could be worth keeping an eye out for South Korea this winter.
If Bento’s side are to find a shock route out of Group H this year, then there is no doubt that they will be calling on Tottenham talisman Son Heung-min to drag them to the knockout stage.
Sharing the 2021/22 Premier League Golden Boot with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, the 30-year-old has only continued to cement his spot as a national icon back home.

FIFA World Ranking: 28
World Cup Appearances: 10
Highest Finish: 4 (2002)
Manager: Paulo Bento
