Ghana bid to make it four wins from four when they face Sudan for the second time in a week in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Tuesday. Ghana beat Sudan 2-0 at home on Thursday, but will they repeat the victory at Al-Hilal Stadium in Omdurman?
It is seven games without a win for Sudan after an Andre Ayew double earned Ghana a 2-0 win in last week's meeting between the sides.
Hubert Velud's side's only win in their last eight matches came in the opening game of African Cup of Nations qualification as they defeated minnows Sao Tome and Principe 4-0 at home.
Since then it is four defeats and three draws. They lost 1-0 to South Africa and 2-0 to Ghana to sit in third spot in Group C.
Sudan have also drawn with Tanzania and Zanzibar in the CECAFA Championship and lost 2-1 to Kenya in the same tournament. They also lost 3-0 to Tunisia in a friendly and drew 1-1 with Togo in a friendly.
