Inter friendly games - Ghana vs Chile 100 percent match predictions and teams line-up.

Ghana and Chile will face off against each other for a third-place spot in the Kirin Cup Soccer tournament at the Panasonic Stadium Suita in Osaka on Tuesday.

Ghana are participating in the Kirin Cup Soccer friendly international competition, which resumed this month after a six-year hiatus. The Black Stars were handed a 4-1 drubbing in their opening match against host team Japan. That result meant their elimination, with a third-place slot the only thing at stake.

They will face Chile, who succumbed to the other African representative, Tunisia. Ghana will hope to take something home from the tournament by getting the best out of the South Americans.

Chile were one of the favorites for the tournament, however, their disastrous opener against Tunisia raised questions about their preparedness and ambitions. La Roja are the only South American team in the ongoing Kirin Cup and will likely honor that reputation in their last game.

Ghana will not be putty in their hands though. The likes of the Ayew brothers, Daniel Amartey and Mubarak Wakaso will ensure the West Africans avoid another humiliation in Osaka.

The third-place match will be a tough fight as neither team will want to bow out abashed.

Ghana (4-3-3): Lawrence Ati-Zigi (GK), Andy Yiadom, Daniel Amartey, Dennis Nkrumah-Korsah, Alidu Seidu, Mubarak Wakaso, Mohammed Kudus, Edmund Addo, André Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Christopher Antwi-Adjei

Chile (4-4-2): Zacarias Lopez (GK), Gary Medel, Eugenio Mena, Paulo Diaz, Francisco Sierralta, Jeyson Rojas, Pablo Galdames, Felipe Mendez, Ronnie Fernandez, Joaquin Montecinos, Ben Brereton Diaz.

The chances of victory are quite even for both teams. Ghana will count on their Europe-based stars to make a difference, while Chile will draw from their technical depth to upend the Black Stars.

Ghana have great endurance and the ability to stretch the South Americans. We predict a narrow victory for the Africans
