Africa Cup of Nations hosts Equatorial Guinea, benefactors of some refereeing decisions of stupefying dubiousness in the quarter-final, are set to collide with a Ghana-shaped brick wall constructed by English football nearly man Avram Grant in the final four.
After coming desperately close to winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup with Chelsea and Portsmouth the Black Stars gaffer is two wins away from a first major trophy outside of Israel or Serbia.
His side are 4/5 to see off the tournament’s one remaining Guinea, who can be backed at 7/2 to book a final place in 90 minutes next to the 12/5-rated draw.
This vast match-betting spread will quite rightly entice many a bettor, but if you’re hankering for something a little more off-piste, then we’ve got just the punt for you.
If the game is goalless when both parties head for their half-time orange intake, backers will land a 27/20 payday, which could prove extremely profitable for those who choose to invest their £30 free bet sign up bonus in the outcome.

It doesn’t promise an exciting game, but 45 minutes of monotony is a small price to pay for a tidy earner and there are plenty of factors promising it will cop.
Low-scoring games have been strewn across the AFCoN so far, with each of the National Thunder’s four outings yielding fewer than three strikes inside 90 minutes.
All bar one of these were level at the break, while the spare was hardly a goal-fest at 1-0.
Only one match in the tournament involving the Black Stars has seen the net bulge more than once before the break too; they’ve failed to score in two of their four first halves.
