Virginia Mendes Da Cruz from Guinea Bissau will work as the Match Commissioner with COVID-19 responsibilities given to Dr. Christiana Baah from Ghana.

The Black Maidens head into the game with a 3-1 advantage from the 1st leg that was played in Conakry a fortnight ago.

Captain Georgina Ayisha Aoyem shot Ghana into the lead in the 13th after slotting home from a corner kick.

Rasheeda Shahadu doubled Ghana's advantage at the half-hour mark after her left-footed shot from outside the box went straight into the right corner of the post.

Guinea upped their game in the second half and their effort resulted in a consolation goal 2 minutes into the second half.

Any hope of staging a comeback was short-lived when Mariama Maltiti Iddi restored the Black Maidens' two-goal advantage in the 59th minute.
