Congo-Brazzaville are fourth and last in Group 5 with Egypt and Uganda with one point, while Ghana are third on two points.
The hopes of the Congo, Brazzaville and Ghana have shrunk in the dream of reaching the 2018 World Cup in Russia, after they drew 1-1 in their last game in the Sudanese city of Kumasi on Friday.
Congo, Brazzaville and Ghana have failed to win in three consecutive games, and the Ghanaians know specifically that any outcome other than a win in the game may mean their final exit from the qualifying race.
Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan admitted that the Black Stars' hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia had dwindled after a 1: 1 draw against Congo Brazzaville.
"We have to admit that Ghana's position on the World Cup was difficult, we wanted to win but things did not go as well as we expected," Asamoah Gian told Ghana Football.
Uganda lead Group D with seven points after a 1-0 win over Egypt on Thursday, followed by Egypt with 6 points, Ghana with two points and Congo Brazzaville with one point.
