Ethiopia vs Egypt
African Cup of Nations Qualification
Date: Thursday , 9 June 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Bingu National Stadium.
Ethiopia is set to host to the visiting Egypt in a match of Round 2 in Group D at Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. They both will battle it out this Thursday at Bingu National Stadium.
Ethiopia was defeated in their opening game of AFCON qualifiers by 1-2 to Malawi. They sit third on the group with zero points tallying with Guinea. The hosts are now winless in their last 7 matches along with just one victory in their last 12 fixtures across all venues.
The home side have also failed to gain victory in each of their 3 fixtures at the 2022 AFCON back in January, where they finished rock-bottom in Group A with one point out of the possible 9 schedules.
On the other side, Egypt come into this on the back of a slender 1-0 win against Guinea in their opening match after a disappointing 2022 AFCON campaign. They were beaten in the final of the 2022 AFCON on penalties by Senegal before being knocked out of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification on penalties by the same Senegalese.
The Egyptians is now 2nd on the group with 3 points in hand tallying with Malawi who are at the top. They have mixed results since their last 5 schedules and moreover there appeared a nil figure on their last five games.

Ethiopia vs Egypt Prediction
This will be the first meeting between the two sides in over two decades. Egypt won thrice of their last 5 away fixtures but all of them were on a 1-0 scoreline. They have been impressive at AFCON campaign where they even reached the finals.
Meanwhile, Ethiopia had a poor run lately due to their defensive frailties as they have conceded 18 goals since their last victory over Zimbabwe back in September 2021. They are also on a 5-game winless run at home coming here.
The experienced Egypt will be the one, we feel could secure a win here.
