Date: Wednesday, 10 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Bahir Dar Stadium (Bahir Dar Town).
In the third round of African Cup of Nations Qualifiers, Ethiopia are going to face Kenya on Wednesday afternoon.
The hosts are positioned at the last fourth spot, but this is only due to the worst goal difference.
All four teams in the group booked a win and a defeat and everybody still have the chance to snatch their place in the top two.
After opening the campaign with a heavy 5-0 defeat away to Ghana, home side celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory against Sierra Leone.
Youhannes Sahle’s side has been in variable form lately, but they haven’t lost in the last three occasions.
Ethiopia were involved in low scoring matches as they managed to improve their defending lately.
Kenya suffered a surprising defeat away to Sierra Leone in the opening round, but they managed to regroup and book an important win over Ghana in the following match.
Johanna Omolo and the lads tighten up their defence in the past few matches and that resulted with two wins in a row and two clean sheets.
However, they are performing much better at home ground and in very rare occasions they manage to remain undefeated at away pitches.
Ethiopia vs Kenya: Head-to-head
Both sides have been successful in their head to head clashes and Kenya managed to celebrate one victory more than their rivals in their ten encounters so far.
One is for sure, when these two sides are facing each other, the crowd cannot enjoy more than two goals.
Ethiopia vs Kenya: Prediction
We are expecting another very tight clash with very few chances for scoring for both sides. Therefore, it is very likely that Ethiopia and Kenya are going to split the points in this one and stay in the race for t he top two spots.
Four times in a row these two teams haven’t managed to produce more than two goals per match. In all four occasions, one of the sides was able to keep the clean sheet. We are expecting another low scoring match which is going to stay under 2.5 margin.
