Malawi vs Ethiopia African Cup of Nations Qualification Prediction by LeagueLane

Malawi vs Ethiopia
Africa – Cup of Nations Qualification
Date: Sunday, 5 June 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Bingu National Stadium.

Both these teams had disappointing campaigns in the previous African Cup of Nations tournament, and are determined to make amends for the same this time around.

Malawi had managed to finish second in the Group B table in the 2021 edition of the main competition, trailing two points below toppers Burkina Faso. However, they were able to slot in a total of just four goals all through the campaign.

And in the Round of 16, they did manage to draw first blood against Morocco. But they conceded two goals late into the fixture, and thus got eliminated.

Meanwhile, Ethiopia could not even make it past the group stages. They remained winless throughout the competition. In fact, barring a single draw, they had a perfect losing record.

They had scored the least number of goals in the group and had also let in the most number of goals of all the teams.

Judging recent form, Malawi are supposed to have the upper hand this Thursday. However they have not fared really well in past head-to-head encounters. And for the reason, goals are expected from either end of the pitch.

Malawi vs Ethiopia Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The latest encounter had finished in a 4-0 win for Ethiopia.
  • 2 of the past 3 meetings had 4 or more goals.
  • 5 of the previous 8 clashes had goals from both teams.
  • The latest official fixture between the 2 had finished in a 0-0 draw.

Malawi vs Ethiopia Prediction & Analysis

Malawi have lost just 3 times at home in the past 5 years. And 2 of these defeats had come against Cameroon and Ivory Coast.

On the other hand, the Ethiopians are on a 5-fixture winless run and had also remained so in 10 of their past 11 games. Moreover, they have won just once on the road in the past 3-year period, and in the process, they had even gone on a 5-fixture losing streak.

By the looks of things, expect Malawi to deliver a winning performance this Thursday.

However, Ethiopia had the edge in recent few head-to-head clashes and as a result, they are expected to find the back of the net at least once.
