Ghana favourites to win

We are backing the Black Stars to win this match. They have an impressive history in this competition and this should be Ethiopia's toughest test yet in CAF World Cup Qualifiers. The hosts are a distant third; six points shy of second-placed Ghana. On the other hand, Ghana is two points off the top spot and displacing table-toppers, South Africa should the main agenda for head coach Milovan Rajevac in this fixture.

Ghana to score first

Scoring the first goal has been an important winning strategy in the World Cup Qualifiers. With the quality that the Black Stars bring to this fixture, we have no doubt they stand a higher chance of scoring the first goal on matchday. Ethiopia has a poor defensive record compared to Ghana and hasn't performed better than Ghana in the offensive so far.

Under 2.5

Lastly, we are tipping a low scoring match between Ethiopia and Ghana. The visitors won 1-0 in the first leg and we don't think they will score much away from home. Fewer than three goals at full-time crown our best three predictions for Ethiopia vs Ghana.

Match Preview: Ghana in Last Attempt to Qualify for the World Cup

Ghana has been a perennial qualifier of the FIFA World Cup. However, the Black Stars currently faces a stiff competition in Group G that could stifle their hopes of playing in the world’s biggest football stage. The biggest threat to Ghana is Group E is South Africa. It is safe to say that after four matches, Ghana and South Africa have emerged as top contenders for the big stage. Only one point separate the Black Stars  and South Africa. A trip to the troubled Ethiopia for a fixture that could decide their fate going forward. A win in Ethiopia would mean the next match makes all the difference, especially if South Africa gets a draw or losers their next game. The hosts have no chance of qualifying but we don’t expect them to give away the points in this game.
