South Africa vs Ethiopia: Our Free Match Predictions

This will be the fourth meeting between South Africa and Ethiopia since June 2012. Both teams have registered a win against each other and a draw in the previous three encounters. The following are our best three predictions for South Africa vs Ethiopia:

Note: Odds from Ladbrokes are subject to change.

The hosts are favourites to win

South Africa is our favourite team to win this match. The hosts are leading Group H with seven points and have leaked only one goal in three matches. While they have scored only four goals so far, widening their lead at the top and home advantage should work in favour of head coach Hugo Broos and his squad.

Few goals expected

Our second pick for this game is few goals at full-time. While only one of the previous encounters between South Africa and Ethiopia had fewer than three goals, we think this will be another low scoring match. The hosts will look to extend their ten-match unbeaten run to eleven. At the same time, Ethiopia will fight to keep an eye on the second spot with only three points separating the visitors from second-placed Ghana.

Both teams to score: No

Our third pick for this match backs goals on one side. We think South Africa will get a narrow victory in this match with a clean sheet. They have a better form than the visitors who are struggling to score goals.

Match Preview: South Africa in a Tight Race for Top Spot in Group G

South Africa hosts Ethiopia for the fourth Group G fixture in CAF World Cup Qualifiers. The hosts are neck to neck with second-placed Ghana with only a point separating the two teams. South Africa’s biggest aim in this fixture is to extend their lead at the top to four points assuming Ghana loses to Zimbabwe in their next game. The hosts have scored four and conceded only one goal so far while Ethiopia has leaked four goals and scored only two in three qualifier matches. Apart from home advantage, another motivation for South Africa is a ten-match unbeaten run. The hosts have 6W and 1D in their last seven matches while Ethiopia has 2D and 5L in the last seven away matches.
