The first meeting between Benin and Zambia finished as an entertaining 2-2 draw. Benin are expected to make their home from count in this game. Apart from the loss against Nigeria, Michel Dussuyer’s team have done an excellent job. They are in great shape for their World Cup qualifiers that begin in September. Zambia’s away performances have dropped a lot and this is likely to be an invitation for Benin to win the game.
Total goals under 2.5
This game will be the only friendly for Michel Dussuyer’s team before the World Cup qualifiers and this is likely to result in a few experiments. As a result, Benin may not be as effective going forward. Zambia have two more friendly matches and the objective now will be to avoid heavy defeats like they suffered against Senegal.
Benin clean sheet – yes
Benin have been a defensively solid outfit – especially in the home games. Zambia and Nigeria are the only two teams to have scored an away goal past Benin in the last two years. Zambia come to this game with a bad shape after having performed quite poorly in recent away matches. Even though the visitors have confidence of having scored twice in the only game against Benin, the home team are in a much better shape.
Benin vs Zambia: Preview of the International Friendly
Benin do appear to be in a great shape going into the World Cup qualifiers in September, when they will take on Madagascar and Democratic Republic of Congo. Despite the loss against Nigeria back in March, Benin made it to the African Cup of Nations finals.
Milutin Sredojevic has had a mixed set of results since taking over as the Zambia coach at the start of 2020. After a string of good performances – especially in away matches – during the 2020 calendar year, Zambia have suffered a big slump over the last few games. This does not bode well for the team ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Mauritania and Tunisia.
