Ethiopia vs Burkina Faso Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Ethiopia vs Burkina Faso should be a pre-decided contest but we still have high expectations. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Ethiopia are one of the weakest national teams in the world and we doubt that they will have a lot of chances to score in this fixture. Burkina Faso are not in their best shape right now but this doesn't change the fact that they are the far better team. Moreover, they are incredible defensively and rarely concede goals.

Match Result Prediction: Burkina Faso to Win

Ethiopia truly can't score goals against good teams. They have scored a goal in four matches out of their last ten and in 3/4 cases, it was against a weak national team. We do not think that Burkina Faso will concede in this match. Defense is their strongest position and lately, their attack has not been too effective. This makes us believe that they will win with a minimal result.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Burkina Faso

It is a fact that 2023 has not been perfect for Burkina Faso and they have a single win in eight matches. However, they mostly faced top squads. Against Ethiopia in such an important match, we think that they will win. When we compare the Ethiopia vs Burkina Faso line ups, we think that the visitors have a massive advantage.

Ethiopia vs Burkina Faso Team Previews

Ethiopia Preview

Ethiopia's chances in this group are not very big. They started with a surprising draw but they will not win a lot of points against Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, and Egypt. They have one of the weakest squads on the continent and they barely score goals. They did this in only four games since January.

Burkina Faso Preview

Burkina Faso have been quite inactive in 2023 although most other teams on the continent had a bunch of international breaks. They went through some of the toughest teams, so this should be an easier task. We expect them to be in the fight for the top two positions in this group.
