Ethiopia vs Sierra Leone – Free betting predictions by Football Ground Guide
Here are our top free Ethiopia vs Sierra Leone predictions:
Total match goals prediction – Under 2.5 goals
In our first Ethiopia vs Sierra Leone prediction, we have settled on fewer than three goals. Current team stats point to a high possibility of a low-scoring clash in this upcoming CAF World Cup qualifier pitting Ethiopia against Sierra Leone.
Ethiopia have not scored more than two goals in 8 of their last 10 matches. The hosts did not score in half of their last ten matches. On the flip side, Sierra Leone did not score more than 2 goals in 6 of their last 10 matches. The visitors failed to score in 3 of those matches. The odds for Under 2.5 goals are 1.50, which represents a 67% probability, a result we are likely to see in this fixture.
Team to score prediction – Both teams to score – N0
In another betting prediction for Ethiopia vs Sierra Leone, we expect this to be a one-sided scoring clash. This was the case in the previous meeting. The odds for a one-sided scoreline are 1.57, which implies a 64% probability. Both teams have been underwhelming lately and with H2H stats to look back on, we expect a defensive approach from both ends as they look to kickstart the World Cup qualifiers with at least a point.
Correct score prediction – 1-0 to Ethiopia
In the final Ethiopia vs Sierra Leone prediction, our bet is a correct score of 1-0 in favour of the Ethiopians. The fact that Ethiopia have struggled to score more than a goal in their last ten games means they have a narrow chance here against a side that has done better defensively.
However, home support and a stronger defensive performance that Ethiopians have displayed in recent outings is why we are tipping a narrow 1-0 home victory. Both teams leaked an average of 1.00 goals in their last ten games.
