Ethiopia have never been able to get to the World Cup finals, but the defeat against Ghana is unlikely to be a major blow to their morale. The team has been playing well of late and this is especially true in the home matches. Zimbabwe might look to hold out as they have done in recent matches. Zimbabwe have gone to draw three out of the last five matches in all competitions – two of those draws coming in away matches.
Total goals under 2.5
The lack of goals from Zimbabwe has been conspicuous with the team failing to score in three out of the last five matches. The threat posed by Ethiopia is likely to be cancelled out by a deep defence from Zimbabwe.
Goals from both teams – yes
Zimbabwe are likely to be very difficult to score against in this match. They have the opportunity and potential to create trouble for Ethiopia in the final third just as the home team. Both teams should cancel out each other in many aspects, but they may find it difficult to keep a clean sheet.
Ethiopia vs Zimbabwe: Match Preview + Team News
Ethiopia are likely to make huge changes to the starting line-up, as manager Wubetu Abate is quite likely to be pleased with the display shown by his team. Fasil Gebremichael is likely to come in goal ahead of Balcha Shanko, who had to be substituted in the recent match against Ghana. Ethiopia will not have any injury worries coming into the game.
Zimbabwe were able to provide a strong performance against South Africa to once again continue their good progress under Zdravko Logarusic. The confidence of Zimbabweans is quite high owing to a run of six matches without a defeat in all competitions. However, a lack of goals threat continues to play spoilsport.
