Malawi vs Ethiopia: Top Free Betting Tips

Malawi and Ethiopia both played in the 2021 edition of the AFC although neither national team is among the stronger ones in the continent. Will they qualify for the next edition?

Total Goals – Over 2.5 Goals

Ethiopia and Malawi have not played an official game against each other since 2014 but they played a friendly international in 2021. This match ended in a 4:0 win for Ethiopia. While neither of these teams is a particularly high-scoring national team, most of Ethiopia's games away from home finish with goals from both sides and often with over 2.5 goals.

Draw No Bet – Malawi

Neither of these sides is particularly notably stronger. They both reached the AFC group stage this year and Malawi even went further surprising everyone to the 1/8 finals. Most notably, Malawi have been doing pretty well in home games lately and lost only 2 of the last 10 home games since October 2020. On the other end, Ethiopia have won a single match in their last 10 away games since 2019. We expect a positive result for the home team but we are not 100% certain that it will be a win.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

As mentioned above, Malawi have been doing quite well at home over the past couple of years. In most matches, they did not lose the match. In most matches, there were few goals too. But Ethiopia's away games have been quite the opposite – all five of their last outings ended with both teams scoring goals. We expect both sides to net at least one goal and the match to end with a 2:1 win for Malawi.

Malawi vs Ethiopia: Form, Recent Games, and News

Malawi Preview

Malawi have a regular squad without any big names, as opposed to some of the other African nations. None of their players play in any European leagues, even in smaller ones. So, the expectations are not high for Malawi although the team showed incredible spirit in the AFC this January and reached the 1/8 finals.

Ethiopia Preview

Ethiopia's squad is no different than Malawi's. The national team does not inlude any notable names or even a single player that plays in a league outside of Africa. They also participated in the AFC in 2021 but in a group with Egypt and Guinea now, it will be very difficult for them to qualify. Their best chances to win points will be against Malawi.
