Mali vs Zambia: Best Free Predictions by Football Ground Guide

With no winner from the last Mali and Zambia encounter, the upcoming duel is expected to generate a lot of excitement from fans of both national teams. Football Ground Guide tipsters have narrowed down to best free Mali vs Zambia predictions as follows:

Mali to open the scoring

Mali’s recent exploits have seen the team climb up 6 places in the latest FIFA rankings. On the other hand, Zambia fell one place down the ranking list. The hosts have had a good run in recent games. After failing to win in three games, Mali got back to their good run to win twice on the bounce ahead of the duel. On the other hand, Zambia has failed to secure a win in their last two games of 1D and 1L. Before that, they had bagged three wins in a row. We are backing Mali to score first against Zambia in this game.

Mali to win

We also think Mali will get all the three points. They have not played an international friendly at home in four such fixtures since October 2020. All their last four friendlies were on the road and they won once before losing the last three. A home friendly fixture should be an opportunity to win such a game in their first home assignment this year.

Under 2.5 goals

Zambia’s last international friendly fixture was a win on the road away in Sudan. This will be their first friendly fixture in 2022. They bagged two wins and a draw in the last three friendly matches (all on the road), so we expect the visitors to be a tough opponent in this clash. The last and the only previous duel were at home to Zambia, a match that ended 0-0. Under 2.5 goals is our pick for the clash.

Mali vs Zambia Match Preview


Mali plays its second international friendly in 2022 at home. The first one was away in Malawi, a game they lost 2-0. They also suffered defeats in the only two friendly fixtures played in 2021 (all on the road). But with the first such assignment at home in nearly two years, home victory is our expectation.


Zambia is yet to play an international friendly in 2022. Thus, this trip to Mali will test their performance against the hosts, a team they previously held to a barren draw at home. The visitors have played 7 games in 2022. They have 4W, 1D and 2L in the seven games they have played in 2022. With that, we think Zambia will be a tough opposition to beat, so we expect only a few goals.
