Zambia vs Congo – Best Free Predictions and Betting Tips

Zambia are in action after a 3-0 win over Uganda in the recent friendly matches. Congo are coming into the game after a 2-2 draw at Gambia in the African Cup of Nations match back in September.

Match Result Prediction: Zambia to win

Zambia have a pretty formidable home record after having picked up a victory in three out of the last four matches on home soil. Congo might have picked up away wins over the likes of South Sudan, but they are in very poor shape nonetheless. Congo have not been in action since September and they may not be at the peak of condition unlike Zambia, who picked up a big win over Uganda in the recent home game. Zambia should be able to pick up a win over the hosts.

Total Goals Prediction: Total goals over 2.5

Zambia have been able to find more than 2.5 goals in three of the last four matches on home soil. Congo have not been in action for more than two months. However, they have had good form so far in 2023. Whenever these two teams have met each other in recent times – as recently as in March 2022, there have been plenty of goals.

BTTS Prediction: Goals from both teams – yes

There have been goals at both ends of the page when these two teams have gone up against each other in the last decade. In fact, out of the five meetings between Zambia and Congo, only one match has produced a clean sheet and this was back in 2005. After having had goals from both teams in recent matches, they are sufficiently confident coming into the game.

Zambia vs Congo: CAF World Cup Qualifiers Match Preview


Zambia will be keen on opening up the group stages with a victory. After having never been able to reach the World Cup finals in the past, the team will be hoping that they are much improved scored in recent times will be able to make the difference for 2026 qualifiers. After having struggled even for Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Zambia have just made it to the 2023 edition.


Congo are without a victory in the World Cup qualifiers since 2015. This is an incredible run of games which the team will be hoping that it comes to an end with the start of the group E matches. There are no injury concerns for Congo coming into this game.
