Match Result Prediction: Zambia to Win

Zambia is our favourite to win this clash with Lesotho. The Chipolopolo have won this matchup 4 times and lost only once to the Crocodiles of Lesotho in five encounters. Two of the five duels were clean-sheet wins for Zambia while Lesotho has failed to keep a clean sheet against Zambia.

Moreover, Zambia scored 14 goals in 5 meetings with Lesotho. On the other hand, Lesotho scored 5 goals in those meetings. Zambia has scored 8 goals so far in the COSAFA 2023 tournament while Lesotho has scored 6 goals in 4 games ahead of the finals.

Half-Time Result Prediction: Draw

While Zambia is our pick to win this game, the Chipolopolo have failed to get a clean sheet so far in COSAFA 2023 Cup. Lesotho on the other hand has bagged two clean sheets in four games, which also happen to come from the only two wins they have had in the tournament. We expect a highly competitive final, with the first-half likely to end in a stalemate.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-2 to Zambia

Our final Lesotho vs Zambia prediction is a correct score and we are predicting a narrow victory of 1-2 for the Zambians. They have done better offensively and boast supremacy in H2H against Lesotho. However, Lesotho's Crocodiles should stage a strong fight in this game, having scored in the 4 COSAFA games played so far. We tip a correct score of 1-2 in favour of the Chipolopolo of Zambia.

Lesotho vs Zambia Preview

Read this Lesotho vs Zambia COSAFA 2023 Cup finals scheduled for Sunday, 16th July.


Lesotho's crocodiles have been offensively consistent, scoring in all four games played so far. However, two wins and two draws have been quite underwhelming. The Crocodiles have won two matches thus far, all with a clean sheet. So while Zambia's Chipolopolo have done better, Lesotho will be difficult to defeat defensively.


Zambia boasts supremacy in this matchup, so it is another important milestone in their quest to continue the dominance of the Crocodiles of Lesotho. Four wins and only one defeat to Lesotho in previous encounters means Zambia comes to this duel as the favourites. However, Chipolopolo will have to keep vigil at the back, having failed to get a clean sheet so far.
