Zambia vs Malawi Predictions by Football Ground Guide

Out of the 4 meetings that have taken place between Zambia and Malawi, two were COSAFA Cup. The first cup clash was a placement match that Malawi won 0-1 away from home while Zambia's Copper Bullets had a go at the Flames in the second COSAFA duel in 2019 at the knockout stages and won 6-4 in regular time.

Here are the free three Zambia vs Malawi predictions in the third COSAFA match:

Match Result Prediction:  Zambia to Win

Zambia is our favourite to win this game. The Flames come to this game wary of a side that annihilated them 6-4 in the last COSAFA clash, a knockout match that Zambia won 6-4 in normal time. So, backing Zambia's Copper Bullets to win this game, we also note that Malawi's Flames scored just once in their last five matches. The hosts boast three wins in their last five outings while Zambia had none in as many games.

Team to Score Prediction:  Both Teams to Score -No

Malawians have a tough challenge ahead, especially after worrying performances in recent games. The visitors leaked 7 goals in the period they scored one goal while. On the other hand, Zambia's Copper Bullets netted 1o goals in as many games and conceded 8.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Zambia

Our final Zambia vs Malawi prediction is a correct score betting tip. With the Flames expected to struggle in this match, we are backing the Copper Bullets to win the game with a clean sheet. Our final pick is a correct score of 2-0.

Zambia's efforts in recent assignments have paid off as it saw them improve in the latest FIFA rankings to position 84 from 86. They have 1290 FIFA points but can they live up to the demands of their seemingly increasingly global football status? In Africa, Zambia is 15th overall.  Head coach, Avram Grant, has done an impressive job since taking over the Copper Bullets. Avram averages 2.25 points in 4 matches since December 2022, so we can expect the Israeli tactician to take the Malawians head-on in this round 1 of the COSAFA Cup Group B clash. The Copper Bullets scored 10 goals in their last five games.


Malawi's place in global football rankings places them in a difficult position to challenge the Zambians. The Flames have improved from one place to their current position, which we must admit is a positive sign. However, looking at their recent outings, it would be hard to consume the Copper Bullets in an important fixture as this COSAFA Cup clash. The Flames have only one goal from their last five matches across all competitions.
