Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2022 match:
Malawi and Ethiopia, the two teams who failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals, face each other at Bingu National Stadium in the AFCON qualifiers opener. Malawi have not been in action since January 2022 when they suffered a 2-1 loss to Morocco, and they are surely eager to return to winning ways as soon as possible. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Chiukepo Msowoya, who is back to the national team.
Ethiopia, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Lesotho in the double-header in May. Considering that the Walia Ibex managed to find the net in each of their last five games in all competitions, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In their last encounter in a competitive game Ethiopia crushed Malawi 4-0, but a close match is on the cards this time out.
