Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Nuevo Estadio de Malabo will host Thursday’s football game between Equatorial Guinea and Zambia, the two teams who are vying for top position in Group B. Equatorial Guinea quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Tunisia, with the team beating Mauritania thanks to Iban Salvador’s goal from the penalty spot. The bad news for the hosts is that the Fuenlabrada attacker missed the La Liga 2 game against Malaga through injury.
Zambia, on the other hand, are eyeing their second win of the process as well. Since both sides will go for a victory in Thursday’s qualifier, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. When the two national teams met at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations Zambia defeated Equatorial Guinea 1-0 thanks to Chris Katongo’s goal.
