Burkina Faso registered their first win of the tournament when they beat Cape Verde 1-0 in their last match. This win could prove to be the most important for their qualification from the group, especially since Cape Verde is their closest rival for a qualification place. Both Burkina Faso and Cape Verde are on 3 points going into this last round of games so competition is still tight.
Burkina Faso have been performing well so far, even in their first game loss to hosts Cameroon. They will be hoping for a big win as they meet Ethiopia, considered the weakest team in the group. Burkina Faso have no choice but to go for a win because they do not know what will happen in the Cape Verde vs Cameroon game.
Ethiopia looked to be doing well in their last game against Cameroon, until they collapsed towards the end and eventually lost 4-1. They have now lost their opening 2 games and are all but relegated from the competition. Nevertheless, a convincing win here could give them a lifeline as one of the best 3rd-placed teams from the group stage.
The Walia Ibex could welcome back Yared Baye, who got marching orders after a second yellow card in their opening game, and has now served his 1-game suspension. Otherwise, all players are available for duty going into this crucial last group game. A good start like in the Cameroon game, in which Ethiopia took the lead in the 4th minute, can set them on the path to an important victory.

Burkina Faso look strong enough to get a win here. They were impressive against both Cameroon and Cape Verde. They are also likely to dominate the game physically with their big, tall players against Ethiopia’s relatively small guys. The Burkinabe defense is strong enough to deal with Ethiopia’s attacks while the forward line will most likely get at least 1 goal.
For Ethiopia, they have no choice but to go on an all out attack. They need victory in this game at all costs. This is likely to leave their defense open to their opponent’s attacks. For this reason, we feel that Ethiopia are likely to concede a goal here. We go for Burkina Faso to win in this match. You can find other football betting tips on our site for free.
