South Africa vs Ethiopia, CAF WC Qualifiers, 12.10.2021

Group G leaders South Africa will be hoping to maintain their stranglehold on the group when they host Ethiopia on Tuesday evening in the return leg of their World Cup 2022 Qualifying campaign.

SOUTH AFRICA

After missing the previous two editions of the world cup, South Africa are looking to get back in the mix and they have made a strong start towards actualizing that goal. They lead this group, after picking up back to back wins following their frustrating 0-0 draw in Zimbabwe on matchday 1.

Crucially one of the wins came against their greatest challengers in this group, Ghana, who they beat 1-0 at home thanks to Hlongwane’s late winner.

Saturday’s win ensured they remain top of the group but they need to continue piling up the wins if they are to maintain the razor-thin margin at the top ahead of their visit to Ghana for the all-important win or go home encounter.

ETHIOPIA

Ethiopia hasn’t quite been regarded as a footballing nation given their thin history in both continental and regional events. However, they have had a bit of reconnaissance in recent years. They were however dealt a tough hand when they landed in this group alongside heavyweights South Africa and Ghana.

They held their own in Ghana but narrowly lost 1-0. They bounced back with a 1-0 win of their own over Zimbabwe but had no answers against a marauding South Africa who whopped them 3-1 in their own backyard on Saturday.

This is a tough trip for Wubetu Abate’s charges. But they need to win if they are to stand any chance of progressing from the group.

SOUTH AFRICA VS ETHIOPIA MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING TIPS

All indications are this will be another good day in the office for South Africa. They played well in Ethiopia but things were on the edge well into injury time when they finally put the Walias to the sword with that third goal. The sense of urgency still lies with Bafana Bafana but we feel they will rise up to the challenged roared on by the home fans and we are backing them to win the game at halftime and fulltime @ 1.95 as our first betting prediction.

 

South Africa vs Ethiopia betting tip

Ethiopia have three points and in order to stand any chance of upsetting the odds and qualify from the group, they will have to punch above their weight and give as good as they get. That could potentially open them up at the back and South Africa have some lethal attackers that will make the most of any chances afforded to them. As such we fancy Bafana Bafana to shake the net at least twice in this game @ 1.68 with 1xBet as our final betting tip.
