Welcome to our Ethiopia vs South Africa betting tips, prediction and odds analysis as they prepare to play each other in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
Head To Head
The teams have previously played each other twice.
The teams last played in a 2014 World Cup qualifier back in June 2013 and Ethiopia won 2-1.
The first game between the teams resulted in a 1-1 draw.
Latest Ethiopia results
Ethiopia won their last game 1-0 against Zimbabwe.
Ethiopia have won two out of their last three games (against Zimbabwe and Uganda).
The last time that Ethiopia lost was when Ghana beat them 1-0 last month.
Latest South Africa results
Bafana Bafana won their last game 1-0 against Ghana.
Bafana Bafana have won four out of their last seven games (against Ghana, Mozambique, Lesotho and Eswatini).
The last time that Bafana Bafana lost was when Sudan beat them 2-0 in March.
Bafana Bafana often find it difficult to play when they are away from home, especially in unfamiliar conditions. I expect them to play out to a 1-1 draw against Ethiopia.
Anytime Goal Scorers
Ethiopia- Getaneh Kebede- Kebede is a prolific scorer at international level and South Africa must be weary of him.
South Africa- Bongokuhle Hlongwane- Hlongwane heads into the game on the back of good form and he will be keen to carry that on against Ethiopia.
