Mozambique Vs Zambia


Head to Head –

Zambia defeated Mozambique 4 times before this match in the 4 meetings they had. The last time the score was 3-1.


Preview –

Mozambique’s 4 match unbeaten streak was broken hen they were defeated by Cape Verde Islands in their last match. They lost that match by 1-0. Among the other 4 matches in their last 5, they have 2 draws and 2 wins. They won against Tanzania and Cape Verde Islands (1st match). Their draw was against Zambia (1st match) and Niger. They looked okay but the loss might affect their performance and thus giving the opponents a better chance. If that happens then they clearly will be on the back foot. For this reason they will play this match as the Underdogs.

Zambia isn’t in better form if we compare. They managed to win only once in their last 5 matches. But they have 3 draws and they lost only once. Past confrontation against Mozambique will give them a mental advantage over the other team since they never lost against them. They are coming to this match with a 3 match undefeated streak as well. In these 5 matches they scored 5 goals while they conceded 3 goals. Their offense and defense seemed to be in better form than their opponents and it can be said that they might be looking to get an easy win this match. They are clearly the favorites.
