Zambia form (all competitions): LWDWLL

Zambia suffered a second 2-0 defeat on the trot when they travelled to the Nuevo Estadio de Malabo on Thursday to take on Equatorial Guinea. Saul Coco broke the deadlock 11 minutes before the interval, before Emilio Nsue struck with three minutes of normal time remaining to put Beston Chambeshi's men to the sword. Since picking up an opening-day win over Mauritiana, the Chipolopolo have failed to pick up a point from any of the subsequent two matches and currently sit third in the group. More importantly, Sunday's hosts are now six points behind current leaders Tunisia meaning that a defeat this weekend could spell the end of their already slim chances of qualification.

 

Equatorial Guinea form (all competitions): WWLLWW

In stark contrast to Zambia, Equatorial Guinea were defeated 3-0 in the opening round of matches but have since amassed six of a possible six points available. As a result, Juan Micha's men have moved up into second place in the group and are just three points off the top midway through the qualifiers. The Nzalang Nacional are also yet to concede in both of their last two matches which is bad news for this weekend's opponents who have failed to score in that time. Sunday's visitors, who have won only one of their last six games away from home, must arrest their slump on the road to boost their chances of going through.

 

Betting Verdict:

Zambia have some catching up to do following those consecutive defeats and will be keen to come away with all three points in this one. The visitors, on the other hand, have turned a corner of late so we predict that the sides will have to settle for a point apiece come the final whistle.
