Following their goalless draw at home against Botswana, Zimbabwe will travel to neighbours Zambia looking for better fortunes. The head to head matchups between the two Southern African countries indicates that Zim is primed to record their first win in Group H. They will seek to put aside their faltering issues in front of goal after a Zambian side let in five goals without a response against reigning AFCON champions Algeria.
It seems both national teams are struggling due to lack of direction in management, headed by caretaker coaches. The Chipolopolo (Zambia’s nickname) is coached by interim manager, Aggrey Chiyangi who is in the rebuilding phase. For the Warriors, Joey Antipas is the man on the side-lines hoping to guide his countrymen to qualify for the 2021 African Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.
Zambia vs Zimbabwe H2H Results
Despite playing away, Zimbabwe is the favourites to win the match against Zambia. This prediction is based on statistics from previous games between the two countries. The last four occasions in which the two national teams played against each other, Zambia has failed to record a single win. They played three times in the annual COSAFA cup tournament between 2017 and 2024, Zim grabbing two wins and a single draw. The other match was an international friendly match in which both teams drew 2-2.
Zambia vs Zimbabwe Betting Odds
The Zambian national team will be wounded after a humbling defeat. They will look to change their circumstances with a win against the much-fancied Zimbabwean side. Reeling from a disappointing 0-0 draw in which they missed countless chances, Zimbabwe will hope to take their chances this time around.
