After a frustrating goalless draw away at Zimbabwe in the group opener, South Africa quickly kickstarted their qualifying campaign with back-to-back wins. Hugo Broos's men started with a hard-fought 1-0 home win over Ghana, as Bongokuhle Hlongwane netted the only goal in the 83rd minute. They made it two straight wins with a 3-1 victory over Tuesday's opponents last time out, as Teboho Mokoena, Mothobi Mvala and Evidence Makgopa all got on the scoresheet in an impressive away performance. Having missed out on the last two tournaments, Bafana Bafana will now be desperate to book their place in next year's World Cup, with another victory on Tuesday further strengthening their position in the group. They meet an Ethiopia side who will see a victory as necessary if they are to stand any chance of topping the group.

Wubetu Abate's men were handed a difficult start to the group, as they made the trip to Ghana and were handed a narrow 1-0 defeat. They quickly bounced back though, as a 94th-minute penalty converted by Aschalew Tamene made the difference in a 1-0 victory over Zimbabwe. The Walia Ibex were brought crashing back down on Saturday, as Getaneh Kebede's equaliser was overshadowed at home to South Africa, with Abate's side now having a chance to quickly exact revenge on their opponents. With four points separating the nations and only one team progressing from the group to next year's tournament, they will know that Tuesday is a must-win game if they are to stand a chance of overcoming the odds and reaching their first World Cup.


Betting Verdict:

While the previous meeting was relatively close until South Africa doubled their lead in injury time, we see Bafana Bafana cruising to a more comfortable victory with home advantage.The hosts boast more quality than their opponents and have demonstrated impressive defensive solidity so far, potentially helping them to another important win in their bid to reach the World Cup.
