Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Niger and Ethiopia square off against each other in the Africa Cup of Nations third qualifying round on Friday afternoon. Niger are stuck at the bottom of the table, with the team experiencing all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-2 loss to Madagascar. The Menas are desperate to give fans something to cheer about, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Ethiopia.
Wubetu Abate’s troops, on the other hand, did remarkably well to claim a major scalp in their second group game, with the team beating star-studded Ivory Coast at home. Ethiopia aim to move one step closer to securing qualification for the AFCON finals, and we predict that they are going to take advantage of Niger’s shaky defence. The game will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
