Ethiopia vs Egypt –  Egypt will be hoping to extend their advantage at the top of Group D of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers when they face Ethiopia at the Bingu National Stadium on Thursday. Walia Ibex, on the other hand, are winless in their previous 11 games across all competitions and are hoping to snap their skid.

Ethiopia’s Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign began with a 2-1 loss to Malawi on Sunday, putting them on the back foot. In the first half, Orlando Pirates attacker Gabadinho Mhango scored two penalties to put his side ahead before Abubeker Nasir equalised in the second half.

They’ve now gone 11 games without a win in all competitions, including all three of their AFCON games in January, when they ended bottom of Group A with only one point out of nine. In the 18 games since a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe in September 2021, they have conceded 18, while scoring 9, goals. This bad run has been caused by their defensive frailties.

Ethiopia vs Egypt – Betting Analysis

Despite Ethiopia’s desire to make it back-to-back trips to the AFON, the opposition is unbeaten in their last eight meetings, with six victories and two draws since a 1-0 setback in 1989.Egypt, on the other hand, had to fight hard to scrape a 1-0 home victory over Guinea in their group opener on Sunday.

Galatasaray forward Mostafa Mohamed came up big for the Pharaohs in a tight game at the Cairo International Stadium, scoring an 89th-minute winner to defeat Syli National. Prior to that, Egypt’s chances of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup were dashed when they lost a heartbreaking penalty shootout to Senegal back in March.

After losing on penalties to Senegal in the 2022 AFCON final earlier this year, Ehab Galal’s team are hoping to make their 26th appearance at the tournament. The last time they won a championship was in 2010, when they beat Ghana 1-0 thanks to an 85th-minute Mohamed Nagy goal. In order to get their qualifying campaign back on track, Ethiopia will face an Egypt side that has won seven of their last eight games. We predict Egypt will win by a landslide, based on the wide disparity in class and talent between the two teams.
