Comoros - host hoping to end their qualifier on a good note
The 2023 COSAFA Cup was a complete bust for the Comoros, as they were eliminated in the group stage after suffering defeat in two of their first three matches. This was consistent with their troubles in the qualifications for the Africa Cup of Nations, where they had picked up two wins and lost three of their five group-stage games so far. This was in keeping with their overall performance in the qualifiers. The Comoros were most recently in action in the AFCON qualifiers on June 17, when they defeated Lesotho 1-0 at the Orlando Stadium thanks to a goal scored by Youssouf M'Changama in the 90th minute. The match took place in the qualifying round. Younes Zerdouk's men are now in third position in Group H with six points out of a possible 15, five points ahead of rock-bottom Lesotho in the standings, and four points behind second-placed Ivory Coast in the race for the last qualifying spot. Although the Comoros will be hoping to finish their qualifying campaign on a positive note, they will be up against an opponent that has won each of their previous four meetings.
Zambia - visiting team to cement their spot atop the standings
Zambia prevailed against Lesotho in the COSAFA Cup final with a score of 1-0 to claim the title of champions for the seventh time. This achievement was accomplished in the month of July. Wisdom Moyela, age 29, scored the lone goal of the game in the 77th minute at the King Zwelithini Stadium, which prevented the Likuena from winning their first COSAFA Cup title. The game was tight throughout, but Moyela's goal was the only one that counted. In their most recent match, which took place on June 17, Zambia defeated Ivory Coast by a score of 3-0. They will now continue their participation in the qualifying rounds for the Africa Cup of Nations. Since falling to Les Elephants by a score of 3-1 in the opening encounter of Group H, the Chipolopolo have won each of their remaining four matches, a run that has brought them back to the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 2015.

Expert Betting Tips
The goal for the second leg of their match against Zambia for the Comoros will be to perform just as well as they did in the first leg. Even though it is now impossible for the island nation to qualify for the AFCON tournament in January, the island nation will still receive a significant morale boost from a victory against the visitors. Youssouf M'Changama now has two goals scored for this season, and it is anticipated that he will add to that total. Patson Daka and Kings Kangwa, both of whom have scored twice throughout the qualifying rounds, will most likely carry the load for Zambia, which will likely put its faith in them. It's possible that the guests won't be able to "finish in style" despite their best efforts. It is without a doubt that with their squad depth in terms of quality, Zambia will eke out a victory by the skin of their teeth against Comoros in order to keep their undefeated record intact.
