Zambia - an important match for the Copper Bullets
The Copper Bullets are in second place in Group H with three points after two games. They started off their season with a loss to the Elephants by a score of 3-1, but they were able to bounce back and defeat Comoros by a score of 2-1. Enock Mwepu, a former midfielder for Kings Kangwa who has since retired, and the team as a whole were able to overcome an early deficit after Ben Nabouhane gave the away team the lead in the 13th minute. Patson Daka, a top player for Leicester City, and Fashion Sakala, a forward for Rangers, are two of the players that Zambian coach Avram Grant has selected to be part of the 27-man roster for this month's matches.
Lesotho - the Crocodiles will struggle
Lesotho are currently in last place in the group with a total of just one point. In their first game, they lost 2-0 to Comoros, but they got a point back when they played Cote d'Ivoire to a scoreless draw. The Crocodiles still have four more matches to play, and they will try their best to turn things around so that they can qualify for the AFCON tournament for the very first time. The Crocodiles have already lost both of their qualifying matches for the African Cup of Nations without scoring a single goal, which is why they have given up two goals.
Expert Betting Tips
When compared to Lesotho, this Zambia team has a significantly larger number of quality players who are based both abroad and in Zambia, which is why the bookies are heavily favoring Zambia. It will be hard for Lesotho to keep from giving up goals in both halves of the game, even though we think they will do a good job defending to keep from losing and even though we think they will do well defensively. As a result, I envision a victory for Zambia and a total of more than 2.5 goals in this high-scoring contest.
