Guinea Bissau vs Ethiopia Betting Tips: GUINEA BISSAU TO WIN

As they continue their search for their first-ever berth in the pinnacle of the global international scene, Guinea-Bissau has kicked off their qualification campaign on a positive note, collecting four points from the initial duo of encounters, battling to a 1-1 stalemate away at Burkina Faso in the curtain-raiser before edging out Djibouti with a gritty 1-0 win on November 20 on foreign soil.

Following the flip of the calendar year, however, Djurtus encountered a rough patch, stumbling in all seven of their initial tasks in 2024, a stretch that encompassed a woeful exit from the AFCON group phase without a single point, yet their most recent outing sees them at last shaking off the nightmarish spell with a hard-fought triumph over Sudan in late March during a friendly encounter.

With the African powerhouse Egypt expected to breeze through the group without breaking a sweat, the battle for the playoff spot intensifies, and the third round of qualifications sees Luis Boa Morte's side in a prime position to snatch the second spot, as the top two hopefuls Burkina Faso face a daunting trip to the Pharaohs, while the Guineans have a considerably easier task at hand.

Their next task comes in the form of the Ethiopia side, which appears utterly powerless to navigate past the initial stage of qualifications, let alone contemplate a major tournament, as their lifeless opening nil-nil draw versus Sierra Leone was followed by a horrendous performance where they were trounced 0-3 by the attack-minded Burkina Faso on matchday two.

Realistically speaking, the Walia Ibex's sluggish start to the qualifiers comes as no surprise, considering they have been extremely blunt in the final third by managing just one shot on goal in the first two matches, and their prospects for a turnaround in fortunes seem rather dim, having ended each of their last four away trips in defeat and firing blanks on three occasions in the process.

Ethiopia, ranking among the weakest African sides at 143rd in FIFA's World Rankings, has often struggled to carve out successful results during qualification campaigns, finding themselves on top only twice in their previous 14 such outings, while they last road victory in World Cup qualifiers dates back to as far as 2013.

Entirely harmless in attack and struggling away from home, Ethiopia do not look like they will be a tough fish to fry against a Guinea-Bissau side who are aware that any dropped point could scupper their top-two hopes. Boasting home comfort and superior quality on paper, we envision Djurtus will find a way to breach the defensive resistance of their Thursday rivals in a closely contested affair.
