Zambia Uganda betting preview with odds an our tips

Uganda have taken just one point from their last three African Nations Championship. matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Uganda are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Zambia should prove no easy feat either – Uganda haven’t won against any African Nations Championship. leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Zambia have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Zambia dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the African Nations Championship.’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Zambia are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Zambia and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Zambia’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Uganda are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Uganda took a point away from Zambia (1-1 draw).

Notably, Zambia’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Zambia have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four African Nations Championship. away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Uganda, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Uganda getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Uganda are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Zambia hold the best away record in the African Nations Championship. (W8 D2 L1). Uganda’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Zambia’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Zambians could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Zambia win at 15/2 with bet365.
