Ethiopia welcomes Nigeria to the Addis Ababa Stadium on Sunday afternoon in a first leg 2014 World Cup play-off and expectations are high in the East African nation that the Walia Antelopes will book their first world cup ticket ever.
Keshi’s side has not lost a game since the qualifying series began and they are outstanding favourites to secure maximum points far away from home. They are 21/20 (2.05) choice with Ladbrokes to win on Sunday.
Sewnet Bishaw’s men will aim to record a shock win over their highly-rated visitors plus a revenge of their 2-0 defeat to the same outfit when they last met at the 2013 Afcon. You can back them at 13/5 (3.60) to get a win.
The draw is available at 19/10 (2.90) with Ladbrokes.
Ethiopia will be without star striker, Getaneh Kebede who is condemned to the sidelines due to injury and bearing in mind that there exist a prolific Saladin in the Antelopes’ fold, you can expect trouble for the Super Eagles; defence. It will definitely not be out of place to back Ethiopia to score in both halves at 11/2 (6.50).
Eagles’ goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has been in superb form in the French league keeping seven clean slates he returned from Israel and you can back him to repeat same feat against Bishaw’s side and get another clean slate. You can back the Nigerian to keep a first half clean slate at 2/5 (1.40).
