The African Cup of Nations is hotting up, and teams are becoming increasingly desperate to get more points on the board to avoid an early exit from the competition. A prime example are both Zambia and Tanzania both of whom that will square up against each other in their second game of the group respectively.
Former champions, Zambia does not have the depth of their previous AFCON winning squad nor do they have the doggedness that saw them win the title in 20212.However, they still carry some threats with several young exciting players within their squad.
Tanzania does not have the pedigree of their opponents but they rely mostly on their zeal and will power which has seen them qualify for their second consecutive AFCON. While Zambia may pose a threat to their ambitions of progressing to the knockout stage, they will also give the Southern Africans some problem.
Going by the recent records of meetings between these two, not a lot of goals is expected in this match. Therefore, we predict that there will be less than three total goals scored in this match as our final Zambia vs Tanzania prediction.

According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Under 2.5 Goals
Going by history, these two always produce a low scoring affair whenever they are up against each other. In their last five meetings, three of those matches returned Under 2.5 Goals. And considering what is at stake in a difficult group at the African Cup of Nations, both sides will be cautious while looking for all three points to put themselves in a good stead to progress. Therefore, we may witness another low scoring encounter between these two teams. With this, we expect the match to produce less than three total goals.

Prediction 2: 2nd Half Most Goals
The encounter between Zambia and Tanzania will be a closely fought encounter, and we expect few chances to be created in the match. Both teams are likely to be cagey in the opening minutes of the game and defend robustly especially throughout the first half. Aside from that both sides always play with a low block and they may lead to few chances created. Therefore we expect little chances in the first 45 minutes. Therefore, we recommend that you bet on most goals-2nd half on Paripesa.

Prediction 3: Over 7.5 Corners
This fixture is one that can not be called easily. Although Zambia are the more illustrious of the two, they have been struggling much like their opponents Tanzania. Knowing that, the Taifa Stars will fancy themselves to push the former African champions and take their chances. Zambia will also try to press forward for opportunites at the other end, but with the resolute defending of Tanzania, we predict that the there will be at least 8 Corner kicks awarded in this match as our final Zambia vs Tanzania prediction.
