Zambia v Zimbabweclick here to bet

Zambia secured their spot in the final courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Madagascar in the semi-finals.  Their quarter-final match against Namibia finished goalless after 90 minutes and Zambia went on to win on penalties.

Zimbabwe have required penalties for both their quarter-final and semi-final, their quarter-final against Botswana finished 1-1 and their semi-final against Lesotho finished 0-0.



Zambia 27/20

Draw 39/20

Zimbabwe 24/10


Suggested bet:  The draw at 39/20 and under 1.5 goals at 13/10.

Bookmakers are expecting a low scoring game with under 2.5 goals priced at 4/10.  I cannot argue with them based on the results of this tournament so far and will go for the bigger price at under 1.5 goals which would have arrived in both semi-finals.  I am also going to have a bet on the draw as there should not be much between these sides and there is every chance it will be all square after 90 minutes.
