Head to Head


Burkina Faso have won two of their three matches against Ethiopia. Two of those matches were in the year 2000 while the last match ended 4-0 in Burkina Faso’s favour in 2013.

Burkina Faso Form


Burkina Faso have won one and lost one of their opening two AFCON matches. That puts them level on points with Cape Verde going into this final match.

Coming into the tournament Burkina Faso drew three successive matches before beating Gabon 3-1 in a friendly. Burkina Faso lost 2-1 to Cameroon in their first match at the Africa Cup of Nations.

They did bounce back to win 1-0 against Cape Verde last time out which gives them a good chance of progression. Hassane Bande’s strike six minutes before the break was enough to secure the three points.

Burkina Faso Squad & Team News


Burkina Faso have some COVID issues. Edmond Tapsoba could be back for this match after missing the last two due to COVID isolation.

Aston Villa’s Bertrand Traore is still in isolation and won’t feature here.

Goalkeepers: Herve Koffi, Aboubacar Sawadogo, Farid Ouedraogo, Kilian Nikiema
Defenders: Edmond Tapsoba, Issoufou Dayo, Steeve Yago, Oula Traore, Patrick Malo, Issa Kabore, Hermann Nikiema, Soumaila Ouattara, Nasser Djiga

Ethiopia Form


Ethiopia look to be on their way home after losing their opening two group matches. A big win will put them in with a chance of gaining a best third place but their lack of goals makes this unlikely.

Ethiopia came into the tournament having drawn their final two World Cup Qualifiers 1-1 at home to Ghana and in Zimbabwe. They then lost 1-0 to Cape Verde in their opening AFCON match after Yared Baye saw red after 12 minutes.

Last time out Ethiopia went a goal up in the fourth minute against Cameroon thanks to Dukele Hotessa’s goal. They however fell apart in the second half as Cameroon ran riot to win 4-1.

Ethiopia Squad & Team News


Yared Baye is back for this match after suspension forced him to miss the fixture against Cameroon. He should come straight back into defence.

Goalkeepers: Teklemariam Shanko, Fasil Gebremichael, Jemal Tassew.
