Zambia have a good momentum coming into this game, winning four of their last five competitive match by the start of the year.

Zambia is already at the verge of elimination, but they are fortunate to record a 2-1 win against Comoros. This win helped them to stand a chance for the knockout stage of the contest. What made that win crucial is the fact that it followed a 1-0 loss against Malawi in their group stage. They are currently at the third of the group standings with three points, and a win in this match would be huge for them.
