Tanzania vs Malawi Preview & Tips

Both of these sides are missing some of their best players. Tanzania are heavily weakened in attack and Malawi have been struggling to score goals. I am tipping a narrow away win.

  • Tanzania have lost 7 of their last 11 matches (all competitions).
  • Tanzania have seen under 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Tanzania have failed to score in 4 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Malawi have won their last 2 matches (all competitions).
  • Malawi have failed to score in 5 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Tanzania hold a 4-1 advantage across their ten previous matches against Malawi with five draws.

The sides last met in a friendly in 2017 as the match ended 1-1.

Tanzania Form

Tanzania failed to qualify for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations after finishing third in their group. They won two and lost three of their six matches.

Prior to a 1-0 win in their last match against Libya, Tanzania had won one of their previous 11 matches. After a 1-0 win against Namibia in the CHAN for domestically-based players, they drew 2-2 with Guinea.               

A 2-1 friendly loss against Kenya followed before a 1-0 defeat in Equatorial Guinea. Their last match saw a 1-0 home win against Libya in their final AFCON qualifier as Simon Msuva scored the goal.

Tanzania Injuries & Team News

Tanzania are without their two top attackers in Mbwana Samatta and Simon Msuva for this match.

Young midfielder Novatus Dismas did not show up for international duty and misses out.

Malawi Form

Malawi narrowly missed out on AFCON 2022 qualification despite winning their final two group matches.

After a 3-1 loss away to Burkina Faso, Malawi could only draw 0-0 with the same opponents in a damaging result for their qualification hopes. A 4-0 thrashing in a friendly against Ethiopia followed.

Malawi ended off qualification with consecutive 1-0 wins, away against South Sudan and against Uganda. Baroka FC’s Richard Mbulu scored the winner in both matches.

Malawi’s coach Meck Mwase is missing due to COVID-19 as is defender Peter Cholopi.

I am tipping a narrow away victory for Malawi with few goals between these goal-shy teams.
