African Cup Of Nations – Burkina Faso vs Ethiopia | BRK VS ETH Dream11 Prediction
Burkina Faso is going head to head with Ethiopia starting on 17 Jan 2022 at 16:00 UTC at Kouekong Stadium, Bafoussam city, Cameroon. The match is a part of the Africa Cup of Nations, Group A. Currently, Burkina Faso is ranked at 2nd position, while Ethiopia holds 4th position. Burkina Faso and Ethiopia’s only previous encounter in the Africa Cup of Nations took place in the group phase of the 2013 tournament – Burkina Faso won 4-0. It is The Stallions’ biggest victory to date in the tournament. Burkina Faso has only lost one of their last five games in the group stage of the Africa Cup of Nations, with that lone defeat coming against Cameroon on MD1. They will be looking to win consecutive games in the group stage of the competition for the first time since February 1998. Ethiopia is winless in their last 10 games at the Africa Cup of Nations and has lost their last four in a row. A defeat here would equal their longest losing run in their history in the competition [five games between 1968 and 1970].

Traore will hope to stay healthy while away, something he’s been unable to do all season, resulting in just six appearances and his recent start. If he can find some form with Burkina Faso and return fit.
2. Gustavo Sangare
After hours of enthusiastic build-up to the Africa Cup of Nations opener, Gustavo Sangare silenced the vibrant Cameroonian crowd in one fell swoop, with his 24th-minute strike causing a deafening hush in Yaounde.
- Shimelis Bekele
Shimelis Bekele of the Egyptian side El Gouna is the highest-capped member of the squad and also its second-highest goalscorer.
2. Amanuel Gebremichael
Amanuel Gebremichael is a 22-year old attacker who plays for Saint George, Ethiopia’s biggest club. His goals won the previous club Mekelle their first-ever league title, but he has found life far harder in the capital.
