Egypt vs Sudan Predictions

  • 12 of Egypt’s last 13 AFCON games, excluding qualifiers, produced under 2.5 goals.
  • Six of Sudan’s last eight defeats came by at least a two-goal margin.
  • Egypt have scored 15 goals against Sudan across their last five meetings.

Walking like Egyptians into the knockout phase

This game is pivotal to how this group will end up, as seven-time champions Egypt could yet find themselves eliminated from this AFCON if they slip up against rank outsiders Sudan, a nation who are ranked 80 places below them by FIFA.

Equatorial Guinea’s success over current AFCON champions Algeria will be fresh in the minds of both sides, and if they won at double figure odds, Sudan may fancy themselves to do the same?

Based on the raw data, this will not happen – Egypt boast arguably one of the best strikers playing in Europe currently in Mo Salah, he will provide a constant threat in this game and he ended a three-game scoring drought for the Egypt squad with his winner last time out.

Too big of an ask for Sudan

The 1970 AFCON champions will no doubt come out and give this their all, but quality should simply prevail at the end of the day. Spirit can take you only so far, and Sudan failed to win each of their last 13 games, failing to score in eight, hardly pulling up any trees.

I predict a handicap-busting win for Egypt, as they know that they can only guarantee a top-two finish by avoiding defeat. The superior frontline of the Pharaoh’s should kill this game off without too much issue to set Egypt up well for what is to come.
