Tip Reasoning

  • Guinea-Bissau have failed to score in five consecutive matches.
  • Six of Egypt’s last seven wins within 90 minutes produced three or fewer goals.
  • Egypt did not fail to progress from the group in their last five AFCONs.

Pivotal clash for both sides

While Guinea-Bissau sit above Egypt with their sole point, their opening day result was arguably worse than that of Egypt as while Guinea-Bissau trudged to a goalless draw with minnows Sudan, Egypt were only narrowly beaten by an impressive Nigeria outfit.

There are 61 places in the FIFA rankings to separate Guinea-Bissau from Egypt, and that gulf in class also shows in AFCON history. The Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau have never progressed from an AFCON group stage in two attempts, while Egypt won the tournament a record seven times.

Given their consistent success in this sphere, it is unthinkable that Egypt will crash out with defeat to a side that have not beaten any noteworthy nation across the last five years, their most impressive victory in that time period was perhaps a 2-1 success over #88-ranked Zambia.

Premier League stars to shine

Given the poor long term form of Guinea-Bissau, one would expect that Egypt will win at short odds here. Considering the low-scoring nature of the lion’s share of games at this AFCON, I predict that it will be safe to add in the caveat of under 3.5 goals to the Egyptian win.

I am going for a workmanlike 2-0 win for Egypt, one which will stand them in good stead for a top-two finish ahead of their final group game against Sudan, watch out for Premier League stars Mohamed Salah and Trezeguet linking up in attack for Pharaohs in this clash.
