Tip Reasoning

  • Egypt have needed extra time in all of their AFCON knockout games and penalties three times.
  • Nine of Egypt’s last ten matches produced under 2.5 goals in 90 minutes.
  • Eight of Senegal’s last ten competitive matches saw under 2.5 total goals.
  • Senegal won three of the last four H2H meetings (one after penalties).

Familiar foes meet yet again

After Senegal’s AFCON final win and Egypt’s first-leg success, we have the third straight edition of this H2H. This time around, one side will book their ticket to the finals, though Senegal have it all to do after losing the first-leg courtesy of a 4th-minute own goal.

As usual, the stakes are incomprehensible for both sides, with Egypt seeking only their second World Cup appearance since 1990 while Senegal are looking for back-to-back finals appearances for the first time in their history.

With so much at stake, we could see a tight encounter here with one goal potentially being enough to settle it. That has been evident in meetings between these nations, with ten of the last 11 meetings producing under 2.5 total goals.

An unsurprisingly tight encounter

Egypt’s run to the AFCON final was a slog for most football fans, with each tie requiring extra time to be settled after either 0-0 or 1-1 draws, thus proving they definitely have what it takes to dig in and frustrate their opponents.

There was just one goal scored across Senegal’s group games, which ultimately led to their goalless draw in the final. As such, we are sticking with the trend of low-scoring, tight African football with a 1-0 Senegal correct score prediction, a scoreline that will take this tie to extra time.

For the main prediction, we are going for a Senegal success as there is no value in backing under 2.5 goals in this game. While they may go on to lose in extra time, they held their own in the first leg and could see out a narrow victory within 90 minutes this time around.
