3 way – Egypt 19/20

Egypt come into this game as favorites to win this fixture. Win Probability is 47% in favor of an Egypt win, 31% for a draw and 22% for a Ghana win. This is heavily influenced by Ghana’s poor form building up to this tournament. They have two wins in their last seven games. to add insult to injury they lost their opening match to Cabo Verde who now sit top of Group B on 3 points. The Black stars of Ghana look like a team in transition and a shadow of their former selves.

For Egypt they will be proud of their opening day performance against Mozambique. Although they did not walk away with all three points, they were able to create chances and maintain their unbeaten streak. Extending it to 6 games without a loss. The Pharoah’s have also been the first team on the score sheet in six out of their last six matches. This has resulted in Egypt winning the first half in four out of their last five fixtures. 

This is Egypt’s game to lose and the odds-on Egypt winning this match are sitting at 19/20.

Total Goals – Over 2,5 17/10 

It was a dominate display from Egypt the last time out. They enjoyed 61% of the possession, 21 shots at goal, 5 shots on target, 10 off target and 6 shots blocked. They had 7 corner kicks and 1 big chance missed. For Egypt, this match had everything except the result. they will take on a Ghana side that for lack of a better word, were lacking in the finishing department. They had only 1 shot on target against Cabo Verde. In addition to having 6 shots off target and 3 blocked shots. They know how to create chances with 3 big chances created and 2 big chances missed. Both teams have in them to get a goal in this game and depending on who has the best finishing on the day, I expect more than 2,5 goals to be scored with odds on that sitting at 17/10 

Anytime Goal Scorer – Mo Salah 31/20 

The Liverpool star found the back of the net against Mozambique, opening his account in this year’s CAF Africa Cup of Nations. even though it was from the spot, the Egyptian star will want to add to his account and draw himself closer to the golden boot. He is a threat in open play and with him on penalty duty for the Pharaohs it is highly likely that he will be on the score sheet once again. The odds-on Mo Salah being anytime goal scorer in this match are sitting on 31/20.
