Egypt vs DR Congo Match Preview
Egypt haven’t really seen water to their mill but still edged past Zimbabwe to bag important points through a late-first half winner from Trezeguet, now hoping to build on the performance and seal their top 2 spot as they meet DR Congo at Cairo International Stadium.
Pharaohs have thus connected a three-match winning streak after beating Tanzania (1-0) and Guinea (3-1) in two pre-Africa Cup of Nations friendlies, as Javier Aguirre boasts solid defensive displays and has a lot to build on with obvious threats moving forward – primarily in Mohamed Salah and Trezeguet on the wings.
DR Congo had, on the other hand, come into the tournament on the back of a five-match unbeaten streak but failed to cope with Uganda on the opening day of the campaign, where the rivals opened the scoresheet early on and set it out of reach early in the second half.
Leopards have never beaten Egypt and such records will surely add to the worries as upset feels highly unlikely, with the attacking line struggling to produce consistently and netting just once in three June outings. They will now need more but we don’t feel they have what it takes to make it happen.
We will thus stick with Egypt to make it two out of two early in the competition and do so with confidence, as we go for a Home win to Nil at 21/20 with Netbet. They’ve been solid at the back and it feels struggling DR Congo will have troubles breaking them down.
Still, we don’t feel we’re in for a thumping and with that in mind, we don’t expect many goals on Wednesday evening, as we also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/6 with Hamabet which really seems like a generous banker bet as both sides enjoy such clashes on the regular lately.
