Uganda vs Egypt Match Preview
Egypt have bagged six points in their first two Group A outings and now meet Uganda looking to retain the top spot, after beating Zimbabwe (1-0) and DR Congo (2-0) in two rather narrow clashes at Cairo International Stadium. Javier Aguirre has set up a tough defensive line and will now want to build on such performances in search of consistency.
Pharaohs already boast such spirits as we saw them extended a four-match winning streak, beating Tanzania (1-0) and Guinea (3-1) in two pre-tournament friendlies. They’ve conceded just one goal along the way and now stand out as prime favourites to win the tournament.
Uganda have bagged all three points against DR Congo (0-2) and made a great step towards the top 2 cut early on, building on it with a 1-1 draw against Zimbabwe as Emmanuel Okwi opened the scoresheet early on but they failed to keep hold of the lead.
Cranes still have more to play for on the final day of the group stage with Zimbabwe breathing down their necks but have solid chances to get through to the knockout stages even as 3rd placed with four points – all things considered. We should thus be in for a tough challenge and another narrow occasion in Cairo.
We believe Egypt have what it takes to secure the points and keep up their winning streak with a fifth win in a row, which comes at 3/4 with 22Bet and has caught the eye of many as more of generous banker bet at this point.
We’ve seen Pharaohs basing their success on such displays and we’ll now also go for another low-scoring contest on their end, where Under 2.5 Goals FT comes at 4/7 with Surebet247 and looks just as safe an approach to the fixture.
