As part of the next match of the group stage of the African Cup of Nations, the football teams of Egypt and Sudan will compete. Which of the opponents will manage to get three points? LiveResult.Ru evaluates the chances of rivals to win.
The Egyptian team held a very powerful qualifying stage for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where they never lost and were able to make it to the playoff stage. It is impossible not to recall the fact that in December the "Pharaohs" reached the final of the Arab Cup, where they lost to Tunisia in the decisive match. Queiroz's team came to the Africa Cup as a 7-time champion of Africa, but lost to Nigeria in the first match of the tournament. In the second meeting, the Egyptians played Guinea Bissau, which they managed to beat with difficulty with a minimum score.
The national team of Sudan will not go to the World Cup in Qatar this year. At the second stage of the selection, Tia's wards took only the last place in the group. The team also played unsuccessfully in the Arab Cup, where the Sudanese could not get a single point. The Red-whites returned to the Africa Cup 10 years later and in the first match they got the first tournament point after a draw with Guinea-Bissau (0:0). The second match of the group stage of the main football tournament of the Black continent brought defeat from Nigeria and the last place in the group.
Statistics and figures:
- Egypt is a favorite of the game;
- The Pharaohs won only one match out of the previous 5 in regular time;
- Sudan has no wins in 13 previous matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 5:0 in favor of Egypt.
I am sure that the Egyptian national team will be able to teach its opponent a lesson. In this meeting, we are waiting for the victory of the "Pharaohs" with a difference of 1.5 goals. The favorite should win, given the fact that he has a squad available.
