Egypt vs Sudan Prediction
The Pharaohs have three points going into this game after their first loss to Nigeria at the opening of AFCON. In the second game in this group, Egypt just managed to break down a determined Guinea-Bissau side, with a 1-0 victory to set themselves well for the final group game.
Sudan drew the opening match against Guinea-Bissau with a goal-less draw and gaining the only point. They then come from a 3-1 loss to Nigeria last week unable to secure a win. They currently sit at the bottom of the group after a high conceding ratio.
In December, these two nations faced off in the inaugural FIFA Arab Cup tournament, and Egypt thrashed Sudan by a 5-0, making a 4th straight win.
The Pharaohs lost to Qatar at the FIFA Arab Cup play offs for the 3rd placed teams after drawing on regular while losing at the end after penalties. They have lost 3 games in a row back to back after a win against Jordan at Arab Cup Quarter finals.
Sudan recently took an exit from FIFA Arab World Cup after losing 2 games against Lebanon and Egypt. They also lost to Ethiopia by 2-3 at a Friendly International closing off last year. A draw against Zimbabwe was also seen on early this year at another International friendly.
Egypt have six wins in their last 10 AFCON matches while Sudan suffered six defeats in their last 9 AFCON matches.
We predict a win for Egyptians as , they have lost only 3 times in their past 31 AFCON fixtures. In addition to that, they have a good track record against this rival by securing four straight wins.
