Egypt vs Algeria predictions and top betting tips
Algeria travel to Egypt as two of the best African nations face off against each other.
Match result prediction: Draw
For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Egypt vs Algeria will end as a draw. Between both of these nations, in the previous twenty matches in all competitions, just two matches has seen a defeat with a defeat each for both nations so it is safe to say these two come into this encounter in fantastic form. With our prediction, the most recent head-to-head result, recent form and FIFA World Rankings, these two nations can not be separated.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that both Egypt and Algeria will find the back of the net. Egypt have failed to score just once in their previous thirteen matches in all competitions which came in a 2-0 defeat to Ethiopia in June 2022 in the African Cup of Nations while Algeria have failed to find the net twice in their previous thirteen matches with both of those coming in a 0-0 draw against Tanzania and then another 0-0 draw with Senegal.
Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that this encounter will be a repeat of the most recent head-to-head result by finishing with a 1-1 draw. Egypt and Algeria are impossible to separate and we predict a tight and cagey affair despite the pressure being off with this match being a friendly, neither nation will want to lose but we do not believe either nation will go all out in hope of winning.
Egypt vs Algeria preview
Egypt have lost just one match in 2023, a 3-1 defeat friendly defeat to Tunisia in September but have won all of their other matches giving Egypt six wins and one defeat in 2023. Those wins came in a 1-0 win against Zambia and Ethiopia, a 3-0 win against South Sudan, a 2-1 win against Guinea and finally a 4-0 and a 2-0 win against Malawi who Egypt played twice in the space of four days in March 2023.
Algeria are currently on a run of seven matches without defeat with just one defeat in their previous 16 matches, however that one defeat was initially a 0-0 draw but Senegal beat Algeria 5-4 on penalties in the African Nations final. Algeria have not lost a match in normal time since a 2-0 defeat to Sweden in November 2022 but to find their last defeat in normal time in a competitive fixture you have to go all the way back to March 2022 when Cameroon walked away with a 2-1 victory.
