Egypt vs Djibouti: top free betting tips
Djibouti travel to Egypt for their first round in World Cup Qualifiers on Thursday, 16 November. Shoremen of the Red Sea have got the back of consecutive wins in Friendlies while the Pharaohs have witnessed a draw against Algeria in the last game.
Match result prediction: Egypt to win in second half
Egypt has won both of the two H2Hs against Egypt with a comfortable lead of four goals. However, they were able to score three goals in only the second half of those two meetings. Egypt have also failed to record their lead before the break in their last three fixtures. Furthermore, Djibouti has also not allowed goals at the back in the first halves of their previous two fixtures. Therefore, we expect Egypt to get stronger after the interval and register their lead for three points.
Total goals prediction: Under 3.5 goals
Egypt scored four goals in each of the two H2Hs against Djibouti. But the Pharaohs have rattled the net seven times in their last five matches at Cairo International Stadium. Nevertheless, Djibouti’s defence has been caught napping as they have conceded 14 goals in their last five fixtures on the road. On the other hand, Egypt has claimed three clean sheets in the same number of their recent home fixtures. Given these statistics, we predict a capped total of three goals in this eagerly anticipated match.
Correct score prediction: 3-0 to Egypt
Egypt have scored more than once in only one of their last five home and away fixtures. However, Djibouti’s defence adds favour to them as Shoremen have conceded three or more goals in two of their recent four games. On the other hand, Egypt have restricted their rivals from scoring in three of the last five games. The Pharaohs have also claimed successive clean sheets in two H2Hs against Djibouti. Following these numbers, we predict a 3-0 lead for Egypt in this encounter.
Egypt vs Djibouti: form, recent games, and news
After getting down to ten men with Mohamed Hany’s red card against Algeria, the Pharaohs were limited to a 1-1 home draw. Hamdi Fathi gave Egypt the lead in the 26th minute but Islam Slimani notched a stoppage-time equaliser for Algeria. The team’s preparation is slightly affected by an injury-related absence of Ahmed Samy.
After losing their position in the African Nations Championship against Sudan, Djibouti managed two successive victories in Friendlies. Shoremen of the Red Sea faced Pakistan in the last game and defeated them with a 3-1 lead. The team has an ideal preparation as they prepare to fight for their place in the mega event.
