Guinea vs Egypt Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Guinea vs Egypt is a direct battle for the top of the group. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
The matches between Guinea and Egypt typically have huge scorelines and we expect the same here. Of course, there is a chance that this game will be very defensive as it is important. But based on the h2h games, four of the last five ended with both teams scoring goals. Egypt are back to their top form and will definitely score goals as the visitors here. These two national teams have played nine games in history and eight out of those nine had both teams scoring at least once.
Match Result Prediction: Egypt to Win
Guinea will have their chances but we think that Egypt are on another level and will utilize more of their opportunities. Guinea have not won against Egypt since 1976 although the teams have been playing a lot of games in recent years. This is a direct clash for the top of the group and the winner here will also win this stage.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Egypt
Egypt have a clear advantage here but we do not think that this will be an easy match. The first game of these qualifiers was very close and Egypt barely won it. When we compare the Guinea vs Egypt line ups, the visiting national team is one of the strongest in Africa, with names like Mohammed Salah, who are world-class footballers.
Guinea vs Egypt Team Previews
Guinea do not have a bad national team for such a small football nation and right now, there are several players that perform at a high level in Europe. Among them are Keita, Guilavogui, Diawara, and others. Their chances against Egypt are low but this is a squad that is capable of scoring goals.
Naturally, when you think about the Egyptian national team, you think of Mohammed Salah. The striker has become one of the greatest strikers to ever do it and his form remains good. He scores in most of Egypt's games and we can definitely expect a goal here from him. The squad, in general, is much better than that of Guinea.
