Egypt come into this match with a brilliant run of seven wins in the recent 10 qualification matches for the World Cup. The team are also unbeaten in the last four games on the road. After the demoralising loss against Libya, Gabon will be licking their wounds. The team has suffered a defeat in three consecutive qualification matches at home.
Total goals over 2.5
The two goals conceded late in the match against Libya will add further pressure on Gabon’s defence, which has managed just one clean sheet in the last five matches. Egypt lacked the goalscoring threat against Angola and they were able to score just once in the absence of players like Salah. This will once again be the problem but Gabon’s defensive leaks will aid in a high scoring game.
Both teams to score
Gabon’s defence has kept a clean sheet only against Congo in the last seven encounters across all competitions. In fact, Congo are the only team not to score against Gabon since 2020. Egypt might be low on offensive strength due to the lack of Salah, but a leaky defence from Gabon should make it goals at both ends. Egypt might have kept back-to-back clean sheets, but Gabon could score with the aid of better home form.
Gabon vs Egypt: Team News and Match Preview
Gabon are going up against a 100% record held by Egypt even if the two teams have not met each other on a lot of occasions. Gabon will be hoping that star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is able to come to fore. There are no injury worries for Gabon coming into the game.
Egypt’s impressive record in the World Cup qualification matches will be a mountain to climb for opposition like Gabon, who are in a poor patch of form. Egypt are currently unbeaten in nine matches and they are a strong outfit even without Salah in the ranks.
