Sierra Leone vs Egypt – Best Free Predictions and Betting Tips
Sierra Leone had to settle for a goalless draw with Ethiopia in the last match. Egypt had a handsome 6-0 victory over Djibouti in the first group match.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Egypt
Egypt might have been able to pick up a big victory in the first match but they are likely to be tested to a great extent in the coming match. Sierra Leone can be very unforgiving when it comes to home matches in the World Cup qualifiers and they are unbeaten in the last seven qualifying games at home. The last defeat for Sierra Leone in the qualifiers was back in 2008 against Nigeria. Egypt might not have overcome Sierra Leone in the past two attempts but they are well equipped coming into this match.
Total Goals Prediction: Total goals over 2.5
Egypt’s opening group match might have produced over 5.5 goals but there were less than 0.5 goals in the opening game for Sierra Leone, who had a goalless draw with Ethiopia. However, both teams have plenty of offensive potential leading up to the match. Mohamed Salah will be a player to watch for Egypt after coming on the back of scoring four goals in the first group game.
BTTS Prediction: Goals from both teams – yes
These two teams have met each other on two occasions. Both of these competitive matches in the African Cup of Nations have witnessed goals at both ends. Egypt’s offence has taken a big boost following the big success over Djibouti.
Sierra Leone vs Egypt: CAF World Cup Qualifiers Division Match Preview
Sierra Leone have never been able to reach the World Cup in the past but the team has had a decent start to the group stages with a draw against Ethiopia. Sierra Leone have gone for Amidu Karim as the new coach just recently and this is likely to have a positive impact even in the upcoming match.
Egypt are looking to reach the World Cup finals following the disappointment of the 2022 edition. The team missing out on a World Cup happening closer to home was a big loss and the national team have only reached one World Cup finals since the turn of the century. However, there is plenty of reason to be positive with Rui Vitoria’s team on good form.
