Uganda News and Form

Uganda are in a fairly strong place at the moment. They have lost just one of their last twelve fixtures. A large part of that relative success is down to how well they have done defensively. Given that they don’t look to possess a big attacking threat, their defence is vitally important to them. Uganda have taken four clean sheets in their last six games. Just two of their last twelve games have gone over 2.5 goals so this isn’t likely to be a high scoring affair.

Uganda beat the DR Congo 2-0 in their opening match, but couldn’t hold onto a lead against Zimbabwe. They had to settle for a 1-1 draw in that second game. Emmanuel Okwi has two of their three goals at the tournament so far. Uganda have been second best in the possession percentages in both games so far. That will probably be the case in this one. This is just their second appearance in the Africa Cup of Nations since finishing as runners up in 1978, so to have a shot at winning the group is a great position. If they hold out for a draw, that gets them a guaranteed top two finished. The worst-case scenario is that they drop to third and wait to see if they would go through as one of the best third-placed teams.

Egypt News and Form

Egypt are the hosts of the tournament and they started with a 1-0 win over Zimbabwe. Then it was a 2-0 success over the DR Congo. The Egyptians are currently on a four-match winning streak currently, losing just one of their last nine played (W7 D1 L1). They have home support on their side, the star power of Mo Salah and they are the tournament favourites. Liverpool’s Salah scored Egypt’s second goal against DR Congo. Will they go full force at this game or take a chance to rest players?

This does look as if it will be a low scoring game as Egypt have three clean sheets in their last four games. Both teams have scored in just one of their last five games. If they lose this game they would end up in second place and would face another group runner up in the round of sixteen. Winning the group would give them an easier tie against one of the best third-placed teams in the next round. They are favourites to collect the match win.

Uganda v Egypt Predictions

Egypt to win: Even though Uganda appear to be a tough side to knock down, Egypt on home soil should be winning a game like this. There’s probably a temptation to go out, get an early goal and then relax. Egypt to win.
