Egypt have not been at their fluent best but have dominated Sudan in previous encounters. I can see goals here for Salah who has been in stunning club form this season.

Egypt vs Sudan Preview & Tips


Egypt recently thrashed Sudan 5-0 and a similar result will see the Pharaohs qualify for the last 16. While Sudan have proven themselves capable defensively, they are going to find containing Mohamed Salah difficult. My best bet is a win to nil.

  • Egypt have seen BTTS No in 6 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Egypt have won 8 of their last 13 matches (all competitions).
  • Egypt have won 3 of their last 4 matches against Sudan to nil (all competitions).

Head to Head


Egypt lead Sudan 4-0 in their four previous meetings. In those matches Egypt have scored 17 goals and conceded just one.

They last met in December last year where Egypt won 5-0.

Egypt Form


Egypt beat Lebanon, Sudan and Jordan on their way to the Arab Cup semi-final prior to the 2022 AFCON. They lost the semi-final to Tunisia and then lost on penalties to Qatar in the 3rd/4th place playoff.

The Pharaohs suffered defeat in their opening AFCON match 1-0 to Nigeria which put huge pressure on them going into the second match.

In a tight contest against Guinea-Bissau, Egypt eventually took one of their chances through Mohamed Salah in the 69th minute. From there they held on for a hard earned 1-0 win.

Egypt Team News


Aston Villa’s winger Trezeguet was dropped by Carlos Queiroz in the last match. He is likely to get a recall.

Sudan Form


Sudan are a stubborn side defensively but they are on a 13-match winless run.

Their best chance of progression was victory in the opening match against Guinea-Bissau. Unfortunately the match ended 0-0 but victory here could propel them into second.

In their last match Sudan lost 3-1 to group leaders Nigeria. Walieldin Khedr scored Sudan’s only goal from the penalty spot when they were already 3-0 down.

Sudan Team News


Centre back Salaheldin Nemer was helped off the field against Nigeria and is likely to miss this match.

Verdict

Mohamed Salah scored in the last match and is backed to score the first goal of the match against Sudan. My best bet is for Egypt to win to nil with Sudan having failed to score in seven of their last nine matches.
