Guinea-Bissau vs Egypt Preview & Tips


Guinea-Bissau have failed to score in their last five matches in all competitions. Egypt will be desperate to get a win and their quality should be enough. A win to nil for the Pharaohs is my best bet.

Head to Head


Guinea-Bissau and Egypt have never previously met.

Guinea-Bissau Form


Guinea-Bissau will need a turnaround in form if they have any hope of qualifying from this group.

The West-Africans had no friendly matches prior to the tournament which has clearly hampered their preparation. Prior to their opening AFCON fixture, Guinea-Bissau last played in the World Cup Qualifiers.  

Guinea-Bissau drew their final qualifier 0-0 and began the Africa Cup of Nations with the same scoreline against Sudan. It was a game that Bissau had to win but failed to make the few chances count.

Guinea-Bissau Team News


Guinea-Bissau should go into this match unchanged after the 0-0 draw against Sudan.

Goalkeepers: Jonas Mendes, Maurice Gomis, Manuel Mama Samba Balde.
Defenders: Nanu, Fali Cande, Sori Mane, Leonel Ucha, Simao Junior, Opa Sangatte, Jefferson Encada, Fernandy Mendy.
Midfielders: Pele, Bura, Joao Jaquite, Moreto Cassama, Alfa Semedo, Panutche Camara.
Forwards: Mama Balde, Piqueti, Jorginho, Mauro Rodrigues, Joseph Mendes, Steve Ambri, Frederic Mendy. 

Egypt Form


Egypt finished fourth in the recently completed Arab Cup albeit without their overseas-based players.

After beating Lebanon 1-0 and Sudan 5-0, they drew 1-1 with Algeria. A 3-1 win against Jordan followed before losing 1-0 to Tunisia in the semi-finals. In the 3rd place playoff, Egypt lost on penalties to Qatar following a 0-0 draw.

The Pharaohs lost their opening AFCON match 1-0 to Nigeria. They failed to take their chances in front of goal and were made to pay. Egypt cannot afford another defeat in this match. 

Egypt Team News


Coach Carlos Queiroz has selected six overseas-based players, headlined by Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and fit-again Aston Villa winger Trezeguet.

Goalkeepers: Mohamed El-Shennawy, Mohamed Sobhi, Mohamed Abogabal, Mahmoud Gad
