Egypt v Senegal Prediction

In what will be a carbon copy of the Africa Cup of Nations final from earlier this year, Egypt will play against Senegal once more as the two countries battle it out for a place at Qatar 2022 following on from

The groups at the Africa side of qualification for the World Cup are split into 10 groups, for which all 10 second round group winners play home-and-away over two legs against a different nation. The five winners qualify for the World Cup, and with their most recent Africa Cup of Nations final ending in a 0-0 draw and needing penalties, this two-legged tie could go either way with the game all but 50/50 in regards to picking a winner.

In the Africa Cup of Nations back in February, Senegal did edge past Egypt via a penalty shootout, and in reality, Sadio Mane and co. were the best side of the tournament and thoroughly deserved their winners' medals at the end of the competition.

Here though, both sides come into the World Cup qualification clash in very similar form from their group stages. In Group F, Egypt won four times, drawn twice and failed to lose a single game as they eased past Gabon, Libya, and Angola. Senegal won one extra game and drew one less fixture too, while also going unbeaten and finishing eight points lear of second-placed Togo, and way clear of Congo and Namibia.

Egypt team news

Mohamed El Shenawy will look to get cap number 40 when he plays in goal against Senegal here, as Ayman Ashraf, Omar Gaber, Mahmoud El Wensh and Mahmoud Alaa all play in defence. Mohamed Elneny is the country's msot capped player in the current setup with 90 caps, and he will play along with Amr El Solia, Hamdy Fathy and Mohamed Magdy. Star man and one of the world's very best right now, Mohamed Salah, will get cap number 83 here and look to score goal number 48 as well. Trezeguet will also play, while Zizo likely comes into the side as well.

Senegal team news

Oddly enough, Chelsea hero, Édouard Mendy, has just 21 caps at 30 years of age as he burst onto the scene way later than most, and he should play again here. Similarly, Kalidou Koulibaly has just 58 caps at 30 despite years of excellence for him, and he should play alongside Youssouf Sabaly and Saliou Ciss. Idrissa Gueye and Cheikhou Kouyate will also play here, as Nampalys Mendy gets some game time too. Star player, Sadio Mane should play here to and he will be in search of goal number 30 for Senegal. Expect Watford man, Ismailia Sarr, too.
