The African Cup of Nations 2019 hosts stuttered to a 1-0 win in their opening match against Zimbabwe, but they will know they need to improve their performances as the tournament goes on. They have a rich history in this competition, winning it seven times, and with Mo Salah in their ranks and home advantage, they could be the team to bet on once again this summer.
Trezeguet got the important goal against Zimbabwe in their first match in a match where they restricted Zimbabwe to just one shot on target.
Mohamed Elneny is one of the Premier League players in the Egypt squad along with Salah.
Congo DR kicked off their tournament with a disappointing 2-0 loss against Uganda and that has piled on the pressure for this game. Before the tournament they played two friendlies against Nigeria and Tanzania, drawing them both but only scoring once and goalscoring is where they will likely fall down tonight. That’s why the first of our Egypt vs Congo DR predictions is for Egypt to win the match 2-0. The odds for this are 9/2 at Coral.
Congo’s most well known player to UK readers will be Britt Assombalonga, however he started on the bench in their opening match. He should be in from the start for this game given the scoring troubles his nation are having.
It is hard to predict anything other than an Egypt victory in tonight’s match, but at odds of 1/2 there isn’t must value in this unless you’re adding them to an accumulator. With that in mind, a bet on Egypt to win to nil has been placed as our NAP of the day. This would have won in Egypt’s first match of AFCON 2019 and also if you were betting against Congo, as we are here, in their opening game.
Congo have failed to score in two of their last three matches now and it is very rare they get goals. In fact, They haven’t scored more than one goal in any of their last 10 fixtures. Egypt have won two of their last three matches to nil and that’s the reason for our main Egypt vs Congo DR betting tip tonight.
