Egypt vs D.R. Congo Match Preview and Prediction
Egypt vs D.R. Congo: Egypt’s focus will now turn to the knockout stages, where they will play DR Congo in a round of 16 encounters at Stade Laurent Pokou in an effort to qualify for this year’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) quarterfinals.
Egypt qualified for the competition with three draws from their three group matches, which was good enough to place them second in Group B behind Cape Verde.
Mohamed Salah, the Pharaohs’ talisman, would still be out of the game after suffering an injury in the first half against Ghana. Despite their struggles on the other end of the field, Rui Vitoria’s club has nevertheless shared the attacking load with their attacking star.
But Egypt would be in considerably higher spirits, having won four of their previous eight games and going undefeated. Their rivals, DR Congo, finished second in Group F, behind Morocco, after three straight draws in the group stage.
Les Leopards would be conscious of the fact that, despite their three draws, they have now lost their last six games. The fact that Sebastien Desabre’s squad has lost three games and won just one since September of last year raises concerns as well. They have played ten games.
