Betting tips Egypt vs Guinea

A notoriously difficult nation to beat, this fixture looks likely to be a low-scoring one with the hosts rarely seeing more than 2 goals scored in their matches over the past couple of years.

Indeed, Egypt, currently ranked 32nd in the FIFA World Rankings have seen under 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 13 matches with under 1.5 goals scored in 10 of the last 11. Remarkably, just 7 goals were scored in those 11 most recent matches. 

Visiting Guinea, currently 80th in the FIFA standings have also seen under 2.5 goals scored in 5 of their last 6 matches while they have proven tough to beat on their travels with 8 of their last 14 away matches finishing as draws.

Recent meetings between these nations have been dominated by Egypt although intriguingly, goals have been plentiful with all 5 fixtures seeing BTTS and 4 going over 2.5 goals. Egypt won 3:1 in their most recent back in 2019.

Still, considering the Egyptian's recent profligacy in front of goal, we believe the more likely play is a narrow home win for The Pharoaos with the under 2.5 goal play looking the best betting angle for this opening AFCON qualifier in Group D.
