Egypt – D.R. Congo : Preview & Prediction
Egypt, host country of this CAN, will be the flagship nation of this competition and the logical favorite to the final coronation. The Pharaohs started the African Cup of Nations very well, since the Salah band beat Zimbabwe (1-0) last Friday without being fantastic. Egypt has just posted a third win in a row after two previous games against Tanzania (1-0) and Guinea (3-1) in friendly matches. The Congo was surprised by Uganda (0-2) on the first day and is already back on the wall before facing Egypt. The selection of Ibenge has the pressure of the result since a new underperformance would jeopardize any chances of qualification. The DR Congo had drawn 2 draws before the start of this CAN against Burkina Faso (0-0) and Kenya (1-1) in its last two friendlies.
