Ivory Coast vs Egypt 26.01.2022
Ivory Coast dominated Group E finishing top with 7 points from their 3 group games. The icing on the cake was the 3-1 victory over defending champions Algeria in the last round of matches which not ensured they topped the group but also sent the North Africans packing after they finished rock bottom of the group.
Egypt had a slow start to the tournament losing 1-0 to Nigeria on opening day. Since then, they have somewhat gotten better, winning their remaining group games by identical 1-0 scorelines but they are still far from the teams of yesteryears that dominated this tournament.
This is a heavyweight fight pitting two of AFCON giants and we, therefore, expect a closely fought encounter here particularly to start the game. As a result we fancy the game to be level at the break.
