Egypt vs South Africa Football Betting Tips
The host country of this African Cup of Nations, Egypt has perfectly met expectations by finishing in 1st place in group A. Authors of a clear fault, the Pharaohs have alternately dominated Zimbabwe (1-0 ), the Democratic Republic of Congo (2-0) and Uganda (2-0). Solid defensively, Mohamed Salah’s partners seem well prepared for this CAN.
3rd in Group E with 3 points in the bag, South Africa took the last qualifying ticket for the 8th finals. The Bafana Bafana first lost to Cote d’Ivoire (0-1) before logically taking over a weak Namibia (1-0). On the last day, they confirmed their deficiencies against the big nations by falling against Morocco (0-1).
