Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Despite being regarded as underdogs in the opening match of their 2021 AFCON qualifying campaign, Comoros did remarkably well to beat Toto at Stade de Kegue on Thursday afternoon. Les Coelacantes are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Egypt, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. One of the men to watch in the home side will be Crvena Zvezda ace El Fardou Ben, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Egypt, who dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Kenya, are still without injured Premier League star Mohamed Salah, and we believe that the Liverpool man will be sorely missed against Comoros. A close encounter is on the cards, and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Monday’s qualifier. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match.

Highlighted Team (Egypt):
Egypt are an African football team that plays their home games at Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria. Over the years Egypt have established themselves as the most successful national team in Africa and you should bear in mind that they won their seventh African Cup of Nations trophy in 2010.
The Pharaohs participated at the World Cup finals on two occasions (1934 and 1990) and they failed to make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament. Egypt suffered a 4-2 loss to Hungary on their World Cup debut and it has to be noted that the African team scored no more than one goal at the 1990 FIFA World Cup.
