Egypt 4/7 to beat South Africa in Saturday’s African Cup of Nations clash
Competition: African Cup of Nations
Market: Egypt win
Odds: 4/7 @ Bet 365
Two nations who are looking to book their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s African Cup of Nations, Egypt will host South Africa on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a very bright campaign, this year’s hosts are one of the leading contenders to clinch the African Cup of Nations outright. Winning each of their three Group A appearances and scoring five goals on that winning run, it is also worth noting that they are yet to concede a goal in the tournament. Securing their spot in the knockout stage with a five-point buffer, Egypt are enjoying a five-match winning run across all competitions and have also now lost just one of their last 11 outings. Given their continued performances, the hosts should be confident of extending their winning run this weekend.
As for the visitors, while South Africa may have managed to secure a spot in the knockout stage, they have continued to show signs of a struggle. Losing two of their three Group D matchups and just managing to sneak through as one of the third best finishers, the Yellow and Greens have now won just one of their last six matches within 90 minutes. Also now managing to register just one goal in their last four matches across all competitions, we’re backing another tough night for South Africa on Saturday.
