Match of the day – Egypt – DR Congo – 26.June.2019
Egypt – DR Congo
Egypt was privileged this year to host the Africa Cup, and in the second round of the group stage hosts will receive a visit from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Egyptian team holds the record of the most trophies won, and this history forces Javier Aguirre to give fans a spectacular victory today. Cairo International Stadium expects more than 50,000 Egyptians to put tremendous pressure on the Congolese team.
Egypt has not lost on its own field since January 2016 when it suffered a surprising lost against Jordan. The current component of the Egyptian nation includes Mohamed Salah, Mohamed Elneny, Ahmed Hegazy and captain Ahmed Elmohamady. And the Congo team has some important footballers including Cedric Bakambu, Yannick Bolasie, Chancel Mbemba or Christian Luyindama.
In addition to the public’s contribution, it will be a great deal to count on the experience of the Egyptian team, a squad that participated in the World Cup in 2018 and reached the final of the last African Cup. The most recent direct match between the two teams was a friendly match in 2012 that ended with a score of 0-0. Today we will have a much more spectacular duel because the stake of the game is more important and a 1.40 win of the Egyptians is the most predictive for those who want to bet.
