Guinea vs Egypt Preview

Guinea host Egypt in their fifth match of the qualifying round of the Africa Cup of Nations. As the CAF didn’t register any of Guinea’s stadiums, this match will be played at a neutral venue in Marrakech with Guinea acting as hosts. Kaba Diawara’s side currently sits second in the table, level on points with Egypt – only second to them on goal difference. With a comfortable 6 point lead over Malawi and Ethiopia, and with just 2 matches remaining per team in the group, Guinea will be confident of a top 2 finish and qualification from group D. They played their last two matches against Ethiopia, winning both with scores of 2-0 and 3-2. The Guineans however are winless against Egypt since 1976 and it would take something miraculous by Kaba Diawara’s men to overcome the mighty Egyptians led by Mo Salah.

The visitors Egypt on the other hand have had a miserable period recently, having failed to qualify for the World Cup. However, the finalists of the previous edition of the Cup of Nations will be hoping to start afresh. Rui Vitoria’s men currently sit on top of the table, having scored the most number of goals and having conceded the least as well. The also come into this game on a rich vein of form, having won each of their last 5 matches, conceding just once across these matches and having scored at least 2 goals in each game. Their most recent qualification wins came against Malawi, winning 6-0 on aggregate across the two matches. They also have a phenomenal record against the hosts Guinea, stretching back to almost five decades. They also registered a 1-0 victory against the Guineans in the reverse fixture and a mere point on Wednesday night will be enough for the Egyptians to qualify. Egypt have looked like a revived force since the appointment of Rui Vitoria, having won all five games under the Portuguese and having scored 14 goals in this period – and with Guinea battling for consistency, this matchup should be a comfortable one for the Egyptians, at least on paper.
