The Pharaohs will win the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 in front of their own audience. At least that’s the unanimous opinion of the bookmakers, who have chosen the hosts as title favorites. Quite sure, we would not be there because the competition is extremely strong this year. Nevertheless, the Egyptians have already made it into the round of 16 after two matchdays.
But now the Egyptians also want to bag the group victory. On Sunday, at least one point has to come from this in the last preliminary round match against Uganda. The doubt is rather small that something could go wrong with this endeavor.
Football Betting Tips Egypt vs Uganda
The team of Javier Aguirre leads the group A classification after six games with six points. However, one can not say so far that the pharaohs had kindled a fireworks display. So far the horse did not jump higher than it had to. Uganda is in second place and if we like it, the group finale will be the top game. The Ugandans must win in order to pass the Egyptians. However, we think that in the duel between Egypt and Uganda, a first prediction on the home side should be no alternative. Whether the cranes will once again put everything into this game, will show, because with four points, at least one of the four best third places should jump out, enough for the move into the knockout stages.
The Egyptians, on the other hand, will have to accelerate in front of their own audiences, but whether the Pharaohs will tackle any duel with the utmost tenacity, we also dare to doubt. Therefore, it could well lead to the record winner at the African Cup on the last matchday still points. With a draw both teams could live well. We can imagine putting a tip on a draw. The Pharaohs would be group winners, Uganda would come second and everyone would be helped. Körner could also save both teams moreover.
Egypt – Statistics & Current Form
At the Africa Cup, there is hardly a game in which once more than 10,000 spectators come to the stadium. Partly, the matches are played in front of 2,000 battlers, so to speak, to the exclusion of the public. On Sunday, however, is again a holiday, because when the Egyptians have to go on the lawn, then some 74,000 fans in the Cairo International Stadium are expected. The previous performances of the pharaohs were still significantly expandable. Four wins have the series of Javier Aguirre brought in series.
Playful but it is not really good. Therefore, in the home there are some criticisms of the defensive style of play, which has prescribed the Mexican coach of his team. The success gives him but right so far. Nevertheless, a little more spectacle would be desirable. Even superstar Mo Salah did not get much. Maybe he will pick up the crucial actions for the playoffs. Nevertheless, one has to say that the results do not give much reason to complain. Also in the game between Egypt and Uganda significantly lower odds are offered for a victory of the Pharaohs.
Against Zimbabwe, there was initially the expected heavy opening game, which could decide for Egypt 1-0. Last Wednesday, the team of Javier Aguirre and the Congo were struggling. After all, the Egyptians were hard to beat in terms of effectiveness. Ahmed El Mohamady and Mohamed Salah made for a 2-0 lead before the break. The DR Congo made the overall slightly better team, but in the end it was 2-0 for the hosts. In retrospect, Javier Aguirre was happy to have taken the win and moved into the first knockout round prematurely.
“We are glad that we are already one round ahead, but we are also ready for the game against Uganda.” – Javier Aguirre
But that does not mean that he is now ordering his team to rest. He makes it clear that his players will be ready for the match against Uganda. We think it is possible that the Egyptians will see a slightly larger rotation. Still, the coach can not look in the cards. He is unlikely to miss Mo Salah. The fans are called to see their idol in their homeland. As a figurehead of the entire Egyptian football, the bank should hardly come into question for the Liverpooler. Also out of the party is Amr Warda, who was kicked out of the national team by the Egyptian Association for sexual harassment.
Expected formation of Egypt:
↪ El Shenawy – Ashraf, Mansour, Hegazy, El Mohamady – Dunga, Hamed – Soliman, Said, Salah – Hassan
↪ Coach: Aguirre

Uganda – Statistics & Current Form
For us, Uganda has so far been the positive surprise of this Africa Cup of Nations 2019. If we take a look at the squad, then it was actually planned in a group with Egypt, Zimbabwe and the DR Congo fourth place. Now the cranes already stand with one leg in the second round. Obviously, Frenchman Sebastien Desabre does an excellent job as coach of this team. Once again, it’s a sign that you can build a working team without big stars.
Already in the qualification, the Ugandans were pleasantly surprised and the good development now seems to continue in Egypt. Nevertheless, the cranes go into this encounter as great outsiders. Before the duel between Egypt and Uganda, experts predict no victory for Black Africans. After all, the Ugandans are now unbeaten in three games and have been defeated in the preparation of Ivory Coast.
In the first game at the African Cup, the Ugandans could convince against the DR Congo and took away three important points in the 2-0 victory. One would like to have refilled also against Zimbabwe. However, the batteries were not completely filled and so you had to be satisfied with a 1-1 draw. Already after twelve minutes, Emmanuel Okwi put the Kraniche 1-0 in the lead.
“I am very proud of my players. I love being in Egypt. I like this country. We are looking forward to the game against the Egyptians, but we are thinking primarily of our team. ” – Sebastien Desabre
Zimbabwe was able to compensate just before the break and as the game progressed, it became clear that the Ugandans were getting more and more on the gums. The point could be brought home with a show of strength. Coach Sebastien Desabre was then very proud of his team and is looking forward to the match against Egypt. Full house and great atmosphere are guaranteed.
But the coach also made it clear that he will be less concerned with the opponent and rather with his own team. In a duel with the hosts, the coach hopes that Murushid Juuko will be operational again. The center-back would give the four-chain more stability, which could be crucial against the pharaohs.

↪ Onyango – Walusimbi, Mukibi, Wasswa, Mugabi – Azira, Aucho – Okwi, Miya, Abdu – Kaddu
↪ Coach: Desabre
