Olympic Football Preview
Australia still have a good chance of reaching the next round of the Olympic Games, despite having suffered one defeat in their opening two games. Their defeat came in their last outing, as they were beaten late on by Spain. The victory was enough to open their account for the tournament, but defeat for Australia means that they will need to wait a while longer to book their passage through to the next round of the competition. Australia did get off to the perfect start in the group, as they beat Argentina in their opening group game. The three points that they currently have in enough to see them sit second in the group, but there is very little room for error in their last group game against Egypt this week. Defeat could open the door for Argentina to steal the second spot.
It has been a disappointing campaign at the Olympics to this point for Egypt, but they still have a slight chance of reaching the next round. For that to happen, they will need to beat Australia, and hope that Spain beat Argentina in their final group game. Stranger things have happened, but Egypt will need to put in their best performance of the competition so far to have any chance of reaching the next round. Egypt were strong defensively when taking a point in their first group game against Spain, but they were beaten in their most recent outing by Argentina. A win is the only result that would keep their hopes alive this week.
Australia vs Egypt Head to Head
Australia’s only win against Egypt came back in 1987, as they won on penalties against their rivals in the Presidents Cup following a 0-0 draw. The most recent match between the nations was an international friendly in November 2010, with Egypt running out comfortable 3-0 winners.
Australia vs Egypt Prediction
Australia are yet to beat Egypt in normal time. However, they have produced strong performances in each of the two games that they have played in the Olympics to this point, and should come into the final group game in good confidence. Regardless, we believe that a draw could be the most likely result.
