Egypt opened their Group B campaign with a surprising 2-2 draw against Mozambique. The Pharaohs were forced to come from behind to grab a point after trailing 2-1 until the 97th minute when Mohamed Salah converted a penalty for the equalizer. 

Egypt have remained unbeaten in their last five matches, winning three and drawing twice. In this run of five matches, Egypt have kept three clean sheets, conceded three times, and scored 13 times. 

Their form sees them dominate football bet predictions ahead of kickoff on Thursday.

Ghana Are Looking to Bounce Back After A Shock Loss to Cape Verde in Their Opener in Group B

Ghana made a disappointing start to their AFCON tournament, losing 1-2 against Cape Verde. The Black Stars were the football pick to beat Cape Verde and make a winning start.

The sluggish start to the tournament is consistent with their pre-tournament form, where they lost 1-0 to Comoros and drew 0-0 against Namibia in the lead-up to the clash against Cape Verde. Football predictions show that Ghana will struggle against an in-form Egyptian side.

Player Focus

Expert soccer predictions show that Egypt will play on the front foot, dominate possession, and look to pressure Ghana from the outset. The Black Stars are likely to be on the defensive from early on. 

Therefore, football prediction analysis underscores this match’s attack versus defense dynamic on Thursday, with Egyptian attackers led by Mohamed Salah and Ghanaian defenders led by Djiku and Salisu playing a starring role.

Mohamed Salah

The Liverpool forward was instrumental in getting the equalizer against Mozambique and is poised to play a starring role for the Pharaohs as they look to break down a robust Ghanaian defense.

Djiku and Salisu

The two center-backs will be pivotal in dealing with Mohamed Salah and the rest of the Egyptian defense on Thursday. They will organize the defense and keep the shape of the Ghanaian side. 

Tactical Analysis

Egypt will play a more attacking brand of football based on possession and progressive passing. Ghana will mainly be pragmatic in their approach, containing the Egyptians, setting traps, and attacking on the counter.

Egypt vs. Ghana Expert Analysis

Ghana and Egypt will adopt variants of 4-3-3 formation. Egypt’s shape will be expansive, focusing on passing the ball with rhythm and creating overloads. Ghana’s shape will be compact and narrow to stifle the middle of the pack, set traps, and attack on the counter through the middle.
