Al Masry to win
13th versus 14th, both teams are not exactly enjoying their best season so far; El Gouna have just six wins in 20 league games, while Al Masry have managed just four wins this season. It's worth noting that both teams have not won many games lately; as El Gouna won just one of their last six games, while Al Masry have one win in their last 10 games. However, Al Masry have had the advantage in clashes between these teams; they are unbeaten in their last four encounters with El Gouna, with three wins and a draw. Considering El Gouna lost four of their last five road games, we believe that Al Masry will take all the points here.
Goals will struggle to flow
These teams have met a lot of times, and those encounters usually don't produce lots of goals; as a matter of fact, eight of the last 10 meetings between these teams saw less than three goals scored. In the same vein, El Gouna scored just one goal in their last three games, whilst conceding one goal in that stretch; all of their last three games went under 1.5. With this in mind, this should be a low-scoring game.
