Senegal vs Egypt Betting Predictions
Egypt’s victory in the first leg of the CAF World Cup Qualifiers playoffs is what you could call a perfect revenge. The Pharaohs were unlucky in the AFCON that ended a month when they lost to Senegal in penalty shootout in the tournament’s finals. Will home advantage hand Senegal the victory in this second leg? Our best predictions for the CAF WCQ playoffs are:
Under 1.5 @ 51/50 (2.02)
This second leg of the CAF World Cup qualifier playoffs can only be linked to the AFCON finals that Egypt lost in penalties. These teams have had four encounters previously and the fifth attempt will decide which side goes all the way to Qatar to participate in the FIFA World Cup later this year. In all the previous matchups, there were no goals on both ends of the pitch. Only four goals were scored in the previous four meetings. Backing another low-scoring encounter on the premise that will not be an easy game should fetch a good price with our selected bookmaker.
No goals on both sides @ 21/50 (1.42)
Another good bet in this classic encounter between Senegal and Egypt is to back no goal-goal. A tough duel that we expect in this game is mainly the reason why we have settled on this market. We equally expect these teams, especially Egypt, to play their classic way of defending and counter attacking. Backing goals on only one end or none at all should get you a price for that market with our selected bookmaker.

Senegal vs Egypt Preview, Team News and Lineups
Senegal vs Egypt will be nothing less than a classic encounter. Both teams have had the best performances in recent games. For Senegal, losing the first leg of the playoffs ended a 13-match unbeaten streak. However, there is hope and belief that the Lions of Teranga can regroup and recoup some points from the Pharaohs in this second leg of the 2022 World Cup playoffs. However, to progress to the next stage, Senegal must win by at least 2 goals but that could prove difficult against a highly defensive Egyptian side. We expect a tense game with less movement forward on the Egyptian side.
Senegal predicted lineup: Mendy, Ciss, Cisse, Koulibaly, Sarr, Kouyate, Mendy. Gueye, Sarr, Diedhiou and Mane.
Egypt predicted lineup: Shenawy, Gaber, Ibrahim, Hamdi, Fatouh, Fathi, Elneny, A-Sulaya, Salah, Mohamed and Trezequet.
