Betting Odds for the match
Egypt to win convincingly
There is a gulf in class between the teams. Egypt are one of the African giants while Sierra Leone are minnows in African and world football. The Pharoes are stronger in every department.
In terms of form, Egypt have lost just one out of their last 11 games which was a 3-1 loss to Tunisia in Egypt. In addition to that, they have won nine out of those games while they also played out to a 1-1 draw against fellow African heavyweights Algeria in their last game.
By contrast, Sierra Leone have won just one out of their last four games. They also do not play top continental sides as often as Egypt. However, the Leone Stars can take heart from the fact that they gave Nigeria a run for their money in their last game against top African opposition, losing 3-2 against the Super Eagles in an African Cup of Nations qualifier in June.
Mohamed Salah to score
Salah will be full of confidence in this game. He has been red-hot for Liverpool so far this season and has so far scored 12 goals from 16 games for his club. The Sierra Leone defence will struggle to cope with the technical prowess of the 31-year-old.
If Salah is on his feet and remains composed in front of goal, there is a strong chance that he will score a goal or two in this game.
Osman Kakay to be carded
The Queens Park Rangers defender is likely to be a crucial part of the Sierra Leonian defence. He will have his work cut out in the game as he will have to cope with the threat of the likes of Salah, Trezeguet, Mohamed Sherif, Mohamed El-Neny and Emam Ashour.
Kakay has already picked up three yellow cards this season for Rangers who are currently languishing in second last position on the Championship standings. He tends to commit fouls under pressure as he has been constantly for the poor performing Rangers side this season.
Egypt will heap the pressure on Kakay in this game. He will be tested and for this reason, there is a strong chance that he will pick up a booking under pressure.
