Egypt are the current AFCON Qualifiers Group G leaders with two games to go and need only a draw in this game to confirm qualification. They drew 1-1 at home with Kenya in the first leg and would take a similar result again.
Kenya’s slim chances of qualifying will depend on winning here first and hoping other results in the group will favor them. They are yet to register a win after the first 4 matches.

With three draws and a loss in their first four group matches, Kenya are all but out in this group. They have to win their two remaining matches and hope that Egypt and Comoros, both on 8 points, lose their remaining matches respectively. After registering a valuable away point against Egypt in their first match, Kenya could only take two points from its home games against Togo and Comoros before losing to the latter away. The big news in the Kenya camp is that the new coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulei did not call-up long-serving captain Victor Wanyama, formerly of Tottenham Hotspur and now with Montreal Impact. Nevertheless, high-flying striker Michael Olunga is available and will be the main man expected to get the goals.
The Pharaohs are in high spirits going into this match. They want to finish the qualification business early by getting a result in this game. Egypt have brought their full strength squad, including Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Mohamed Elneny of Arsenal. Egypt are unbeaten and top of the group with 8 points after two wins and two draws. All they have to do here is to avoid a loss and they will be through while Kenya’s hopes will be over. From all indications, it seems they will get their wish and it would be no surprise if they do it in style with an emphatic win.
Kenya have dropped or are missing several regular starters due to injury. They have a new coach who is trying to build a new team and has given many local players a chance. This is a must-win game for them if they are to remain in the race for qualification. They will be inspired by their two wins in the last two games, albeit friendly matches against South Sudan and Tanzania.
Egypt look strong on paper and should not have any trouble getting the result here. Nevertheless, they will keep in mind that Kenya nearly stole a win in Egypt and have the potential to get the win at home. Egypt’s squad selection is a testament to the seriousness with which they are taking this match.
