Egypt vs DR Congo − Match preview

Both Egypt and DR Congo got their AFCON 2019 campaign off to an underwhelming start. The Pharoahs weren’t entirely convincing against Zimbabwe last week, scraping a 1-0 win thanks to a lovely strike from Mahmoud Trezeguet.

Things went much worse for The Leopards though. They went down 2-0 at the hands of Uganda, and need a win tonight to stand a chance of progressing to the knockout rounds.

With the likes of Arthur Masuaku, Chancel Mbemba, Youssouf Mulumbu and Britt Assombalanga at their disposal, DR Congo absolutely have the talent to make their mark in Cairo.
