The Pharaohs will be gutted not to have won the AFCON trophy as they were beaten by the Lions of Teranga in the final at Paul Biya Stadium two months ago.
Their primary tactic is to always prevent the opponent from scoring in the 90 minutes, buy more time and overwhelm them in the extra minutes, unfortunately, it didn't work out for them against Senegal as they were defeated on penalties in the final.
They are halfway to Qatar after a 1-0 win in Cairo, Mohammed Salah's deflected shot was enough to give the visitors the edge over the home team.

EXPERT BETTING TIPS
Before last week, Senegal have defeated the away team three times in a row with Egypt not scoring in any of those ties.
The first leg was a bit unfortunate for Senegal, despite playing away from home, they still managed to control the game more than the home team.
Any side that has Mohammed Salah will be dangerous regardless of who they are playing against but we believe if Egypt can Win in Cairo then Senegal should be able to do so in front of their home fans, nevertheless bet on Senegal to qualify for 2.76.
Bookies believe there won't be many goals here but we think otherwise, we believe they can still manage to deliver over 1.5 for 1.72.
Bet on Senegal to win for 1.86.
