National Bank of Egypt (7th)
Last five matches: DWWLL
The visitors stumbled on another defeat against Pyramids FC to make it back-to-back defeats. They are 7th on the log with thirty-seven points in twenty-seven games.
They played some pleasant football against the Pyramids and created many chances but couldn't utilise any of their opportunities. It will be unfortunate for them if they keep losing like this, having gone nine games without defeat a couple of weeks ago. The loss against Pyramids on matchday 26 further exposed their vulnerability at the back, and if care isn't taken, that might be the beginning of their losing streak.
National Bank of Egypt have won six, drawn three and lost four in the last thirteen home matches.
El Gouna (14th)
Last five matches: DDWLL
After going three matches without defeat, El Gouna have now recorded back-to-back losses. The previous three unbeaten matches included a solid (0-0) draw against Al Ahly and a (2-2) draw against ENPPI, followed by a (2-1) win over a robust El Gaish. However, the defeats against Al Ahly (2-0) and the most recent one against Ismaily show they are humans after all. Considering their fixtures, they have a slim chance of surviving this season; nonetheless, a win here could skyrocket them out of the relegation zone.
They have won three, drawn twice and lost eight matches in the last thirteen away games.
