Now, we’re set for a crucial match in which the loser could fall to last place in Group Grupo B with only one game to go towards the knockout stages.

Over/Under Pick: Over 2 (+111)

First of all, Egypt has scored at least two goals in each of its last four games in all competitions. Let’s not forget that besides Salah, the Pharaohs’ attacking unit includes Omar Marmoush, Mahmoud Hassan and Mostafa Mohamed. Salah and Mohamed were the scorers against Mozambique.

As for Ghana, the Black Stars ended up losing to Cape Verde due to a goal in stoppage time. However, they finished with 10 shots in total. In other words, they can and will put up a good fight led by Jordan Ayew and Inaki Williams. Make sure to include the over in your soccer picks as both will score.

Moneyline Pick: Egypt (Ev)

Yes, Egypt failed to defeat Mozambique, but the Pharaohs won possession with 62 percent and took 21 shots in total. In other words, they controlled the match from start to end but weren’t lucky enough. On the other hand, besides losing to Cape Verde, Ghana also lost possession and finished with fewer shots on goal. Again, the Black Stars can and will put up a good fight, but not enough to pull off the stunner. I think it’s time for them to start thinking about a complete rebuild.
