The Belgium vs. Egypt match will be played on Wednesday, June 6, at the Roi Baudouin Stadium, Brussels. This is the international friendly football match.
These teams played two games so far. Interestingly, Egypt won both, 4:0 in 2005 and 1:0 in 1999. Both games were of friendly character.
Belgium qualified for World Cup in Russia with ease, after they drawn only one and won nine games in qualifying group H. Greece came second with nine points less, while Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Cyprus and Gibraltar finished behind them. During the qualifying cycle, Belgium was very efficient, especially against the weakest national teams, Gibraltar and Estonia. They scored six, eight and nine goals in the matches against them! In four of their last six games, Belgium scored at least three goals, so we may expect similar mindset against Egypt as well.
Latest matches: Belgium
Egypt qualified for World Cup for the first time since 1990, and they will try to reach the knockout stage for the first time in their history! They will be led by Mohamed Salah, who had a sensational season with Liverpool. However, he picked up a shoulder injury in the Champions League final against Real Madrid and he will likely miss the first match in the tournament. Their success will rely on Salah's health, there is no doubt about it.
Latest matches: Egypt
Belgium is the favorite to win this match and we expect to see more than 2.5 goals scored.
