Australia and Egypt are facing off at Hitomebore Stadium Miyagi in round 3 of Group C in the Olympics 2021 soccer tournament. Australia has won one and lost one game, however, they can still advance to the next stage. Egypt is in the last place of this group, they are still without a win, but they can still advance to the next stage with a win here.
Australia is in 2nd place right now, which is a spot that will get them to the knockouts, but Australia could still use at least 1 point here to secure that spot. In their last game against Spain, Australia has had only 27% of ball possession, 0 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, and only 66% of the correct passes. As usual, Spain has dominated in this game, and because of that Australia couldn’t create a chance. Australia has conceded a goal in the 80th minute, and they have lost this match 0-1. Wales and Tilio are the only goalscorers for Australia with 1 goal each. Australia has had a bit of luck in that game they won, but they will need a lot more of it to win this game even though Egypt is not that good.
Egypt hasn’t shown much so far in this tournament, and even though they conceded only 1 goal, they still haven’t scored a single goal yet. With only 1 point, Egypt is in the last place of this group, but with a win here, and with a favorable result in the other game, Egypt could advance to the next stage. Egypt was facing Argentina in their previous game, and they have had 47% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 73% of the correct passes. It wasn’t a bad game for Egypt, but they are struggling with scoring goals, and they ended up losing this match 0-1. The good news for Egypt is they have all of their players ready for this match, and hopefully, for them, it will be enough.
Egypt is not in good form, especially in the attacking end, and for that reason I don’t think they will win his game, but Egypt was solid defensively. I think Australia is the better team here, and while they could use a win, a draw might be enough. I don’t see a lot of goals being scored here, and I will take the under in this one.
