DR Congo also drew their three group games to seal second place, as they qualified in behind Morocco in Group B, and claimed a 1-1 stalemate against the 2022 FIFA World Cup semifinalists.

Their starting line up is sprinkled with unexpected former Premier League names including Arthur Masuaku and Chancel Mbemba alongside current Brentford striker Yoane Wissa.

DR Congo (4-2-3-1 right to left): Mpasi (GK) — Kalulu, Mbemba, Batubinsika, Masuaku — Moutoussamy, Pickel — Bongonda, Kakuta, Wissa — Bakambu.

Egypt vs DR Congo prediction

Salah’s absence continues to be the dominant theme for Egypt and without him they have lost their key weapon to win tight games.

DR Congo have an identical run of form in the tournament but they have more firepower with Wissa and veteran Cedric Bakambu.

Prediction: Egypt 0-1 DR Congo
