Australia U23 vs Egypt U23 Prediction

Australia are slight favorites but they will be wary of the threat posed by an Egyptian side that has plenty of pace in attack.

Egypt have played conservatively throughout the tournament but their need for victory could see them become more adventurous. A draw might be enough for Australia to secure progress but we are predicting a narrow victory for the Olyroos.

Prediction: Australia U23 2-1 Egypt U23
