Egypt U23 and Argentina U23 will trade tackles on matchday two of the Tokyo Olympics 2020 men's football tournament at the Sapporo dome.

Egypt come into the game on the back of a goalless draw with Spain. The Pharoahs showed grit and determination to hold out the Europeans in a game they were outplayed in.

Argentina U23 suffered a surprise 2-0 defeat to Australia U20 on Thursday. Lachlan Wales and Marco Tilio scored in each half to condemn the two-time Olympic gold medalists to defeat.

The South Americans will be looking to bounce back from that setback with a victory against Egypt U23. Anything other than a victory could be detrimental to their chances of progressing from Group C.

Argentina's loss to Australia was unexpected but the South American giants still have qualification in their hands.

Egypt were defensively astute against Spain and another stellar rearguard action is needed if they are to get anything against Argentina. However, La Albiceleste should do enough to get the job done.

Prediction: Egypt U23 0-2 Argentina U23
