Cameroon vs Egypt
Cameroon had recorded a 02 win against Gambia in the Quarter Final. They had also won eight of their past nine games, and they had scored two or more goals in four of the last five matches.
They are ranked 50th in the world, and they are one of the contenders to lift the Cup of Nations. Most importantly, they are the host nation.
On the other hand, the Egyptians registered a 21 win in extra time, against the Moroccans in the Quarter. In addition, he has lost only two times in the last 26 games, five times higher than his rivals in the FIFA rankings.
Finally, in most H2H meetings over the years, both teams have scored goals.
This Thursday, the two will face each other in person, so expect both to find the other side of the net at least once. However, both sides decide to reach the final and become cautious and tenacious. It is very likely that the game will work overtime and then be penalized.
Real Sociedad vs Real Betis
Sociedad has recorded their 20th home victory over Atletico Madrid in the final round, which certainly gives them great confidence.
They are undefeated in 5 games and have scored more than 2 goals in 2 of the last 4 games.
They also lost only twice at home in all tournaments this season. These defeats were against European champions Villarreal and Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Betis defeated Seville with 21 wins in the previous Copa round. They also scored a total of 10 goals and won three games in a row.
They have also won 11 of the last 15 games and have only lost twice from home in the last three months. There was one defeat in the Europa League and one defeat against Bilbao.
After all these observations, we can expect a goal celebration between the two teams this Thursday.
Athletic Bilbao vs Real Madrid
Bilbao managed to beat Barcelona in the previous round, but the match went into overtime. Also, this was not the old Barca. The
Basque Country has not won 12 of the last 17 games and has lost 3 of the last 6 games. Note that they have also scored two or more goals in four of the last five home games.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid scored 12 wins against Elche in the previous round. They have also been undefeated in 21 of the last 22 games, 18 of which have won.
They have won 10 games in a row and scored more than 2 goals in 10 of the last 11 away trips.
Given these observations and Real Madrid's H2H advantage, it is expected to win this Thursday.
