Egypt are unbeaten in their opening two qualifying games this year, starting their campaign with a 1-0 win over Angola, and last time out earning a point away against Gabon.

Libya can achieve their aim of reaching the World Cup this month.

Libya heading into the final two qualifiers in November.

Clemente's team continued their 100% record at the beginning of this qualifying campaign last time out when they travelled to the Estadio 11 de Novembro to face Angola, and they came away with a 1-0 win thanks to a 43rd-minute strike from Omar Al Khoja.

Libya are bidding to make it to their first-ever World Cup finals and they have put themselves into a strong position to do so, but Egypt will want to find redemption after their last World Cup appearance in 2018, when they lost all three group games in Russia.

Friday's meeting is the first time Libya have faced Egypt since 2016, and it will be interesting to see how the home side perform under their new manager, which could be a decisive factor towards the conclusion of this qualifying group.
