We’re heading to Egypt on Xmas Day, and Kev’s hoping to be handled to a goal-fest.
Top-flight conflict to entertain
Ismaily v National Bank of Egypt
Friday 25 December, 17:30
First of all, a Merry Christmas to every one. I hope Santa’s sack contained all the things you hoped it will, and that in these troublesome occasions, you are having the very best time doable.
We’re spending our Xmas Day in Egypt, as a result of Ismaily are taking over the National Bank of Egypt (the workforce, not the entire financial institution) within the Premier Division.
Ismaily have not made the very best of begins to the season, as they’ve taken simply two factors from their first three matches. A goalless stalemate at El Masry was adopted by a loopy 3-3 draw at dwelling to El Entag El Harby (Ismaily led 2-1 and 3-2) and a 2-1 defeat at El Gouna.
The National Bank have solely not too long ago been promoted (you possibly can say their inventory has risen) and so they have recorded a win, a draw and a defeat. They have scored in all three of their matches to date.
I used to be tempted to easily lay Ismaily at 1.991/1, given their poor begin to the season, however as a substitute I’ll go for Both Teams To Score at a beneficiant 2.0811/10. BTTS has landed in 12 of Ismaily’s final 13 dwelling matches within the league, and on the finish of final month, Ismaily gained a pleasant 2-1 on the similar opponents.
