Egypt looks to earn a berth in the World Cup for just the second time since 1990 when it visits Senegal for the second leg of their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday. Mohamed Salah and the Pharaohs hosted the first leg of their third-round tie on Friday and came away with a 1-0 victory after the Senegalese won on penalty kicks in their matchup in the Africa Cup of Nations final last month. Senegal is seeking its third-ever World Cup appearance and second in a row, as both sides participated in the tournament in 2018.
Kickoff at Stade Me Abdoulaye Wade in Diamniadio, Senegal is set for 1 p.m. ET. Senegal is the -121 favorite (risk $121 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest Senegal vs. Egypt odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Egypt is the +370 underdog.

Why you should back Senegal
The Senegalese finished first in Group H and scored 15 goals, the third-most among the 40 teams that participated in the CAF second round. Famara Diedhiou leads the team with four goals, which ties him for seventh in African qualifying. The 29-year-old forward accounted for all of Senegal’s offense against Namibia in the latter of their two second-round meetings, registering a hat trick in a 3-1 triumph.
Diedhiou also has been a force in Turkey’s Super Lig this season, producing nine goals for Alanyaspor. He isn’t Senegal’s only threat, however, as Sadio Mane and Ismaila Sarr both have recorded three goals. The 29-year-old Mane shares second place in African qualifying with four assists and enters Tuesday with seven points, tying him for third in that category.
Why you should back Egypt
Salah has yet to score during African qualifying but is tied for fourth with three assists in six matches. The 29-year-old has been tearing up the English Premier League this season, his fifth with Liverpool. Salah leads the EPL with 20 goals in 27 games and is two away from matching the total he produced in 37 contests in 2020-21.
Salah also is one assist behind Liverpool teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold (11) for most assists in the Premier League. Mostafa Mohamed and Mohamed Magdy, better known by the nickname Afsha, share the lead for Egypt with two goals apiece. Midfielder Omar Marmoush also has contributed for the Pharaohs, registering a goal and an assist in three matches.
