Amavubi will decide their Africa Nations Cup destiny this afternoon when they clash with defending and six-time African champions Egypt.
With a rich football history surrounding Egypt’s Pharoahs, Amavubi are clear underdogs but here are three reasons why I’m backing the home team to put their fading hopes back on track with victory tonight.
Key players out with injury

In modern football, home advantage is a key factor and it is no secret that Amavubi are ready to pounce on the advantage as they also seek revenge for their 3-0 first leg mauling in Cairo.
Gatete’s return to form
There is no doubt that Jimmy Gatete still stands out as one of the country’s all-time top strikers.
The 30-year-old, who has scored some very important goals for Rwanda in the past, seems to have returned to his best form after scoring in last month’s international friendly against Tanzania.
