Egypt and Burkina Faso are unbeaten in the 2017 African Cup of Nations and both teams will be working hard to extend that record when they face each other in the first semi-final of the tournament.

The seven-time winners of the AFCON will be looking to make it to yet another final in order to help their cause of winning it for the record eighth time. However, Egypt will have to beat Burkina Faso to achieve that feat.

Egypt registered a narrow 1-0 win over Morocco to make it to the semi-final. So far, Hector Cuper's side have not conceded a goal in the ongoing tournament in Gabon. Burkina Faso's 2-0 victory over Tunisia was sufficient for them to seal a berth in the last four.
