Baladiyat El Mahalla will be hoping to distance themselves from the danger zone when they welcome bottom-placed National Bank Egypt at Ghazl El Mahalla Stadium on Monday.

After a 16-year absence, Baladiyat El Mahalla has finally made a comeback to the elite stage of Egyptian football, securing direct promotion by clinching the title in Group C of the second division. The main priority for Ramadan El Sayed and his boys will be to avoid a return to the lower tier and, judging by the current results, they are ready to give the last atom of strength to preserve the status of the highest league in the land of the pyramids. Hovering just three points above the bottom three, BMH will need to turn their draws into victories, given that they've shared points in half of their opening eight matches, with two wins and as many losses.

On the flip side, National Bank of Egypt has utterly faltered this season, and their top-flight status could be in serious jeopardy unless they find a solution to curb their string of failures, considering they've suffered a whopping eight defeats in the opening nine matches. Following two back-to-back calm league campaigns, it looks like the club from the Egyptian capital is heading into a gritty fight for survival, particularly as the only points they've collected came from a dominant 4-0 win against the third-placed Al Masry. A mere three banal points out of a potential 27 have left NBE firmly rooted at the base of the Egyptian Premier League standings, lagging behind by four points from the safety zone.

Baladiyat El Mahalla vs National Bank of Egypt Betting Tips: BTTS

Considering both sides will be weighing their chances of success, and given that their defenses have been the weak link this season, we believe there's a realistic chance for both nets to ripple at least once in Monday's thrilling clash. Baladiyat's offense, though lethal in front of the opponent's goal with 12 goals scored, is unable to fully compensate for all the shortcomings the defense delivers, as they have conceded an alarming two or more goals in six of the past seven league actions. This combination, a potent attack and a vulnerable defense, makes them an exceptionally entertaining team to watch, as El Sayed's boys have simultaneously scored and conceded 2+ goals in four of their last six top-flight matches. As for the visitors, they undeniably stand as the biggest letdown in the Egyptian Premier League, with the primary cause of their disastrous season start attributed to an exceptionally undisciplined defensive organization, managing to keep a clean sheet only once in the opening nine rounds.

Given the vulnerability of both sides at the back, coupled with their depth in the final third, we believe Baladiyat and NBE will both find a way to get on the scoresheet come Monday afternoon.

Baladiyat El Mahalla team news

Youssef Hassan, the standard midfielder for Baladiyat El Mahalla, is rejoining the squad for Monday's contest after sitting out a one-match suspension.

After missing the dramatic 2-2 draw against Pyramids for unknown reasons, defender Mohamed Razak remains uncertain, as does Kahraba, who tasted the bittersweet on his debut, providing an assist for his teammate to equalize in the first half before leaving the field late in the second half due to a minor injury.

Regarding the Bankers, midfielder Mohamed Fathi is ruled out due to injury, having sustained an injury in the seventh minute of the previous match against El Gounah, forcing him to exit the game early, and it seems improbable for him to participate in the upcoming fixtures.

28-year-old playmaker Mohamed Helal is finally nearing a return to action as his doping ban runs until January 4, and there's no doubt that his comeback will come in handy as he has been one of the keys to preserving NBE's top-flight status.
