Egypt v Uruguay World Cup betting guide

Posted on: 5th May 2018

[odds sport=”football” league=”world-cup” event=”egypt-vs-uruguay”]

We’re not too excited by the prospect of Russia meeting Saudi Arabia in the World Cup curtain-raiser, the other Group A opener between Egypt and Uruguay looks like a more intriguing encounter.

La Celeste qualified second behind Brazil in the CONMEBOL qualifiers, with Oscar Tabarez’s side packed with excellent players and that explains why they are 8/15 to beat an Egypt side who might be missing their star man.

Mohamed Salah is heavily relied upon by the Pharaohs and the Liverpool star might not be fit enough to take his place for this match, with Hector Cuper potentially wrapping his talisman in cotton wool before more winnable matches against Saudi Arabia and Russia.

Whether Salah makes this match or not, it’s easy enough to back Uruguay to win this match without conceding. Egypt will be a defensive side throughout this tournament and this will especially apply against the strongest team in Group A.

Therefore, we’re interested in getting with La Celeste to eventually find a breakthrough and win by a slender sort of margin.

Edinson Cavani looks a good bet to top score in the World Cup and the Paris Saint Germain star could make the difference in this match, with Luis Suarez also likely to cause problems.

Uruguay are also a sound defensive team and the experience of Tabarez should stand them in good stead. We’re confused why their win to nil price is so much bigger and the correct score bets of 1-0 and 2-0 can also be punted.
