Egypt vs Uruguay Prediction & Betting tips
Betting on scorers at individual games are always very popular for the World Cup. While some teams like Hazard, de Bruyne, Mertens, Carrasco and Lukaku have a handful of goal-scoring players in their squad, selection on other teams like Egypt (Mohamed Salah) is much more limited. Exactly around the first match of the pharaohs it is with Egypt against Uruguay also with this tip. However, with Mohamed Salah on target and star striker Liverpool FC out of shape right away, betting on the North Africans against their favorite Uruguayan side is not recommended.
Rather, it’s worth taking a look at the betting odds of the South Americans. There are two very hot irons as scorers in the fire with Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. Whether one of the two or even both players on Friday to register in the scorer list, will decide from 14:00 clock when the kickoff occurs.
The euphoria in Egypt after the first World Cup participation for 28 years was huge and the anticipation grew in the run up to the finals – until the fateful Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool FC. Mohamed Salah, the great superstar of Egypt, broke his shoulder and the World Cup was suddenly in great danger. He has now been called into the squad and seems to be at least in the first round to be ready, but if he has his full capacity, must be doubted.
Regardless of the playful class of Salah, the attacker is also very important as a personality for his teammates. In preparation, the performances of the North Africans without their leader were more than tenuous and throughout 2018 the national team are waiting for a victory in five games. The question mark behind the squad of coach Hector Cuper is so big.
In the very strong South American qualifying, Uruguay have beaten Brazil as the runner-up for the World Cup finals in Russia. Teams like Argentina or Chile were clearly left behind. Also, the draw was not the worst for the world champion of 1930 and with Egypt, Russia and Saudi Arabia, all opponents should be beatable. Failure of the South Americans would be a big disappointment and also a surprise.
Defensively, Diego Godin of Atletico Madrid pulls the strings and offensive you do not have to add much to the two names Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez. Both attackers have proven their quality over the years in the European top leagues. The Sturm Duo wants to set against Egypt to kick off a first fragrance brand.
