Egypt vs Uruguay predictions FIFA World Cup 2018
Egypt’s warm up games haven’t been overly promising either. They were well beaten at the hands of Belgium last week, with that 3-0 loss following on from a goalless draw against Colombia. They are now winless in six games and have lost three of them, so confidence isn’t exactly sky high ahead of the big kickoff.
Uruguay, unusually, have opted for only a single warm up friendly ahead of the tournament. They hammered Uzbekistan 3-0, and after their duo of China Cup wins in March they have now won three matches on the bounce and kept a clean sheet throughout.
Suarez might get most of the plaudits at domestic level, but Cavani has been the star of Uruguay’s show recently. He topped the scoring charts of the South American World Cup qualifying stage, netting ten goals in their 18 games. He has continued in that vein with a goal in three of Uruguay’s last four matches, so we fancy him to get on the scoresheet here.
As far as the overall result goes, it’s hard to look beyond Uruguay here. We think it’s unlikely that Salah will be risked in a game they are likely to lose anyway, especially when coming up against the mean defence of Godin and Gimenez. Three of Uruguay’s last four victories have seen them win by more than a single goal margin as well
