Egypt v Uruguay Betting Tips

World Cup 2018 betting: Egypt v Uruguay - Group A preview & predictions


Egypt qualified to the World Cup for the 3rd time in their history, thanks to a stoppage-time penalty from Mohammed Salah.

Mohammed Salah (Liverpool forward) put Egypt 2-1 up against Congo to confirm that they would top their World Cup Qualifiers group.

Egypt's Manager & Tactics

Hector Cuper (former Inter Milan and Valencia coach) is the man who guided Egypt to their 1st World Cup since 1990.

Hector Cuper was previously named European Coach of the Year (Valencia), as well as guiding Valencia and Mallorca to Supercopa titles.

Despite reaching their 1st World Cup in 28 years, there have been numerous criticisms of Hector Cuper’s cautious playing style, with many simplifying their tactics to just “pass it to Mohammed Salah."

Egypt Key Players

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool winger): Has been in exceptional form this competitional season for Liverpool and will want to replicate it in Russia. Scoring 20 goals in all competitions for Liverpool, all eyes will be on Mohamed Salah this year.

Mohamed Elneny (Arsenal midfielder): Has been a mainstay in the Egyptian side of recent. Despite struggling to break into the Gunners first team, he will be hugely important for his nation.

Essam El-Hadary: The Al-Taawoun keeper is the oldest player to feature at the World Cup @ 44 years old. El-Hadary will have been dreaming of representing Egypt on the world stage since his debut in 1996.


Uruguay comfortably qualified in a competitive South American group, finishing 2nd their World Cup Qualifiers.

Uruguay will be hoping they can surprise everyone with a surprise push in the World Cup 2018.

Uruguay's Manager & Tactics

Oscar Tabarez is in charge of Uruguay for the 2nd time in his career, ending his 1st spell in 1990.

Oscar Tabarez began his 2nd reign in 2006, guiding Uruguay to the semi-finals in 2010.

Uruguay doesn’t like to dominate possession and would rather hit teams on the counter-attack with their power in attack, setting up with either a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3.

How is Uruguay's form?

Uruguay went through a huge drought, not winning a match for over half a year, with 5 consecutive defeats.

Uruguay managed to pull some form together as they got wins over Bolivia and Paraguay to confirm World Cup qualification, but that bad spell still looms over them.

Uruguay Key Players

Luis Suarez (Barcelona forward): Most certainly the star of the team is Luis Suarez. The Barcelona star is Uruguay’s highest ever scorer and would love to add a World Cup to his ever-extending trophy cabinet.

Edison Cavani (PSG’s forward): Pairing up with Luis Suarez will be PSG’s Edison Cavani. PSG's star has had an exceptional 2017, scoring 53 goals in all competitions, just 1 behind Lionel Messi.

Diego Godin: The Uruguay captain has been one of the best defenders in the world since joining Atletico Madrid. Godin's leadership alongside fellow Atletico defender Jose Gimenez will be vital to Uruguay’s fate in Russia for the World Cup.
