Egypt vs Uruguay Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Egypt vs. Uruguay is interesting match to test our knowledge/luck, put bets and earn money. These nations played only once altogether. It was friendly match that won Uruguay as visitors 0:2. That game was held in 2006.
Egypt is placed in group A together with Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay. First opponent is by far the strongest among them. The Pharaohs finished first and last game was quite dramatic. In last seconds of the match ref awarded penalty to Egypt and they turned over the score 2:1. The scorer of both goals was young Liverpool star Mohamed Salah. He plays for national team since 2011 and he already scored thirty-three goals. However his participation in World Cup is under question due to injury. Egypt does not have big experience playing World Cups. They played only twice so far and on both occasions they failed to score. Their manager Hector Cuper achieved the best win/loss ratio with current team. So, to sum up, strength of Egypt is in two men. If defenders stop Mohamed Salah and other managers counter Cuper’s favorite 4-2-3-1 formation then Egypt is mostly helpless. Their primary goal should be scoring first goal in World Cup and trying to remain undefeated against strong Uruguay.
Uruguay was never favorite for winning World Cup except for once maybe. It was back in 1930 when they were hosts. Yet still they managed to won it twice. The Sky Blues qualified for World Cup after they finished in second place right behind Brazil. Edison Cavani from PSG scored ten goals in that competition and he was top goal scorer. Second best scorer in Uruguayan squad was Luis Suarez. After qualifiers they took part in China Cup where they changed formation and they won two games. Uruguay played only one friendly match in this year. On June 8 they defeated Uzbekistan 3:0. Before that, they played variations with only one attacker. Now they switched to good old 4-4-2 and results came. There are lots of advantages on Uruguayan side. The biggest Egyptian star is in process of recovering after injury and Uruguay has vast experience playing World Cup matches.
This is only the second time the two countries face one another. Uruguay have won last game 12 years ago. Enjoy in the clash of Egypt vs. Uruguay and be sure to take your time and check our predictions and betting tips for this football match. Read more bellow.
