Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Last game for Saudi Arabia and Egypt in World Cup 2018 is about to be played on Monday. This game is also good candidate to put our bets and earn some cash. These two teams played on regular basis until 2007. Egypt has clearly better statistics because they collected four wins, one draw and one defeat. Last game was close call but Egypt won it 2:1.
The Green Falcons are flying back home after match against Egypt because in first two rounds they recorded two defeats. After first game with Russians and disastrous defeat it was obvious that Saudi Arabia does not have what it takes to reach elimination phase. Next game was against Uruguay and they entered that match relaxed. In first part of the match there was only one serious scoring attempt. In twenty-third minute Uruguay scored after corner kick 1:0. In rest of the match we saw no more goals. All in all it was one boring game and routine victory for Uruguay. Besides the fact that Saudi Arabia lost both games so far, they also failed to score in those matches. Next opponent is Egypt and objectively they are better than Saudi Arabia but if their bad luck is still with them then we may even see surprise.
That’s it. Show’s over for Egyptians. After two games they have two defeats. First game they lost unfortunately but in second one they were destroyed by Russia. First part of the match was mostly boring. Russians had one chance to score but nets remained calm. Two minutes after second half began, Ahmed Fathy scored own goal and Egypt collapsed. Twelve minutes later, Russians doubled the lead 2:0. In sixty-second minute Egypt conceded third time in the match 3:0. Consolation goal scored the best Egyptian player, Mohamed Salah in seventy-third minute when referee awarded penalty. That was first goal for Egypt in this World Cup. The Pharaohs have only one more game to play and that’s last chance to really show what they can do. There is no need for calculations and both teams will play offensively for pride and glory.

Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Prediction
We don’t expect an interesting game between Saudi Arabia and Egypt on Matchday 3 in Group A. After two matches both sides have 0 points and they are not highly motivated for this game. Neither side have impressed over their two matches and we don’t expect lots of scoring chances. Saudi Arabia had a catastrophic first match against Russia in the opening game, while in their second have conceded just one goal. On the other side Egypt also conceded just one goal on match against Uruguay, but they have lost 1-3 by Russia. The Pharaohs have won none of their last six matches and have scored just two goals in those results. Both teams already been knocked out of the competition after they both lost their first two matches and they will play to prove themselves on the Matchday 3. Neither side will want to finish at the bottom in Group A and will play strong and aggressive football in defending.
However our prediction and betting tips for the match Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Prediction: Under 2.5 goals. We don’t expect lots of scoring chances on this match, so you can try to bet on 1st Half Time Draw. In the second halve we expect from Egypt to score exactly one goal and our risky bet goes on correct score 0-1. If you want to take more risk then can try with bet X/2.
