Egypt vs Uruguay match stats

  • The first was a friendly match in Alexandria in August 2006 which Uruguay won 2-0 
  • Diego Godin, who is now Uruguay's captain, scored the opening goal on that occasion

Egypt vs Uruguay betting preview

Egypt play their first match in the World Cup finals since 1990 and only their fifth ever as they meet Uruguay in Yekaterinburg hoping to prove their worth early against the group favourites and make a huge step towards a spot in the top two of Group A. They boast great dressing-room atmosphere and will look to make it count, but backing Hector Cuper’s men to secure three points does appear a long-shot at 6/1 with BetStars.

The Pharaohs will be nowhere near an easy side to beat though, despite the absence of Liverpool's Mo Salah who is likely to miss this match after sustaining a shoulder injury which forced him to be substituted only half an hour into his team's Champions League Final defeat against Real Madrid. There is obviously a lot for Egypt to prove in Russia but we do believe they can make this a great contest.

Uruguay have great experience playing in big tournaments and this will surely show in Russia too, as they come as heavy outright favourites to win Group A – priced at 10/11 with William Hill. They hope to show such character on the day too, building on very solid defensive displays that we have come to get used to from Oscar Tabarez's men. 

With that in mind, many feel we are in for a very tight occasion with high stakes and few all-out attacks, so Under 2.5 Goals should prove to be buying money at 4/7 with BetBright. Both sides come into the competition on the back of such clashes and that could be further evidence for such a bet.

Egypt vs Uruguay predictions

We do hope to see Egypt impress on the day and feel they will be able to hold off Uruguay, as we stick our neck out for them to earn at least a point in the Double Chance market – Egypt or Draw is 7/5 with bet365.

We do feel this will be a tough task nonetheless and do not feel we will see many goals on the day, so going for Under 2.5 Goals at 4/7 with BetBright could prove the best value in the market at this point.
