Egypt vs Uruguay match stats

  • Uruguay are heavy favourites with much more World Cup experience
  • Egypt boast fine form and dressing room spirits 
  • La Celeste have bagged a 0-2 win in the sides’ only head-to-head clash so far, earning a friendly win in Alexandria back in 2006

Egypt vs Uruguay betting preview

Egypt will be the provisional hosts at Stadion Central'nyj in Yekaterinburg as they meet Uruguay for their Matchday 1 clash hoping to prove their worth early against the group favourites and make a huge step towards a spot in the top 2. They boast great dressing room atmosphere and look to make it count but backing Hector Cuper’s men to secure all three points does look like a longshot at 4/1 with Ladbrokes.

Pharaohs will be nowhere near an easy side to beat and side led by Mohamed Salah, who has impressed for Liverpool this term, surely have high hopes of causing an upset in Group A. There's obviously a lot 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 11/10 with BetVictor. They hope to show off such a character on the day too – building on very solid defensive displays we’ve come to get used to from Oscar Tabarez and his men. 

With that in mind, many feel we’re in for a very narrow occasion with high stakes and few all-out attacks, where Under 2.5 Goals FT should prove buying money at 7/10 with Betfair. Both sides come into the competition on the back of such clashes and this could be further evidence for such a bet.

Egypt vs Uruguay predictions

We do hope to see Egypt impress on the day already and we do feel they’ll be able to hold off Uruguay, as we stick our necks out for them to earn at least a point with Double Chance – Egypt or Draw at Evens with Ladbrokes.

We do feel this will come as a tough task nonetheless and we don’t feel we’ll see many goals on the day, where going for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 7/10 with Betfair could prove the best value in the market at this point.
