Market: Uruguay to win to nil
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
Traveling to Russia as an overwhelming favorite to win Group A, Uraguay will look to carry on their stellar run of form when they face off against Egypt at the Ekaterinburg Arena.
For Uraguay, after finishing ahead of the likes of Argentina in qualifying, Óscar Tabárez should be entering this summers finals filled with confidence. Coming off the back of a 3-0 win against Uzbekistan in their final warm-up match, while forwards Edison Cavani and Luis Suarez have now scored eight goals between them in Uraguay’s last six matches, it has been The White and Blues most recent defensive record that has caught the eye. Tabarez’s defense, led by Atletico Madrid star man Diego Godin, have now kept clean sheets in six of their last eight.
As for Egypt, unsurprisingly head coach Héctor Cúper is eagerly awaiting the news if talisman and captain Mo Salah will be fit to spare head the Egyptian attack. After coming off with a shoulder injury during Liverpool’s Champions League defeat to Real Madrid last month, Salah has not played for Egypt in any of their friendlies and Egypt have drastically struggled. Coming off the back of a 3-0 loss to Belgium last week, The Reds have now failed to win any of their last six and even more of a concern for Cuper, his side have now failed to find the net in three of their last four.
