Egypt v Uruguay World Cup Match Preview and Predictions - Uruguay to make winning start in Group A

Gary Emmerson 12 Jun 2018
  • Uruguay have won all three games this year without conceding
  • Egypt have gone six games without a win
  • Egypt have never qualified from the group stages

Uruguay and Egypt get their 2018 World Cup campaigns underway when they meet in Group A in Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg on Friday, June 15.

Egypt v Uruguay kicks off at 10.00pm AEST on Friday. The game will be broadcast on SBS and Optus Sport in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview


Uruguay and Egypt go head-to-head in 2018 World Cup Group A when they clash in Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg and both will be keen to pick up an opening victory.

With hosts Russia expected to get the better of Saudi Arabia in the tournament opener 24 hours earlier, both Uruguay and Egypt will be keen to avoid defeat. A loss in this one could leave a mountain to climb for both sides.

Egypt are sweating on the fitness of star man Mo Salah ahead of the tournament after his memorable season with Liverpool, as the the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations runners-up attempt to win their first ever game at a World Cup finals.

This will only be Egypt's third appearance aEt a finals after 1934 and 1990, but hopes are high after they qualified impressively as winners of Group E in Africa. 

But since ending qualification with a 1-1 draw with Ghana, Egypt have gone winless this year and it is now six games with victory. Can Hector Cuper's side end that run against Uruguay.

Uruguay, who qualified as runners-up to Brazil in South America under Oscar Tabarez, have been a force in the last two World Cups. They finished fourth in 2010 in South Africa and were beaten in the Round of 16 by Colombia four years ago in Brazil.

With plenty of talent in their squad including Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, Europe are expected to at least match that effort and make it out of Group A and they can start with a comfortable win. Take them to repeat all three results of fixtures in 2018 and win without conceding.
