Egypt vs Uruguay predictions and betting tips for the World Cup 2018 Group A fixture on Friday 15th June at 1pm. Will the Uruguayans turn up in full force this summer, or can those buoyant Egyptians triumphantly steal the 2018 World Cup spot-light for themselves?
Both teams will want to get a win to kick-off their World Cup Group A campaign but Mo Salah faces a race against time to be fully fit and Uruguay have Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani in their starting line-up, so who can get the three points here? See our Egypt vs Uruguay betting tips and predictions below to find out.
Uruguay are many people’s outside bet to win the World Cup and they are favourites in the latest betting odds to beat Egypt here. The odds for a Uruguay win are 8/13, the draw is 11/4 with Betfair and the best odds for Egypt to beat Uruguay are 13/2 at Betfred. Mo Salah faces a race against time to be fit but he’s 17/5 to score anytime. The favourite in this market is Uruguay’s Luis Suarez who is best odds 11/10 to find the net.

Mo Salah faces a race against time to get fit for this World Cup match but given that it is a shoulder injury rather than a part of the leg, he will surely feature if only running at 90% fitness. The Liverpool man was sensational in his first season on Merseyside and it was his penalty that got Egypt to the World Cup in qualifying. He scored 42 goals for Liverpool during the 2017-18 season including 10 Champions League goals and although his final was cut short, we’re backing him to continue his goalscoring exploits at the World Cup. The first of our Egypt vs Uruguay predictions is for Mo Salah to score in the match and the odds are 17/5 with Unibet. Check the line-ups before placing this bet but that 17/5 certainly should not be missed.

The second bet we’re going for here is a correct score prediction. The opening World Cup fixture is normally a nervy occasion and that could ring true for both teams here. Uruguay are strong favourites to win but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll get the job done. The second of our Egypt vs Uruguay predictions is for the match to end 1-1 and you’ll get odds of 7/1 with Betfair for this outcome. We are predicting Uruguay to win Group A but they might have some work to do after a draw in their opening fixture against Egypt.
