Egypt vs Colombia predictions and betting tips for their fixture on June 1st at 8:15pm ahead of the World Cup 2018 . With the Summer competition ahead of them, which players will impress and which side will gain some much-needed confidence?
We’re expecting a lot of goals in this one with it being a friendly. We expect both managers to make changes and players will be looking to impress to earn themselves a start at the World Cup. Egypt will be without Mohamed Salah in this one so that dampens their attacking threat. Meanwhile, Colombia have the likes of James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao spearheading their attack, so we can certainly expect goals from the South American side.
The first of our Egypt vs Colombia betting tips is for both teams to score and Colombia to win here. Salah isn’t in the Egypt squad after his Champions League final injury and so we’re backing a Colombia win. The second of the predictions is for over 3.5 goals and you can see the reasons for the betting tips and predictions below.
Mohamed Salah is one of the best players on the planet at the minute and the Liverpool man will certainly be in with a chance of the Balon D’or. However, the Egyptian was injured in the Champions League final and will miss this match, although Salah is expected to be fit for the World Cup.
The Egypt side will do well to win this fixture and we think the Colombian’s will ease past them in this friendly ahead of the World Cup. This is the Colombian side’s only official warm-up match ahead of the World Cup so we can expect them to field a strong side. Egypt’s World Cup preparations begun with an uninspiring 1-1 draw with Kuwait and they are not in great form having not won in four matches.
Friendly matches can turn out to have a lot of goals in them and we think this fixture will bring exactly that. With the World Cup on the horizon, neither manager is going to play their best available 11 for the entirety of the match and we’re hoping this will be a catalyst for goals in this match. Egypt got on the scoresheet not so long ago, and we think they’ll do so again here.
Colombia have some excellent attacking players that can cause damage to a vulnerable Egypt defence, while the Egyptians can take advantage of Colombia conceding five goals in their last four away matches here. We’re expecting an encounter which will feature a lot of goals as the World Cup inches ever nearer so over 3.5 goals goes in as the second of our Egypt vs Colombia predictions this week.
