Betting Tip: @ Egypt to win @ 11/4 with bet365

Russia enjoyed a dream start to their 2018 World Cup campaign although it’s been commonly acknowledged that Saudi Arabia produced an abysmal performance which led to the hosts being able to control the game and win comfortably.

The tournament hosts know that a point from their second Group A clash against Egypt should be enough to help them qualify for the last sixteen, although they should be given a stiff test against a well-drilled side who were only just beaten by Uruguay.

Hector Cuper’s side will continue to be defensively strong in this game and will hopefully be boosted by the return of Mohamed Salah, although the Liverpool man played no part against the South Americans and clearly won’t have 100% fitness.

It is imperative for Egypt that they don’t lose this match and it might be that Russia are not anywhere near as good as that initial win suggests, with the hosts only having an XG of two goals and they were flattered by two injury-time strikes.

At the prices, we’re happy to side with the hard-working Africans to claim a Group A win which would give them a real chance of going through considering they face Saudi Arabia in their final match.
