Egypt v Uruguay Preview
Egypt take on Uruguay in their opening match at The Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg, and it won’t come as a surprise that sportsbooks offer Uruguay as the favourites to win this one.
These teams have only met on one occasion, which was an international friendly back in 2006 when Uruguay walked away with a 2-0 victory, and Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez will be hoping for a similar result from this clash.
The South American team are the front-runners to top Group A, and a victory over the top seeded African team would put them in a very strong position coming out of their opening fixture.
This is Egypt’s first appearance in the World Cup in 28 years, and although they have a very talented squad, Hector Cuper’s team may struggle against some of the stronger teams.
Without a doubt, there has been a significant improvement under Cuper, however Egypt come into their first match having lost their last 2 friendly fixtures against Greece and Portugal.
While they came extremely close to beating Portugal, only to be robbed by a couple of Ronaldo goals in injury time, their not so stellar performance against Greece is far more concerning.
Egypt are the top seeded African team in the 2022 World Cup, and while sportsbooks expect them to hold their own in this group, it will be exciting to watch how they perform against the likes of Uruguay with Premier League goal machine Salah in the team.
Uruguay are one f the top 10 favourites to win the 2022 World Cup, and are easily expected to top their qualifying group to progress through to the Round of 16.
Tabarez’s men come into the Egypt match after solid wins in the last round of friendlies, when they had impressive wins against Wales and The Czech Republic.
They're one of the teams to look out for in World Cup 2022, and with the likes of Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani up front, definitely not a team to take lightly.
Uruguay as the favourites to beat Egypt, but their biggest challenge will be their next opponents if they either top the group or come second, as they'll likely face either Spain or Portugal.
Uruguay are famous for being a difficult team to judge, as they are either brilliant or uninspired and a strong qualifying round will be crucial to their campaign, starting with a victory over Egypt!
