Saudi Arabia or Egypt Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 25th June – 3.00 p.m

Both of these have already seen their qualification hopes from Group A pass them by. It hasn’t been particularly good stuff from either of them and now they have to square off in his final round of group stage matches with nothing riding on the game at all other than avoiding the wooden spoon. It makes Saudi Arabia v Egypt predictions hard to focus on because there is not likely to be too much to choose between them.

Saudi Arabia News and Form

So Saudi Arabia and Egypt have nothing to play for here other than seeing who finishes third and fourth in Group A at Russia 2018. Saudi Arabia really could not have gotten off to a worse start as they were hammered 5-0 by host nation Russia in the tournament’s opening game. They were just all over the place at the back in that game, but to their credit, they did fixture to some degree as they only suffered a 1-0 defeat against Uruguay in a second fixture. Still, it was a long way short of what they needed though and they are not looking a major threat going forward. There is not likely to be too many goals flying around in this fixture and our leading Saudi Arabia v Egypt prediction is Under 1.5 goals is at 1/3 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.). Saudi Arabia, one of the big rank outsiders at the tournament were never expected to get out of this group stage but they would have hoped to have been little more competitive. They go into this fixture winless in their last 11 World Cup games now. Their current form sees them on a five-match losing streak, scoring in just one of their last four.

Egypt News and Form

What may well keep this fixture even is the fact that Egypt are out of form as well, suffering defeats in four of their last six games. They opened their World Cup campaign with a 1-0 defeat against Uruguay and they really missed the boat there in not hanging on for a draw. Next up was a 3-1 loss against Russia and even though Egypt did have some chances in that game, their star player Mo Salah was clearly not fully fit and not running freely in the game. It looked for large periods that Egypt were carrying him. They may have been better off without him. Really ahead of the tournament there were some considerations be made about whether or not Egypt’s could throw down a challenge to Russia in the hunt for a qualification spot from this group. That hasn’t even been close to happening and they just can’t blame it all on the Mo Salah injury. That is an eight-match winless streak that the Pharaohs have now put together and even against a pretty weak Saudi Arabia side, you have to wonder whether or not they could raise a game enough to get a victory. A 0-0 result is our top Saudi Arabia v Egypt prediction which is at a price of 8/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.).

We are just going to settle on the draw being produced in this one because it is so hard to split them up. Saudi Arabia are well out of form and they are struggling in front of goal. Egypt frankly aren’t doing a whole lot better and for our Saudi Arabia v Egypt prediction, we can’t see past the 0-0 draw.
