Saudi Arabia v Egypt Prediction & Betting Tips – World Cup 201825th June 2018 / lee
Saudi Arabia v Egypt World Cup 2018, 25th June – 3.00 p.m
This is a totally dead rubber in Group A with neither having a point on the board so far. Saudi Arabia did better in their second match as they stuck in there decently enough against Uruguay but still lost. As for Egypt, they had Mo Salah back for their second game, but he was pretty much a passenger as the Pharaohs suffered a loss against Russia. It will be interesting to see who wants this more.

Saudi Arabia or Egypt Betting Tips
So there is nothing at stake in this fixture for either of these two and that is probably not going to lead to a very thrilling game. The only thing that there is left to settle is who finishes bottom. Saudi Arabia’s campaign was really over before it had a chance to get going as they lost 5-0 against Russia in the tournament’s opening fixture. They were a defensive mess in a fixture and even though they tightened up well for their second game, they still lost 1-0 against Uruguay. It is not as if any of that was a huge surprise because they were big underdogs to get out of this group.
So now it is basically going to be whether or not they can bow out in style by collecting a victory when they take on Egypt. Saudi Arabia are winless now in 11 world cup fixtures. Their current form does not inspire a great deal of hope as they are on a five-match losing streak and they have failed to score in three of their last four games. Under 1.5 goals is at 1/3 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 9:32 p.m.) and for a Saudi Arabia v Egypt prediction it is hard to look past that. Overall Saudi Arabia have looked one of the weakest sides at the tournament.
Egypt are not carrying any form with them as they have lost four of their last six games, drawing the other two. They have only managed to come up with goals in two of their last six games and it has to be a pretty disappointing World Cup campaign for them. Ahead of the tournament punters were looking at them as possibly being able to challenge Russia for a qualification spot, but they have fallen a long way short of that. They did battle well against Uruguay in their opening game, losing 1-0 and they did have their chances against Russia, but they were wasteful with what they got and once they did concede they just fell apart.
Mo Salah made a full appearance for Egypt in their second group stage fixture, but he didn’t look as if he could run properly because of his shoulder injury which kept him out of the first team. Given that neither of these two are in form and that there is nothing riding on this game, the obvious expectation is that this will just be a low scoring, non-competitive fixture. In the bet365 correct score market we are looking at a 0-0 result for our 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.).
