Our prediction for this World Cup 2018 match:
Against all odds, Russia hammered Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the opening match of their World Cup campaign. Stanislav Cherchesov’s men were scoring goals for fun against the Saudis, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Tuesday’s football game against Egypt. The Pharaohs, on the other hand, were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Uruguay in their opener, but La Celeste eventually scored a late winner in the dying minutes of the match. Mohamed Salah missed the opener with injury, but the Liverpool superstar is widely expected to play some part in the second group game. Yet another man to watch in the away team will be midfielder Mohamed Elneny, who produced a fine performance in the 1-0 loss to Uruguay. Taking everything into account, a close encounter is on the horizon and we predict the two teams are going to play out a draw in Tuesday’s clash.
