In the second game in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, we are given the clash of Group A heavyweights, Egypt and Uruguay.
Egypt will be playing their third World Cup and already had a close call with their main player days before the tournament. Mohamed Salah who was playing for Liverpool suffered an injury to his shoulder due to a tackle by Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos in the UEFA Champions League Final.
However, the doctors have cleared the 25-year-old winger to play for his team, but his fitness still remains in doubt. Being absolutely sensational all season long for his club, the FIFA World Cup was an ideal platform for him to show that he should be considered as one of the best players in the world. It is quite possible that he will start this crucial game against Uruguay as the two teams will vie for the top spot of their group.
Meanwhile, Uruguay is a regular of the World Cup. The team has a rock-solid defence with Atletico Madrid’s defensive pairing of Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez. They have a goalkeeper in Fernando Muslera who has played against the best teams in Europeans clubs and that experience has made him a safe call for the job of being the safety net to the backline.
But, Uruguay’s firepower lies in their attack, with two superstars in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani working in tandem. The duo has gelled well whenever they’ve played together and won’t shy away from showcasing their flair and exploiting defensive weaknesses.

URU vs EGY recent form (Last six matches)
Uruguay –W L D W D W
Uruguay has been in decent form in their preparation for the World Cup. Apart from losing against a well-drilled Austrian side they have performed well The only thing they have lacked is potency of attack sometimes, and this can come back to bite the South American side if they don’t aren’t consistent with their gameplan. The team did bounce back immediately to a loss against Austria to a thumping win over Uzbekistan.
Egypt– L D D L L D
The African side has had a more troubled road to the World Cup. Plagued by the injury of their start man Mo Salah, the team lacked confidence and disjointed. They haven’t won in the last six games, and if Egypt wants to leave a mark at this tournament they need to get their act together soon.

*Since this is the second game of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Uruguay and for the teams as well, the lineups can have some subtle changes. The predictions will get more accurate as the tournament progresses.
Players to look out for-
The 23-year old has been linked with a move to Marseille after a phenomenal last season where he scored 16 goals as a winger. With the expected absence of Mohamed Salah, he can show that he can also elevate the team beyond their potential.
Suarez has scored 31 goals in the 2017/18 season and is the prime of his career. This is the right time for him to show that he can perform at the highest level without the help of Lionel Messi.
Gambling India Info Match Prediction Uruguay vs Egypt –
Egypt’s attacking potency without Mo Salah seems deflated, and this might also cause the team to be underconfident against a team such as Uruguay. The South Americans have experience and star power to power their way through their African opponents, and we expect them to win this game.

Important Live updates – 01:05 PM, (More to come),
02:03 PM, Teams updated –
Egypt – Despite suffering a shoulder injury and not fit at the time of naming final 23-man squad for the World Cup, Egypt boss Hector Cuper selected superstar Mohamed Salah in his squad.
Even if Mohamed Salah is fit and firing on all cylinders, Uruguay are heavy favorites to win this match. The two-time World Champions possess some world-renowned players in their ranks and should finish the job in this match.
URU vs EGY Dream 11 Team Predictions-
Luis Suarez loved being involved in the game and will be making a significant impact for his side. It was becoming difficult to keep both the Uruguay defenders in the same team as it compromised the attack or the midfield so we’ve taken either of them in both teams. Mo Salah is expected to feature in this game and it is a gamble to take him in, but we expect his presence even off the bench can be fruitful for Egypt.
