Egypt have been one of the teams with the biggest amount of hype coming into this World Cup, due to the emergence of Mohamed Salah. However, he was took an injury in the Champions League final and his participation is still up in the air. Egypt will start their duties with the toughest match in the group, against Uruguay. Uruguay are by far the biggest favorites to top the group, and they will be very lucky if Salah doesn’t play in this match. World Cup Egypt vs Uruguay Spread and Prediction.
Date/Time: 6-15-2018, 08:00 EDT
Spread: Uruguay -0.75
Total: 2 Goals
Egypt were ecstatic to reach the World Cup after many decades, and everyone had high hopes for this team. However, their hopes took a huge hit when key forward Mohamed Salah was injured in the Champions League final. His status is now up in the air right now, as there is no guarantee that he will play in the premiere. The staff might chose to protect him in this match, hoping that they can use him to get the best out of the other two matches. Apart from Salah, Egypt also have some key players that play in the Premier League, but not half as spectacular as Salah.
On the other hand, Uruguay are coming into this World Cup as the biggest favorites to top this group. PSG’s Edinson Cavani and Barcelona’s Luis Suarez are leading the offense, Uruguay are expected to terrorize the opposing defenses. Moreover, their defense will be led by Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin, and they also have a great goalkeeper in Fernando Muslera. With coach Oscar Tabares at the helm since 2006, Uruguay have been a really good and competitive unit.
Mohamed Salah’s absence or presence will seriously impact this match. There is still not a word about his status, as Egypt are holding it a well-kept secret. If he doesn’t participate, then it is Uruguay who will surely have the upper hand.
If he does participate, I would not expect to see him play huge minutes. In any case, Uruguay will have their defense stuck on him. I will go with Uruguay here, as they have a much better team, even if Mohamed Salah does play.
