Saudi Arabia vs Egypt | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Action in Group A continues when Saudi Arabia take on Egypt on Monday afternoon, with the duo going into the match without a single point to their name from their opening two matches. With both sides looking to avoid a demoralising whitewash in Group A, a close encounter is expected at the Volgograd Arena.
Saudi Arabia and Egypt go head-to-head in the final round of matches in Group A of this summer’s World Cup, with the duo both hoping to claim their first win of the competition in Volgograd. The two sides have scored just one goal between them from their respective opening two matches, with the duo knowing that even three points on Monday will not be enough to qualify for the next stage of the competition. Little separates the two nations ahead of kick-off, meaning that there are some appealing betting markets available. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, be sure to check out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Saudi Arabia.
Saudi News & Form
Saudi Arabia have lost to both Russia and Uruguay so far in the tournament, failing to score a goal in the process. A lack of goalscoring threat has certainly hindered their progress, with manager Juan Antonio Pizzi under pressure to ensure that his side come away with something from their final clash.
Egypt News & Form
Following their defeat to hosts Russia, Egypt will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Saudi Arabia, with the African giants having confirmed that Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah will feature, despite his pre-tournament injury. Salah scored 71% of Egypt’s goals during qualifying, while Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny is another certain starter for the away side. Elsewhere, 45-year-old goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary could become the oldest ever World Cup player if he takes to the field.
Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Head to Head
The two nations have met on six occasions in the past, with Saudi Arabia having just one win to their name from such encounters. However, it is Egypt who have won the last two clashes between the duo, including a comfortable 2-0 success in the Pan Arab Games back in 2007. However, with over a decade having past since this date, few conclusions can be made from the head-to-head record between Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Odds and Predictions
Despite losing their opening two matches of the tournament in Russia, their performances during qualifying and number of recognisable players in their squad means that it comes as little surprise that Egypt are the narrow favourites for victory with all major online bookmakers. The Pharaohs are available to back at odds of 17/10 with William Hill, while Saudi Arabia are priced at 15/4 on the same platform to claim their first win of the competition. Meanwhile, a draw after 90 minutes is available at 13/5 with NetBet.
