Russia v Egypt Betting Tips, Odds & Preview
Egypt Can Land a Hammer Blow on the Hosts
20 June 2018, 1am AEST
Russia have put their trust in Stanislav Cherchesov to improve their fortunes after a disastrous Confederations Cup campaign. He favours an attacking approach but Russia may be frustrated in their attempts to pick off an Egypt side who love defending in numbers. Mo Salah’s quality could see Egypt secure a 2-1 win and give their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages a boost.
Head to Head
This is the first meeting of Russia and Egypt. Although the Egyptians have a poor record in tournaments outside of Africa, they could take advantage of the pressure on Russia’s shoulders and their inexperienced defence.
