Russia vs Egypt (By: Morfeo)

Betting on a WC is always difficult, but it's better than nothing. Here we have the hosting team, Russia, with a chance to make another big step towards qualification. They won big in the first game, 5-0, and morale should be very high, while pressure has lowered. This price is from Betfair, but we think any price above 1.80 is a valuable one.

Russia got to the WC in bad shape, but they had the biggest win so far. We liked Golovin and Cheryshev and we can see them doing damages to Egyptian defense. Egypt is a proud team and they have Salah, but the guy is not 100% and he doesn't have around him Liverpool players. Egypt is winless in last 7 games, losing 4 of them. They scored just 1 goal in last 5 games (0-1, 0-3, 0-0, 1-1, 0-1). They look fragile back and we expect them to struggle. Last win for Egypt dates back to October 2017, 2-1 vs Congo. They lost all 3 matches they recently played against European teams (0-3 vs Belgium, 0-1 vs Greece, 1-2 vs Portugal).

No need to say, local team have always been helped in some way in the history of WC, and many times we saw local teams having unexpected long runs in this event. Russia will play with much less pressure than the first game and they have been preparing this event for a long time, we think bookies are underestimating a little bit the Russians, considering Egypt recent form.

I just hope russia wouldnt lose tommorow. The team aged, slow and the weakest russian team all the time. Before wc it lost 2 key central defenders, top striker kokorin and now lost the most creative playmaker dzgoev. The winning 5:0 was fluke saudis being on ramadan fasting couldnt show much resistance and lost all possible battles. The genius of cherchesov was to play attacking high pressing style. However he wouldnt dare play against egyptians same way. Anyway by making the draw russia will guarantie play off 1:1 0:0. I cannot believe russia capable to win the egyptians but i hope it wont lose at last minute by mochamed salah scoring some fanthom goal.
