Russia vs Egypt Match Preview 

The hosts place themselves in front foot with a 5-0 win against Saudi Arabia in the opening session of the World Cup 2018 and could turn into the main group to meet all requirements for the round of 16 with a win against Egypt on Tuesday evening. 

The Pharaohs then again, worked so hard against Uruguay and appeared to have rescued a point before a later header from Atletico Madrid protector José Maria Gimenez sent them to a 1-0 overcome. Their second Group A diversion against Russia is crucial and nothing not as much as a win will keep them in the race for round of 16 capability. 

A Russia win on Tuesday joined with Uruguay dodging an annihilation against Saudi Arabia will send the hosts to the round of 16. In the event that Egypt sack three focuses here, at that point they stay in the opposition, however may in any case require a major win against Saudi Arabia in the last gathering amusement.

Russia vs Egypt Head-to-head (h2h) 

The two groups from Group A, Russia and Egypt are meeting without precedent for an aggressive football game. 

Russia vs Egypt Predictions 

Russia' street to the World Cup has been rough, yet the gigantic win on opening day give them enough certainty for the rest of the battle. Stanislav Cherchesov' arrangements for the competition has been defaced by wounds to some of his first cooperative individuals and a win-less keep running since October 2017. Things look splendid now, particularly with Aleksandr Golovin and Denis Cheryshev in fine scoring structure. 

Mohammed Salah's arrival to the line-up could support Egypt's certainty. Be that as it may, I am worried about the possibility that that they are excessively protective for real times of the time. They can't drive players forward as a group not at all like Uruguay who are in amazing musicality. I had said this previously, with or without Salah, Egypt had battled for goals and they will be in a bad way if remain back and guard against the Russians. Neither have they won a diversion outside their nation of origin since October 2016.
