Group A, FIFA World Cup 2018 opening match

FIFA World Cup 2018

URU vs EGY Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Match Day 2 will see two times World Cup winners Uruguay taking on Egypt, who would be playing their third World Cup appearance almost after three decades. The opening match will be played between the host Russia and Saudi Arabia and the outcome of this game will shape the future of the four teams in Group A. According to bettors, both Uruguay and Egypt are the ones to make it to the next stage so all eyes would be on the Pharaohs who are doubtful to play without their talisman for this game. Uruguay, on the other hand, who is technically the most successful team in Group A, has a lot to figure out because the last time they lifted the trophy was back in 1950.

Uruguay came close to lift their third world cup in 2010 when they reached the semi-finals but got beaten by Netherlands by a score of 3-2 goals and now with the likes of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, the Uruguayans will eye their World Cup.  Though it may seem a far-fetched dream for the Uruguayans but the goal scoring abilities of their attackers have put up a combined total of 71 goals in 99 matches between them at club games. Moreover La Celeste is in a terrific form at the moment with just one defeat and three clean sheets in their last six matches. They would come into this game with great confidence as they have never lost to an African side in a World Cup fixture and they would want to keep it that way.

However, the Egyptians may be without The Egyptian King in their opening game but they should not be taken lightly as they have won the Africa Cup of Nations for a record of seven times and they are strong enough to match La Celeste. Mohammed Salah’s injury in the UEFA Champions League final have left many Egyptians and football fans heartbroken but it is most likely that he would play unless if there’s no other serious concern. Egypt qualified for the World Cup as group winners, standing atop of Uganda, Ghana and Congo. Egypt may come into this game on a winless run in their last six games but their performance against Portugal and Colombia makes them a strong contender to qualify to the next round.

This FIFA World Cup 2018, Group A, match is to be played at Central Stadium, Yekaterinburg at 17:00 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 2 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

RUS vs BEL Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Suspension
Uruguay vs Egypt:

Uruguay: La Celeste is most likely to field a similar playing 11 that won their last game against Uzbekistan with Christian Rodriguez getting a nod ahead of Nahitan Nandez. Veteran defenders Martin Caceres may get a starting berth in this game ahead of Gaston Silva. Edinson Cavani is expected to be the sole attacker in the front with Luis Suarez staring behind him. Sampdoria star Lucas Torreira is expected to feature in this game but nothing is certain.

Egypt: Mo Salah’s fitness remains the crucial concern for the Egyptians ahead of this game and if he cannot make it in this game then Huddersfield Town’s new signing Ramadan Sobhi is most likely to replace him.  Playmaker Abdullah El-Said is expected to start in the midfield. Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny and Tarek Hamed are also expected to feature in this game.

Important Live updates – 01:05 PM, (More to come),

02:03 PM, Teams updated –

 

Egypt – Despite suffering a shoulder injury and not fit at the time of naming final 23-man squad for the World Cup, Egypt boss Hector Cuper selected superstar Mohamed Salah in his squad.

The Liverpool forward hasn’t played since that horrific night in the Champions League final and was always racing against time to get fit for his nation’s opening game against Uruguay.
But Cuper has stated that Salah is “almost 100%” fit for the match and will most probably feature in this match. So he could be your star-man in your fantasy football team.
Defender Ali Gabr should also be fit to play after suffering a facial injury in the training.
For Uruguay, it’s all about the experience of their forward players with both Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani boasting a mammoth 93 goals between them.
However, we could see some changes in the midfield with 20-year-old Rodrigo Bentancur and Nahitan Nandez, 22 could both start in the middle for the South American team.
Winning formula for this match – 02:03 PM

Even if Mohamed Salah is fit and firing on all cylinders, Uruguay are heavy favorites to win this match. The two-time World Champions possess some world-renowned players in their ranks and should finish the job in this match.

For the Pharaohs, both El-Hadary and Ekramy are in contention to start between the sticks, so our advice is to go with Uruguay’s goalie, while a backline consisting of Uruguay players and a mixture of both sets of players in the middle could be your best combo. In striker, Suarez should get the nod ahead of Cavani if you ran out of points to select both these players.
Formula – Egypt – 4 players (5 Max), Uruguay – 7 players.

 

URU vs EGY Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

 

Egypt is sweating on the fitness of star man Mohamed Salah ahead of their World Cup opener against Uruguay on Friday. Preperation has not gone well, as Hector Cuper’s side is winless in their last six matches. Uruguay is favourites to finish Group A as winners and will start their campaign against Egypt, who will try and rival them for top spot. Oscar Tabarez’s side has won their last three matches heading into the tournament. A strike force of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani should prove too much for Uruguay, particularly if Salah fails to overcome injury in time to feature for the Pharaohs.
