SCORE PREDICTIONS

Saudi Arabia 0-2 Egypt

Should Mo Salah be fit and willing to play then Egypt should be able to clinch 3rd spot from Saudi Arabia who are a very poor side.

Uruguay 1-1 Russia

Uruguay don’t concede many with their formidable centre back partnership, but Russia have been mightily impressive going forward.

TIPS

SAUDI ARABIA VS EGYPT

Salah to score a brace – 11/2

Salah is Egypt’s only superstar and, having watched their first 2 games, he is the only one who will do anything going forward.

Egypt to win to nil – 2/1

Saudi Arabia do not look like scoring against anybody whereas Egypt looked reasonably solid against Uruguay.

URUGUAY vs RUSSIA

Cavani first goalscorer – 7/2

The PSG forward hasn’t got going in this tournament yet, but he is a top-class striker and he won’t be kept quiet forever.

Suarez & Cheryshev to have 2+ shots on target each – 12/1

Both teams will be desperate to win given the top spot is up for grabs and this should mean chances. Cheryshev has been superb for Russia and everyone knows the quality that Suarez has.
