The great thing about the World Cup, is it brings nations together who may never play each other in football at any other time. A great example of this is the meeting of Saudi Arabia vs Egypt in Group A of the 2018 World Cup.
The last time the teams met was in a friendly in 2005 and there will not be many players left in either squad from that match.
Both nations will be hoping they have left themselves with a chance to qualify by winning this match and it should be a very exciting game. With Russia playing Uruguay in their final match, the winner of this game could seal a place in the Round of 16. Let's take a look at Saudi Arabia vs Egypt betting tips.
1. Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Odds
When it comes to Saudi Arabia vs Egypt odds, these are pretty straightforward. Neither team has a great pedigree when it comes to the World Cup and despite having played in fewer World Cup tournaments and never made it out of the group stages in their history, it is Egypt which come into this game as the favourites to win, priced at 8/11 with Bet365.
Egypt have a good record over Saudi Arabia and have the stronger looking squad, with several players in the English Premier League and Championship. Egypt defeated Ghana on their way to the World Cup in Russia and will feel they are a tougher team than what they will face in this match.
However, Saudi Arabia are the only team of the two who have progressed from the group stages at the World Cup, having done so in 1994 and if they can stage a repeat of that in Russia, the players will go home as heroes.

Last update: April 11, 2018 02:43
If Saudi Arabia are to reach the knockout stages of the 2018 World Cup, it is highly likely they will need to take something from this match but the bookmakers do not fancy their chances of defeating Egypt.
Saudi Arabia are out at 4/1 with Bet365 to win the game, with the draw also on offer at 5/2.
2. Saudi Arabia vs Egypt Predictions
Despite having Mohamed Salah in their ranks, Egypt were hardly free-scoring in the third and final round of their qualifying campaign. They netted 8 goals in six games and this suggests they may struggle to find the back of the net regularly at the World Cup.
However, they are the better team in this match and should go on to win the game, even if it is by a narrow margin. Egypt to win by a 1-goal margin is 12/5 at Bet365.
With that in mind and the lack of a world class forward in the Saudi Arabia squad, just one goal could be enough for Egypt to win and possibly seal their place in the Round of 16. Egypt to win 1-0 is 5/1 at Bet365.
