I love backing teams with home advantage, tipsters may have noticed over the years how playing or competing at home spurs the players and teams on (London 2012, is a good example). Russia as the hosts in an easyish group could upset the favourites Uruguay, you can see that the bookmakers do not have much difference in price between these two countries, that small difference is predominately down to Russia being at home, because in truth Uruguay are a better team. Suarez and Cavani will be much the best players on the pitch, Russia do not really have anyone in that calibre. The key game will be the third game on the 25th June, if Argentina have won both their previous games then they may rest some players, whereas all 11 Russians taking to the pitch will again be buoyed by playing in front of their fans.

Russia aren't a great soccer team and aren't in good form either, with no wins in their last 7 matches, since July 2017. So the pick has to be Uruguay, who have top quality players like Suarez and Cavani and qualified from South America ahead of Argentina!

Uruaguay look the strongest team but the odds on price doesn't appeal at all. Despite home advantage I don't rate Russia as team and cant see them making an impact. The price on Eygpt looks appealing. They have some experienced players and wont be a push over for anyone. Their big plus is Mo Salah who has shown time and again that if given a sniff at goal he will oblige and that could be enough to see them top the group.

I think Saudi Arabia are being severely underrated at this World Cup probably due to ignorance. Their players all play domestically, but they were good during qualification and have the easiest group in the tournament. Russia are poor, Egypt are without Salah or potentially having him patched up, so Uruguay look the main obstacle, but they themselves lost 5 times in qualification so are hardly infallible. Overall I just think 40s is too big in an open group.

World Cup 2018 Group A Preview

This World Cup Group has Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Uruguay battling it out to qualify for the last 16.

Uruguay are the favourites to win group A, although recent results have been unimpressive. Their front players Barcelona's Suarez and PSG'S Cavani should however see them through. 

The bookmakers are expecting the hosts Russia to join them, although they are workmanlike at best. They will field predominately Russian domestic league players, an indication that they do not have the quality in the squad of previous years. 

Egypt could be the fly in the ointment for the big two. Their talisman is Liverpool's Mohammed Salah, he secured their place at the World Cup by scoring 5 of their 8 goals in qualification.

 

Saudi Arabia will be predicted by many World Cup tipsters to leave Russia with zero points, however in a recent friendly against Italy they only went down 2-1, they may give a better showing than tipsters expect. 

 

The major battle in this group looks between Russia and Egypt for second place. The two countries meet in Game 2 on the 19th June in St Petersburg.
