Egypt try Russia for size in their second game at the 2018 global football showpiece on Tuesday evening.

Having lost their opening game to Uruguay, no thanks to Jose Gimenez’ late-minute effort, Hector Cuper’s men will be looking to nick the maximum points against the Europeans to bolster their chances of qualifying for the round of 16 of the tournament.

Besides, they will be boosted by the return of Mohamed Salah, who has been sidelined since he suffered a shoulder injury during Liverpool’s Champions League final with Real Madrid.

However, for them to return to winning ways they will have to upset NairaBet's odds of (4.00) having been tagged as underdogs for the tie.

The Sbornaya will be heading into this encounter with a lot of confidence after they tore Saudi Arabia apart in their opening game.

They know that a win will seal their place in the next round of the global football showpiece and will be rooting to achieve the feat. Although they have not previously met with the north Africans, the same betting outfit have tagged them as favourites to come out on top at the price of (2.20).

Both sides cancelling each other out in the tie is available at a juicy (3.30)..

Although Stanislav Cherchesov’s men fired five goals past Saudi Arabia, not many goals will surface in this outing according to the bookies who have offered (1.55) for two or fewer goals.

With Mohamed Salah, who bagged 44 goals for the Reds last season, primed to return in this contest, both sides scoring is valued at (2.10) and the 25-year-old is (2.45) to find the back of the net anytime.

Denis Cheryshev notched a brace for the Sbornaya last time out and he is (3.95) to score anytime in this encounter.

Russia have opened the scoring in their last two games and will be hoping to continue the impressive form at the odds of (1.75) with NairaBet.
