Despite the fact that Saudi Arabia didn't create any great chance, they were improved against Uruguay. However, they lost 0-1 for the second time in this tournament. They had a stable defensive game this time and that wasn't expected, considering their defeat 0-5 from the host team Russia at the opening game of the World Cup. It wasn't only the changes in their squad, but Saudi Arabia faced the game generally in a completely different way. They had even better ratio in the possession of the ball than Uruguayans.
Egypt were a disappointment at the tournament, since the expectations of their return at the World Cup after 28 years were higher than they should have been. Maybe this was due to Mohamed Salah's splendid first year at the Premier League with Liverpool. However superstar of the 'Pharaoh' was quite unlucky due to his injury at the Champions League final, a fact that prevented him from being 100% fit for this tournament.
Egypt have better individuals but this is a whole different game and other factors are more important. Both teams are eliminated and can't continue their journey in the tournament. What counts in this circumstances is which of the two teams want a win the most for their legacy. I am expecting an aggressive performance from both sides. Both teams to score is a logical choice, however I always look for higher odds. Win for the underdog team is my call.
