saudi-arabia vs egypt Head to Head:

Egypt have won two and lost one of their three meetings with Saudi Arabia, with the most recent being a 2-1 win for Egypt in 2007. The only competitive meeting between the sides saw Saudi Arabia hammer Egypt 5-1 in the 1999 Confederations Cup.

saudi-arabia vs egypt Tip Reason:

Saudi Arabia have faced an African team in each of their four previous World Cup campaigns, never facing the same nation twice (W1 D2 L1). That one victory came against Morocco in 1994 – their first ever win at a World Cup finals. This will be Egypt’s first ever World Cup match against an Asian nation and the third different continent they’ve faced after Europe and South America. Each of the last eight goals Egypt have conceded in the World Cup have come in the second half of matches. Saudi Arabia are yet to score a goal at the 2018 World Cup – there have only been 11 previous occasions of teams failing to score at a World Cup finals tournament in 3+ games, with Honduras and Algeria the last teams to do this in 2010. Saudi Arabia are now winless in their last 12 World Cup matches (W0 D2 L10) and they have lost their last four games in the competition without scoring a single goal. Since joining Liverpool in July 2017, Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah has scored 49 goals in 57 appearances for club and country in all competitions. Egypt’s Mohamed Salah scored with his only shot on target in a World Cup match in their defeat against Russia last time out.
