With home advantage and an expectant nation Russia will be keen to impress. But recent form is at best shaky. Luckily the group draw has been kind.

Egypt will think they can shock one or other of the favourites to qualify. With one of the most in form players in World football it's hard to count against them.

Luis Suarez

With Suarez and Cavani the Uruguayans have the firepower to storm the first phase but the group of death lies in wait. The second round may be the limit of their potential. They will fancy themselves though and do whatever it takes to win. 

Nobody said this was easy.

World Cup Group A Betting Preview

Russia will be desperate to make an impact on home turf. But two wins in their last ten international matches leaves a lot of doubt. Their most recent games were against France, Spain, Brazil and Argentina. For the most part their confidence took a hammering.

Uruguay qualified ahead of Argentina and occasional fancies Columbia. They will kick, scratch, pull and even bite their way as far as they can manage. Winning the group is a must to potentially avoid Spain in round two but even then Portugal or Morocco could be their undoing. 

Egypt were unlucky to run into Morocco early doors in the African Nations and there is a small chance they could meet in the second round here. Any kind of advancement would be a stellar result. While Salah is in exceptional form can one man carry a team? Maybe. Ask Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Saudi Arabia really are making up the numbers. Even in one of the easier groups their plane home has already been booked. Although Al Sahlawi did finish as joint top scorer in World Cup qualifying. Perhaps there is a goal or two in them yet.
