Group A, June 25, 2018
Egypt vs. Saudi Arabia
LetsRUMBL average: 26.25
Mohamed Salah missed out on Egypt's Group A opening match. It resulted in a heartbreaking loss to Uruguay. Salah played in the team's second match against Russia. He scored the Pharaohs only goal against the tournament host and is now set to be the team's main weapon in match three.
Egypt is already eliminated from the tournament and so is Saudi Arabia. Salah will want to show just how good he is against the Middle Eastern nation. Saudi Arabia is in the running to be the worst team at this year's tournament. The Saudis have given up six goals in two matches. Five of those goals came in one game. Expect Salah to excel against Saudi Arabia in match three.
Uruguay vs. Russia
LetsRUMBL average: 37 points
Rodrigo Betancur is one of the most promising young players in world soccer. The Uruguayan midfielder has been outstanding for the South American team so far this World Cup.
Betancur is an important player in Uruguay's midfield. The player has played a full 90 minutes in both of Uruguay's matches. The team must win against Russia to ensure itself of first place in the group. A draw would see Russia top the group due to the team's superior goal difference. Uruguay has a strong attack and world-class players, but the team has failed to score goals. Against Russia, Uruguay could finally have an offensive break out.
Defensively, Uruguay and Bentacur have been great. So, daily fantasy sports players should expect another good performance by the side. Uruguay is far better than Russia, and Bentacur and company will play up to their high standards in match three.
Uruguay vs. Russia
LetsRUMBL average: 34.25
Luis Suarez got off to a slow start at the World Cup. The Uruguayan striker looked slow and his touch wasn't great in match one. However, Suarez played better in match number two. He scored Uruguay's game winning goal against Saudi Arabia. The striker is one of Uruguay's top players and is always a threat to score the team's goals.
Uruguay needs to beat Russia to top Group A. A win will see the Uruguayans as second-place finisher in Group B. The Uruguayans will either play Spain, Portugal or Iran, depending on how results go on the final match day, if they finish second. Suarez will play big in Uruguay's final group stage game to see the team tops the group against Russia.
Group B, June 25, 2018
Spain vs. Morocco
LetsRUMBL average: 23 points
Sergio Busquets is one of Spain's most experienced players. The holding midfielder is key to Spain's performances as he works hard to win the ball for the side. Spain is level with Portugal on four points after two matches. The team's opponents Morocco are already eliminated but can be called the unluckiest team at this year's World Cup. Morocco has played well, but the team just hasn't got the goals it has needed.
Spain needs a draw or a win to get in to the knockout stages. A draw would see the side qualify in second place. A win and superior goal difference to Portugal would allow Spain to top the group. Busquets will play big for Spain and help the team make it into the next round.
