SportPesa ambassador, Doctor Khumalo, has picked his winner in today’s World Cup opening match between hosts Russia and opponents Saudi Arabia.
Khumalo believes that the Russians will have the upper hand in the match and walk away with a victory on home soil. These two sides have come up against each other in the past where Saudi Arabia walked away with a 4-2 win in a friendly match back in 1993.
This time around, the Western Asian country are one of the weakest links in this year’s event, tipping them to be on the back foot in this opening encounter.
As the World Cup gets into gear, here’s the rest of Khumalo’s predictions for the rest of the week:
Russia v Saudi Arabia
Doc: Russia win
Egypt v Uruguay
Doc: Uruguay win
Portugal v Spain
Croatia v Nigeria
Doc: Nigeria win
