In one of the matches of the group stage of the African Cup, the players of the national teams of Algeria and Equatorial Guinea will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this meeting? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
The players of the Algerian national team have passed the second stage of selection for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The team managed to beat such teams as Burkina Faso and Niger, which brought a ticket to the third round of selection. Belmadi's team came to KAN as the current champion. "White-Green" became the best team of the Black continent in 2019. It is worth noting the fact that the "desert foxes" won the Arab Cup, which was held in December last year. In the first meeting of the new championship in Cameroon, the hosts were able to share points with Sierra Leone - 0:0. The Algerians had a huge advantage over their opponent, but they did not open the enemy's defense.
The national team of Equatorial Guinea failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. At the stage of the second group stage, the Red-whites recorded 3 wins and 2 draws in six rounds. Such results brought 11 points, taking the second place in the "table of ranks". The highest achievement of the team at KAN is the 4th line, which was obtained 7 years ago. In the opening match at the tournament, the national lightning could not keep a zero draw on the scoreboard, conceding the only goal from Ivory Coast.
Statistics and figures:
- Algeria is the favorite of the meeting;
- The Algerians have not lost in 28 games in all tournaments;
- Equatorial Guinea has a 2-match winless streak;
- The rivals have not met each other before.
I assume that the Algerian national team will be able to break the dry streak and score a couple of goals against the opponent. Equatorial Guinea will not remain in debt either. Our bet will be in favor of an increased total.
