Tip Reasoning

  • Algeria boast a star-studded squad with players from Europe’s top-five leagues.
  • Seven of Algeria’s last nine wins within 90 minutes eclipsed a -2 handicap.
  • Sierra Leone failed to win four of their only five prior AFCON tournament games.

Defending champions Algeria could send a message

After winning the 2019 AFCON in good style, conceding just two goals across their seven tournament games en route to the a 1-0 success in the final, Algeria look to become the first African nation to successfully defend an AFCON crown since Egypt won three in a row between 2006-2010.

The Algerians are simply irresistible in this sphere, they have 11 squad players plying their trade across Europe’s top-five leagues including the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Said Benrahma of the Premier League.

With these players at their disposal, Algeria have managed to go on an incredible run of 45 games while recording just one defeat since November 2018, and that defeat came against one of only two CAF nations ranked higher than themselves by FIFA (Morocco). As such, Algeria will be licking their lips at the prospect of facing Sierra Leone.

Bus fare home for Sierra Leone

If Sierra Leone are to upset the apple cart and somehow qualify for this group, they will likely look towards their games against Ivory Coast and more realistically, Equatorial Guinea for points. However, failing to beat the likes of Ethiopia and Morocco’s B team recently hardly inspires confidence.

Sierra Leone failed to even get on the scoresheet in five of their last seven games and those were often against much lesser opposition than Algeria. It would take a brave man to back the Leone Stars here as this looks like a case of damage limitation from the outset.

Given the clear gulf in class, I predict a landslide victory for Algeria as they look to send a message to the rest of the AFCON nations, 3-0 looks to have a good chance in the correct score market – watch out for Premier League stars bagging for the Greens!
