Algeria begin their Africa Cup of Nations campaign with the match against Sierra Leone on Tuesday at Japoma Stadium.
Algeria will enter into Round 1 in a very convincing fashion. They have won the FIFA Arab Cup Play-offs Final against Tunisia and follows a 27 unbeaten games streak before they face the travelers Sierra Leone.
While the visiting side aren’t enjoying their form, having lost three out of their last five matches. The squad will be coming into this tie, against the stronger home side, on the back of a 0-2 defeat at the hands of Comoros.
Algeria vs Sierra Leone Head-to-head (h2h)

- Their last encounter finished 2-0 in favour of Algeria.
- All those games saw at least two goals scored by Algeria in FT.
Algeria vs Sierra Leone Prediction
Buoyed by their previous results, Algeria will be hoping for more of the same like their last game win over Ghana for 3-0 FT score.
Their most recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that much solidity has been shown by the Algeria rearguard.
Except those two shootout games, they have been a threat going forward of late. They have scored 13 goals from their 7 previous outings.
Following on from a loss in their previous game, Leone and their traveling fans will hope for a better result here. Unfortunately, their current form wont assures a better result for them.
They haven’t won a single game on road in the history of their away match-ups. That’s never good. When they face a stronger side like Algeria, its really safe to bet in favour of Algeria to grab an easy win at Japoma Stadium.
Taking everything into account, we envisage that Algeria will more than likely score more than a couple of goals when they meet Sierra Leone , who might well find it difficult to score themselves.
Accordingly, we see a comfortable win for Algeria at full-time.
