Tanzania Prediction- Can Tanzania pull off miracle?

Tanzania sit bottom of group C with zero points to their name following back-to-back defeats to start their campaign off in disastrous fashion.

A 2-0 defeat to Senegal was followed by a 3-2 loss to Kenya and they now need something close to a miracle if they’re to emerge from this group.

With both Kenya and Senegal sitting on 3 points apiece and playing each other in the final match of the group, Tanzania need to win by at least a 4-goal margin here.

The chances of this happening seem extremely remote especially as Tanzania have won just 2 of their last 9 matches overall and face the group leaders in this encounter.

Wins over Cape Verde Islands and Uganda may not be enough to convince Tanzania that they can cause a major upset over Algeria on Monday night.

Previous encounters have seen Tanzania subjected to heavy defeats to Algeria in 4-1 and 7-0 routs in the last two meetings between these two sides.

Algeria Prediction – Can Algeria maintain 100% record?

As mentioned earlier, Algeria sit top of Group C with the maximum 6 points thanks to a blistering start to their Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

Back-to-back wins over Kenya 2-0 and a 1-0 victory against Senegal have guaranteed Algeria a place in the quarter-finals with a game to spare.

Algeria will meet the 3rd placed team from either Group A, B or F in the last eight, so manager Djamel Belmadi may five some of his fringe players a run out in this clash.

Nevertheless, competition for a place in the starting XI of the quarter-finals will be hotly contested, so we can expect no let-up from Algeria here.

They bring an impressive 8-match unbeaten run into this final group match with Tanzania, a sequence of results that include 6 wins.

Both of Algeria’s wins to date during the group phase were to nil, so I daresay they’ll be keen to preserve their clean sheet record in this tussle too.

Their recent dominance over Tanzania should also give them a psychological advantage here too.


Key-Facts – Tanzania v Algeria

  • Tanzania have won just 2 of their last 9 matches overall in all competitions
  • Algeria have won the last 2 meetings against Tanzania, 4-1 and 7-0 respectively
  • Algeria have won 6 of their last 8 matches overall in all competitions


Betting Tips Verdict

Tanzania will do well to avoid a third defeat here, especially given their last two meetings against Algeria.
