Algeria comfortably came through their group stage challenge. It started with a 2-0 win for them over Kenya. Following that was a 1-0 win over Senegal in their toughest group stage game, before rounding off with a comfortable win over Tanzania. In those three matches Algeria produced six unanswered goals, so are moving along well. Adam Ounas is their top scorer from the first stage with two goals. Former Leicester City players Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani have both netted a goal each.

It is a four-match winning streak that Algeria are currently running on at the moment. They have not lost any of their last nine, taking a win in seven of those nine. Looking back just a little bit further the Desert Foxes have suffered just one defeat in their last twelve fixtures. So they are one of the stronger teams in the tournament. They have earned a clean sheet in four of their last six games. They have scored in each of their last nine. This looks to be a favourable draw for them.

Guinea News and Form

Guinea had little from behind them heading into the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. That has pretty much followed in the tournament. They took a draw in their opening game against Madagascar, and then narrowly lost out to Nigeria. Guinea then rounded off with a 2-0 win over Burundi which gave them a good enough tally to get through to the next stage of the competition. The victory over Burundi snapped a long eight-match winless streak of form that they had been on (D4 L4).

Guinea have scored in three of their last four games now, so that is some kind of positive that they can take with them into this fixture. Their clean sheet in their success over Burundi is their only one in their last six. Guinea failed to qualify for the 2017 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations but they have been to the quarterfinals in four of their last five appearances in the tournament. They need a huge performance here to break through the challenge of Algeria.
