Algeria vs Nigeria Match Preview
Nigeria rewarded our bet on them to come through their Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final against South Africa in 90 minutes – and we will play up our winnings on them to follow up and beat Algeria.
The Super Eagles needed a late winner from William Troost-Ekong to get the better of South Africa after Samuel Chukwueze’s opener had been cancelled out, and they have certainly upped their goalscoring output in the knockout phase following a 3-2 success over defending champions Cameroon.
That is just as well too, because Algeria have built their run to the semi-finals on being solid at the back – they did not concede a goal in winning all of their three group games, including against the team who are now favourites to lift the trophy, Senegal.
Algeria impressed again in the round of 16, winning 3-0 against Guinea, but then needed a penalty shootout to get past the Ivory Coast after conceding their first goal of the tournament.
Much will depend on Algeria’s creative players here who are the other strength of their team, notably Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez and out-of-contract Porto winger Yacine Brahimi.
But Nigeria are also full of quality from the top leagues around Europe, with former Watford striker Odion Ighalo their top scorer so far in Egypt, and they may just represent the better value to stay on course to repeat their most recent AFCON triumph of 2013.
