Senegal vs Algeria Match Preview
Algeria were never out of control as they beat Kenya (2-0) with goals from Baghdad Bounedjah and Riyad Mahrez, now meeting Senegal for their Matchday 2 clash in hope they can build on such a performance despite much more of a challenge expected on Thursday evening.
Desert Foxes have thus extended a seven-match unbeaten streak across competitions, where they also beat Togo (1-4), Qatar (0-1), Tunisia (1-0), Mali (3-2), and held Gambia (1-1) as well as Burundi (1-1) to draws. Djamel Belmadi will want to build on such consistency in the final third and this promises them in a great mood.
However, Senegal will be much more of a challenge too and they come into the match in furious form, with seven consecutive wins seen since October, including a 2-0 win over Tanzania on Monday – where Keita Balde opened the scoresheet and Krepin Diatta added one in the second half.
Lions of Teranga have thus built on a rock-solid finish of their Qualifiers campaign as well as the pick-me-ups ahead of the tournament in the wins over Mali (2-1) and Nigeria (1-0), boasting great defensive tally and having a lot to give in the final third primarily through Balde, Niang, and Sarr who all offer counter-attacking options.
We will now back Senegal to show what they’re made of in the first serious challenge in Egypt, as we back them to secure all three points and practically their spot in the knockout stages with a win priced at 11/10 with Netbet.
Indeed, we’ve seen them base their success on tough defensive displays before anything else, led by Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly. They’ll have to shut down the rivals’ if they’re to make it happen, we feel, and with that in mind – we’re now also backing Senegal to keep a clean sheet at 11/8 with Hamabet.
