  • Competition: World Cup Qualifiers, First Stage
  • Date: Thursday, 6th June, 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UTC +1 / 21:00 CEST
  • Venue: Nelson Mandela Stadium (Baraki)

Algeria and Guinea, probably two of the best teams in Group G of the World Cup Qualifiers, will face off at Nelson Mandela Stadium in Baraki on Thursday evening.

Algeria failed to qualify for the World Cup on the previous two occasions in Russia and Qatar and is trying to stop that negative momentum. Before the WC Qualifiers, Algeria had a poor run in the Africa Cup of Nations, failing to come out of Group D. Still, after appointing a new coach, Vladimir Petkovic, it seems they started playing much better. Also, this qualification cycle started very well for the Greens, as they hold the top spot with two wins in two rounds.

Guinea are #76 on the FIFA World Ranking list and #15 in the CAF region but have never appeared in the World Cup. In the last WC Qualification cycle, they weren't even close to securing an appearance as they finished 3rd in Group, 12 points away from 1st-placed Morocco. However, they had a decent run in the Africa Cup of Nations since they reached the Quarter Finals but were eliminated by DR Kongo 3:1. In this WC Qualifiers, Guinea started the competition with three points in two rounds and with a potential loss to Algeria, they would already be six points behind the first place. Hence, they need to secure a positive result to keep up with Algeria.

Algeria vs Guinea pick: Over 2.5 goals

Algeria have been really efficient in recent matches. They easily score two or three goals against most teams in Africa. In the last ten games in all competitions, they scored two or more goals on eight occasions. However, their defense has shown some significant flaws. Over the previous two matches, they allowed five goals to South Africa and Bolivia. Additionally, they haven't had a clean sheet in the last five games.

Guinea scored 11 goals in the last two games. Yes, they faced poor teams (Bermuda and Vanuatu), but it was still a good offensive display. Additionally, they are scoring pretty regularly against most teams, and they have done so at least once in the last eight games in all competitions. So, scoring against not that great Algeria's defense is a completely real scenario.

Lately, these teams played mostly high-scoring games in their h2h encounters and were over 2.5 goals in four of the last five matches. Considering all the above, we believe that an over 2.5 goals bet is the best choice for this WC Qualifiers match.

Algeria team news

Algeria sacked their coach (Djamel Belmadi) after an unsuccessful AFCON and appointed Vladimir Petkovic as the new head coach. Under Petkovic, the team played two (friendly) matches and won four points. Before joining Algeria, the 60-year-old coach was in charge of Bordeaux, the Swiss national team, Lazio, Sion, and a few others. 

One of the better defenders on the team, Ramy Bensebaini, has not been called for the upcoming games due to injury. However, Algeria have many good options at the back, and his absence will not affect the team too much. On the other side, one of the players who will definitely be missed is Riyad Mahrez, who is still not 100% ready after suffering a minor injury late in the season.
