Imam Lyes Stadium will host the football clash on Friday, in which Medea and Paradou will measure their strength ahead of the 9th round of the Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1.
Medea has shown significant progress compared to last season in this term, collecting 14 points from 8 games, as opposed to 9 points collected from 10 rounds during the last term. However, Medea slipped from the Top 3 on the table last weekend, as they suffered a minimal 0-1 defeat by Constantine, and this is the second consecutive game that Lotfi Sellimi's team has not found a net, so now they should be purely goal-oriented.
On the other hand, Paradou is enjoying a successful season so far, but Si-Tahar Cherif El Ouazzani's team played only five games, where they managed to collect 12 of the possible 15 points. In this term, Paradou suffered the only defeat from the current leader Belouizdad, losing 1-3 at home, but they quickly forgot about that defeat and are now coming into this match after two consecutive victories over Magra (3-1) and Tlemcen (1-0).
Paradou will be encouraged ahead of the duel with Medea, as they have beaten them in each of the previous five meetings, including two consecutive triumphs at Imam Lyes Stadium. However, Medea will certainly be eager to get back on the winning track and try to put an end to Paradou’s winning tradition. It should be borne in mind that Medea is a classic home team, having suffered only one defeat in the previous 24 home games, including last season. Despite Paradou’s impressive start, beating Medea on the home turf is easier said than done at the moment. All in all, I believe that both teams will be in a great mood in the attack and I hope we will see goals at both ends of the field.

34-year-old captain Sid Ali Lakroum will, as always, lead his team's attacking line, and the experienced centre-forward has found three goals so far during the new campaign.

Like his colleague, Si-Tahar Cherif El Ouazzani will also have no problems with injuries and suspensions ahead of this week’s duel, so he will have all the key players at his disposal.
23-year-old left-winger Ghiles Guenaoui is one of the key players for Paradou this season, but he will be out due to a leg injury, while Ahmed Nadhir Benbouali will lead the attack with 5 goals scored so far.
