Algeria vs Burkina Faso Match Preview and Prediction

Algeria vs Burkina Faso: Two-time champion Algeria opened the 2017 AFCON season with a surprise draw against Angola. The team will host Burkina Faso, who won their season opener. Following a 14-match unbeaten streak in all competitions, Algeria may rely on their recent performances.

Burkina Faso beat Mauritania in their AFCON opener after being winless in six of their last 10 matches. Remember that both sides’ AFCON openers had goals under 2.5 fulltime.

Algeria was expected to beat Angola in their opener. They scored early but couldn’t hold on till 90. Algeria’s penalty box foul at 68th concluded the match in a tie. They want to win their first game this season on Saturday.

Algeria had won nine of their last 10 home matches. Such a form will boost their spirits for this match. On the other hand, Burkina Faso does poorly. Six of their last 10 road trips were losses. Saturday should be a good day for local fans.

Algeria vs Burkina Faso: Betting Analysis

Two wins each for both sides in the last four head-to-head matches. Algeria has won three straight over Burkina Faso here. Three of their last four matches at this site had full-time goals under 2.5.

This venue hosted its last match in November 2021, a competitive 2-2 draw. The present displays of both teams differ. In matches they host, Algeria is in great form. Algeria is our initial pick since Burkina Faso has poor road form.

Both sides had goals under 2.5 fulltime in their opening matches. Their recent matches at this location were low-scoring. Algeria has won three of its last five clean sheets; thus, we recommend under 2.5 goals and both teams to score no tip as the second selection.
