Here are our AFCON predictions for Algeria vs Angola on Monday night. Algeria are one of the favourites to go all the way and lift the AFCON 2023 title, so it would be a surprise if the North Africans didn't win Group D with relative ease considering they go up against Angola, Burkina Faso and Mauritania.

Algeria vs Angola prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Under 2.5 Goals

  • Two of the last three meetings between these two nations have ended with under 2.5 goals.
  • Each of Angola's last five fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals.

Another reason why we're backing under 2.5 goals in this game is that Algeria haven't conceded a goal in any of their last three international matches.

Algeria vs Angola team news

Algeria

Algeria cruised to a 4-0 victory in their final warm-up game ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations. Djamel Belmadi's team is packed with both experience and quality, so you can see just why Algeria are one of the top four favourites to win this competition.

Faouzi Ghoulam, Yacine Brahimi, Rachid Ghezzal, Saïd Benrahma and Andy Delort have not been selected for the upcoming AFCON 2023 tournament but Riyad Mahrez is in the squad and captains the side.

Predicted Lineup: Mandréa (GK), Mandi, Bensebaïni, Atal, Aït-Nouri, Féghouli, Bentaleb, Chaïbi, Slimani, Mahrez & Ounas

Angola

Angola played out their fourth goalless match on the run when they played Congo DR last week. Monday's underdogs will be hoping to continue their run of clean sheets to start AFCON 2023 as even a point against Algeria would be considered a fantastic result. Angola haven't lost against Algeria before but still head into this game as the rank outsiders.

Goalkeeper Landú, who has thirty-one caps for his country, has not been called up to the latest Angola squad. Midfielder Herenilson and forwards Vá, Geraldo, Hélder Costa and Ary Papel also miss out.

Predicted Lineup: Neblú (GK), Buatu, To, Gaspar, Fredy, Show, Keliano, Mabululu, Milson, Luvumbo & Augusto

Player to Watch: Riyad Mahrez

Algeria's captain and star player Riyad Mahrez heads into AFCON 2023 in great form with four goals in his last six outings for club and country.

Mahrez has netted thirty-one goals in ninety-one caps for Algeria and we're backing the 32-year-old to impress in the Ivory Coast over the next few weeks.

Every team needs their star player to perform regularly and this is something Mahrez has always done for his country, if things go his way, the former Man City player could challenge for the Golden Boot with the likes of Mo Salah, Victor Osimhen, Youssef En Nesyri and Sadio Mane.
