Algeria vs Burkina Faso team news

Algeria

Algeria played out a 1-1 draw with Angola in their AFCON Group D opener. They have no losses in their last 13 games in all competitions, with nine wins and three draws. As it stands, Djamel Belmadi's troops are second on the group table, behind group leaders Burkina Faso. They'll hope to take the top spot by winning this match. There are no new injury concerns for Algeria.

Predicted lineup: Mandrea, Atal, Mandi, Bensebaini, Nouri, Bentaleb, Mahrez, Chaïbi, Bennacer, Belaïli, Bounedjah.

Burkina Faso

On the other hand, Burkina Faso defeated Mauritania by a lone goal in their first game. They've now won back-to-back matches, three of their last four games too. Hubert Velud's side have a tough task ahead of them, as they face an in-form Algeria. It'll be interesting to see if they can retain their place at the top of Group D after this match.

*Confirmed Algeria vs Burkina Faso lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to watch: Baghdad Bounedjah

Baghdad Bounedjah scored Algeria's only goal in their 1-1 draw against Angola. He has been in sensational form for club and country, scoring nine times whilst providing three assists in his last 10 games. It should be worth keeping an eye out for the Al Sadd player.
