Algeria vs Sierra Leone is the first meeting between the two teams. Algeria is the title holders and boasts two titles since the inception of the ACON competition. Will the Desert Foxes kick off their AFCON campaign or they should prepare for tough duel against Sierra Leone? Our analysis for the above two predictions are as follows:
Over 2.5 @ 18/25 (1.72)
We expect this fixture to yield lots of goals. Algeria is the superior opponent in this game and we think they will give Sierra Leone trouble on the front foot. While Sierra Leone has done well defensively based on their last four games, during which they kept three cleans, they will face a difficult opponent in Algeria. Algeria is undoubtedly among the favourites to lift the AFCON trophy this year and a massive win in the first game of the tournament should be the aim of the head coach. The Desert Foxes are unbeaten in 25 matches.
Algeria to be ahead at the break @ 53/100 (1.53)
Our second pick backs Algeria to win the first-half of this match. For a price of 1.53 with our selected bookmaker, you can place a bet on the Desert Foxes to go ahead sat the break. They have the best run of form coming to this match, perhaps the best form of all the teams taking part in the AFCON tournament. On the other hand, Sierra Leone boasts only two victories in the last 10 matches. Within that duration, the West African country lost six games.
