Mahrez to score at any time

  • Mahrez is set to be instrumental against Mauritania, who Algeria were tipped to beat to-nil earlier this month.

Mauritania vs Algeria prediction

Mauritania vs Algeria team news

Mauritania

After a narrow loss to Burkina Faso at the start of group stages, Mauritania also put up a fight against Angola, but ultimately lost that match too, 3-2. Given that their next opponent is Algeria, it seems likely that Mauritania will once again remain without that elusive first win at AFCON, despite this being their third appearance at the competition.

When it comes to team news, Aboubakar Kamara and Lamine Ba are questionable for this match after leaving Mauritania's last game with injuries.

Predicted LineupNiasse – Keita, Ba, El Abd, Abeid – Gassama, Mouhsine, Fofana – Mahmoud, Koita, Kamara

Algeria

Despite being the top favourites in the group before the tournament started, Algeria enter the last round of group stages without a win, after drawing in both of their duels so far. Luckily for them, their opponent in this round is the weakest team in the group, so Algeria should be able to squeeze by to the next stage.

Predicted Lineup: Mandrea – Atal, Mandi, Bensebaini, Ait-Nouri – Feghouli, Bentaleb, Zerrouki – Mahrez, Belaili, Bounedjah

Player to watch: Riyad Mahrez

It hasn't been a great start to AFCON 2023 for Mahrez as he's yet to score his first goal at the tournament. That being said, he's clearly the best player in this team and we can see him stepping up in this match to secure Algeria gets to the next stage.
