Al Ahly vs USM Alger Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Al Ahly vs USM Alger will be a battle between the two champions of the African club tournaments this year. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

We have two very different teams that have also not met each other in decades. Based on their current forms, we can expect a lot of goals in this final game. Al Ahly are in great shape right now and their attack is absolutely unbelievable. On the other end, USM Alger have been in poor shape since they won the CAF Confederation cup and their defense has not been worse in years. We expect a strong performance from their opponents.

Match Result Prediction: Al Ahly to Win

We definitely think that Al Ahly will win this game. They are the stronger team out of the two and they are the champions of the stronger competition too. Alger have been in terrible form right now and the team has not won in six consecutive league games, losing five of them. Al Ahly, in turn, have only two defeats in the last 30 games in all competitions. They simply cannot lose. Their defense is incredible and their attack is even more impressive.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Al Ahly

Since this is a final, we think that USM Alger will try to play their best football and may find their way to the goal. On the other end, however, Al Ahly are incredible and they typically score 2-3 goals per game against any opponent. We think that they will win this match with a comfortable margin. When we compare the Al Ahly vs USM Alger line ups, we think that the home side has a solid advantage in strength.

Al Ahly vs USM Alger Team Preview

Al Ahly Preview

There is no stopping Al Ahly. At least, it was like that throughout the entire season in Egypt. They went on to win the title with a single defeat in the entire campaign (in 34 rounds) and that defeat came in the final round, against the next-best team, when the season was long over. They have not played in a while but there is no doubt that they will be the better team in this match. They have the better squad and the more experienced one too.

USM Alger Preview

USM Alger did the impossible when they won the Confederation cup last season. In contrast, they have been one of the weakest teams in the domestic league and did not even end in the upper half of the table. In fact, apart from their success in the international cup, they have had absolutely terrible results and their defense is abysmal. They will have a hard time playing against the top team on the continent.
