Algeria vs Nigeria: Our Best Free Predictions and Betting Tips

Algeria looks to continue their good run in this clash against the super eagles. The desert foxes have now mauled the super eagles of Nigeria thrice in a row, so it is a question of whether Algeria’s head coach, Djamel Belmadi, will lead his side to another feast against the super eagles yet again. We have the free predictions for the clash as follows:

Algeria favourites to score first

Algeria is our pick to find the back of the net first. The desert foxes are running riot currently after winning all the last 9 friendly matches, dating back to June 2021. Six of the victories had clean sheets. On the other hand, Nigeria’s Super Eagles have failed to win a friendly match in the last 8 attempts since October 2019. They lost five of those friendlies and kept only one clean sheet from a barren draw.

Algeria to win

From our first Algeria vs Nigeria prediction, it is obvious Algeria will be a tough team to play against. The desert foxes have remained fearless while Nigeria’s soccer team has faced criticism for their lackluster performance in recent games. We predict a win for Algeria.

Low probability of a goal-goal outcome

A big challenge for Nigeria in this friendly clash with Algeria is poor defending and inability to score when it matters. On the other hand, Algeria’s desert foxes have been solid defensively. We think this will be another clean sheet win for Algeria, so we are tipping goals on only one end of the pitch.

Algeria vs Nigeria Friendly Match Preview


Algeria, popularly known as dessert foxes, is having a good run. They have won all their friendly matches since June 2022. This clash with Nigeria’s Super Eagles is another chance for the foxes to feed on another prey and we think they will take it.


Nigeria’s Super Eagles have failed to win a friendly match in 8 such assignments since 2019. The poor run of form, during which they scored only 3 goals is a big headache for their new head coach. The visitors risk losing more than they are likely to win this friendly game against the dessert foxes.
