Mozambique vs Algeria predictions and top betting tips
Algeria journeys from North Africa to Mozambique for another match from the CAF World Cup Qualification group stage.
Match result prediction: Algeria to Win
For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Algeria will beat Mozambique. Algeria are comfortably better than Mozambique and they come into this encounter having won six of their previous nine matches, drawing the other three. You have to go back to March 2022 to find the last time Algeria lost a competitive match in normal time with the nation losing 2-1 against Cameroon. Algeria boasts incredible players like Riyad Mahrez, Said Benrahma, Islam Slimani, Houssem Aouar, and Youcef Atal with so many more players not named.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this encounter will be 2.5 goals or more. Algeria has scored nine times in their previous three matches, conceding one in each of those three matches also meaning Algeria averages four goals in their previous three matches. We would be very surprised if this match did finish with less than 2.5 goals being scored. Mozambique does have a poor defence which has seen them concede five times in their previous two matches.
Correct score prediction: 3-0 to Algeria
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Algeria will earn a convincing 3-0 victory. Algeria is comfortably a better footballing nation than Mozambique with the FIFA Rankings placing the two nations 80 places apart in the world rankings with Algeria being one of the best African nations in regards to football. Algeria have so much incredible attacking firepower with one of the world's best players over recent years, Riyad Mahrez being a focal point of their attack supported by players like West Ham United's Said Benrahma and in midfield Roma's Houssem Aouar and Lille's Adam Ounas.
