Senegal vs Algeria: Top free betting tips
Senegal plays host to Algeria in a friendly game at Stade Me Abdoulaye Wade on Tuesday, 12 September. Both teams enter this game after finishing their group stage of the African Cup of Nations Qualifiers at the top of their respective groups.
Match result prediction: Senegal to win
Senegal and Algeria have been quite identical recently by recording three victories and two draws in the last five games. However, Senegal will be optimistic about the home advantage where they won four of the previous five games, ending one in a draw. Lions of Teranga are also undefeated in the last two H2Hs against Algeria while winning the last one. Therefore, we set Senegal as our favourites to take the lead in this game.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Only two of the previous five H2Hs of these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. But Senegal’s front line has been prolific in front of goal previously, scoring 12 goals in the last five matches. However, the Lions of Teranga have also conceded goals in four games during the aforementioned period. On the other hand, Algeria scored six goals in the same number of matches. Given these statistics, we predict the teams to share a total of at least three goals in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Senegal
Senegal has found the back of the net multiple times in two of the previous five matches. But Algeria has scored more than once in only one of the last five road fixtures, remaining goalless in one match. Lions of Teranga also look prepared at the back end as they have conceded just one goal in three of the last five home and away games, keeping one clean sheet. Based on these numbers, we predict a 2-1 victory for Senegal in this encounter.
