Senegal vs Algeria Prediction & Betting Odds

Senegal and Algeria clash at the Cairo International Stadium in the Africa Cup of Nations Final 2019 on Friday evening.

A Youcef Belaili goal just after the interval giving Algeria a 1-0 win when the teams met at the group stage of this year’s tournament less than three weeks ago.

Senegal required extra-time to beat Tunisia 1-0 courtesy of a Dylan Bronn own goal in the semi-finals. The game also saw both teams miss a penalty late on in the regulation 90 minutes. 

Taking aside results against Algeria and Tunisia, Senegal has won all four of their other games at the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 without conceding a goal. That’s as much as could be asked of them, but those other four games were against modest opposition in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Benin.

Recommended Odds

A Riyad Mahrez goal five minutes into stoppage-time gave Algeria a 2-1 victory over Nigeria in their semi-final. They were taken to penalties before beating Ivory Coast in the quarter-finals, but Algeria has won all six games at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
