Tip Algeria - Djibouti
Prediction published on September 2, 2021 at 3:50 AM - Modified on September 2, 2021 at 3:53 AM
After conquering Africa, Algeria are eyeing a place at the big stage – the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. They start that journey with a home game against Djibouti in Group A of the CAF qualifiers. Algeria are ranked third in Africa, way ahead of Djibouti at 50th place and will be expected to sweep past their visitors easily. The hosts are on a 12-match unbeaten run, with nine wins and six clean sheets in the process. They have five straight wins and scored two or more goals in eight of their last 10 matches. Ahead of this game, Algeria came from behind to beat Liberia 5-1 in a friendly game. They’ve led at half time and full time in four of their last five matches and will hope to improve on their performances in the World Cup qualification matches. In the last six World Cup qualification games, they have no win, just four losses, but it is important to note that these came against very strong sides.
Djibouti are one of the weakest nations in Africa and any result here other than a loss would be a shock. They are coming from a loss to Lebanon in the Arab Cup and will hope to get a head start in their Qatar 2022 qualification campaign. Two wins and three clean sheets only in the last 10 matches don’t put them in very good standing going to this game. They have managed more than a goal in just one of their last 10 matches, and have just one win in their last 12 World Cup qualification matches. That win came against another lowly ranked nation, Eswatini, in the first round of the qualifiers, and they have 10 losses in the 12 matches. In seven of their last 10 World Cup qualification matches, Djibouti have failed to score and they head to North Africa winless in their last seven away matches in World Cup qualifiers.
